As I tried to decipher my destiny in the eyes of the horrendously slithering crocodile; confronting him face on beside the marshy swamps, 


All I saw was a life blended consisting of savage deeds compounded with profound animosity; and before I could ask him a volley of questions; he gobbled me like mincemeat with his knife like jaws.


 


As I tried to cognize my destiny in the eyes of a frivolous chimpanzee; patting him gently on his back, 


All I saw was an aboriginal life of leaping voraciously on trees; inexorably masticating a meal of succulent banana; unable to go to school like humans do.


 


As I tried to perceive my destiny in the eyes of the hideous lizard; blowing my breath in gasps on its serrated skinned body, 


All I saw was a bleak future devouring scores of slimy insects; spending the remainder of my life in realms of despondency and circumspection.


 


As I tried to envisage my destiny in the eyes of a pernicious vulture; sitting in close proximity with its monstrous sized eggs, 


All I saw was a brutal life plucking decayed carrion from the flesh of lifeless bodies; scaring innocuous creatures in the sky with my dreaded persona.


 


As I tried to visualize my destiny in the eyes of a grizzly bear; riding on his furry back through the snow clad mountains, 


All I saw was a shivering life in the freezing winds; a future in which there would be absolutely no sun in the cosmos to sight.


 


As I tried to conceive my destiny in the eyes of a potbellied tortoise; forcing him to extrude out his slender neck, 


All I saw was a life full of indolence blended with languid ease; without budging a solitary inch for years on the trot.


 


As I tried to speculate my destiny in the eyes of a hunch backed camel; endeavoring to caress its slimy nose, 


All I saw was a life full of confronting sweltering sandstorms; consuming scraggy cactus for morning breakfast as well as nocturnal supper.


 


As I tried to discern my destiny in the eyes of mammoth dinosaur; standing like an inconspicuous mosquito on the ground, 


All I saw was a life replete with barbaric domination; and before I could even realize; he instantaneously pulverized me to saw dust under his diabolical feet.


 


As I tried to contemplate my destiny in the eyes of a scintillating dolphin; floating beside it in the swirling ocean, 


All I saw was a life diving acrobatically in the waters; occasionally being eaten by the preposterously huge white shark.


 


As I tried to comprehend my destiny in the eyes of a cold blooded murderer; standing in the firing range of his gleaming revolver, 


All I saw was a life assassinating innocuous individuals; coating my palms with their innocent blood.


 


And eventually as I tried to imagine my destiny in the eyes of my beloved; I felt submerged in waves of unprecedented euphoria, 


And it was here that I saw my life the most beautiful; the most ravishing; the most exhilarating out of all of my previous lives; and I discovered a host of blissfully fulfilling  purposes to live.
