'Tis All for the Best; ( Villanelle )

( After W. H. Auden )
 
I would say nothing like I told you so *,
Despite knowing the course your choices take;
Because I cannot interfere, you know.

Tis pointless inventorying your escrow:  
Aware of outcomes, before it's too late;
'Tis all for the best; it ensures your growth.  

There is no future that isn't malleable,
No nightmare exists, which you cannot wake;  
Because I cannot interfere, you know.
 
The signs are there, in the spiritual world,
Glints of light, whispers, nudges as you play;
'Tis all for the best; it ensures your growth.  
 
It won't be easy, learning on your own;
You will surely fall hard along the way;  
Because I cannot interfere, you know.
 
This life is your personal freewill zone
Any mistake is not your final fate;
Because I cannot interfere, you know;
'Tis all for the best; it ensures your growth.
