Heaven Mandate (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I had written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

When a leaf is falling into a stream,
as it flows effortlessly down an unknown waterway,
from the beginning of time till the leaf leaps into the stream,
what heaven mandate has the leaf at a seam of the waterway?

As an apple fell onto the ground,
sir Isaac Newton felt a force of gravity,
hitting him in the head with a loud bang sound,
what heaven mandate placed Mr. Newton on unraveling a mystery?

From disastrous calamity to a baby’s birth in time,
unending volume of historical records attest the humanity,
as we wreck to build and build to wreck on a dime,
what heaven mandate has for a possible future of humanity?
