Mind and body lost long ago,
Yet I continue on a path of much fame.
Many want me to about face
And return from whence I came.
Yet, some would simply stop me,
Hoping that I’ll help their cause.
But none can stand before me,
I break and ruin and bring to light their flaws.
And if you decide you want to use me,
I must warn you not to lose me,
A father I am, of all, but never a bride
And it’s of your fate that I will decide.
What am I?
An answer will be posted in a few weeks, if none have guessed correctly.
