Desires for Youth, Glory, and Gold

A king desires gold;
A queen staves her age;
The princess craves power,
But I grant none of these.

My skill to read
Starry maps of night
Creates nothing;
Foretells only possibility;
And grants no certainty.

Points of light plot no destiny;
glittering hope ordains no fate;
Foretelling maps only through 
The black holes of the futures
Where one falls.
