Fate-Whatever Happens

"Fate - Whatever Happens In Your Life" is a poem in response to the word prompt "Fate" provided by Brenda Arledge, a dear friend, and a talented poet who inspires us writers, to get our creative wheels spinning.

Thank you, Brenda, for inspiring me to write.

Fate - Whatever Happens In Your Life

Fate how I anticipate

What is going to happen

What hand are you going to play

What are you thinking

Fate, what is your deal today

Why do you come crashing at my gate

Screaming like a banshee

Telling me that this is my fate

What heartless soul do you possess

Do you have a soul at all, I wonder

Fate sometimes you brim with goodness

Showering me with good times, with happiness

But sometimes you deal blow after blow

Enough to flatten my heart and soul

Uprooting my very being

Throwing me away

Casting me into a tornado

The dark clouded wind swirls around me

Spinning me through bursts of dust and smoke

Choking breathless, I suffocate

Timeless moments seem to pass

Drowning in a sea of agony

I wait for it all to end

But suddenly all is calm

The sun shines

The trees sway

The wind is gentle

The tornado went away

I can finally breathe easy

I feel free fate has spared me

Fate, you have been kind to me

When you think about it all

Life is a roller coaster with its ups and downs

There are happy days and days when you feel down

Whatever happens

Whatever comes your way

Be calm, breathe easy

Remember, the dark clouds are never there to stay

The sun will shine

And you will find your way

Whatever happens
