Fate, the mysterious entity - word challenge week 16 by Brenda Arledge

Umesh is a freelance writer contributing his creative writings on varied subjects in various knowledge and educational sites in internet.

Preface

Fate or destiny is a mysterious entity. The interesting thing about it is that it is there whether we believe in it or not. It may appear paradoxical but it is true. By believing in it all the questions are answered while not believing in it will increase our problems more and the challenge of finding the truth about it will also become more complex and literally speaking the mystery will deepen further.

This poem is a subtle effort to depict the character of this elusive power called fate. The inspiration has come from the weekly challenges that the hubber Brenda Arledge gives to us in her own poetic way and this time the word fate was given to us for creative expressions.

Fate - the mysterious entity

When one was born,
Was brought up and grew.
Was it a coincidence,
Or privilege of a few.

Some as healthy child,
While others diseased.
Was it a justice of fate,
Or the Gods pleased.

One can't choose one's parents,
Can't choose a rich family.
Whatever is provided,
Is to be accepted silently.

There is no place for why,
Accept whatever is destined.
Undertake this journey,
With a calm and composed mind.

Scholars want to know,
The truth behind the fate.
So far no sucess got,
It is a forbidden gate.

It still fully exists there,
Called disaster of fate.
It would remain there,
Whether you love it or hate.

I like your thoughts here. I sometimes wonder what if I had been born to other parents or in another country or was very different in some way? We can't help genetics, who we are born to, or the circumstances we are raised in but we can adapt.

Umesh

Your poem, "Fate - the mysterious entity" reminds us that we are all born into different lives.

It is so true that we have no choice from the very beginning and we must accept the hand we've been dealt.

Fate hides from even the scholars mind. It seems to have it's own agenda.

No matter whether we love it or hate it, fate is there.

Accept what is destined for we cannot question it.

I often wonder why some people have it easier than others, but like you say.. we cannot question why.

Great poetry.

I will post a link in the article.
