Poem: Fate

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Fate is a poem about her remembering that first smirk. The smile she knows as a lie. It's common place now but she pretends she has no clue. She lets him hang himself out to dry for she knows it will come back to bite him.

"No Alibis by Eric Clapton"

Fate

She remembers that first smirk,

the smile she would come to know

as a lie.


It’s common place now

like a rose with a thorn

when he tries to pull the wool over her eyes.


She pretends she has no clue

letting him hang himself out to dry

no longer wasting precious moments of her time.


For she knows the day will come

when he hears the echo of his own words

coming back to bite him

where the sun don’t shine.

poem-fate

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

— Mark Twain

Sometimes it takes a while, but the truth always comes out in the end. I like that quote by Mark Twain.

Beautifully poem, Brenda. I loved the message in the poem. The quote you mentioned in the end by Mark Twain is so true, A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

Thanks for sharing

Blessings and Love

Brenda, I agree. Like as I say beforehand, it's the law of the universe or God. I usually stay in a positive sportlight. One can't stay in both. A choice is made. Your character knows that, and so that guy reap what he sows. Brenda, you're always welcome. Have a great day likewise, and stay safe.

Fate will come back to bite deceivers. I am so glad the lady in the poem understands this and doesn't waste any precious moments of her life. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem about fate.

This world definitely has alot of different pathways to take on our journey.

Fate usually comes back to bite one...but no one worries about that happening.

Have a great day.

This world truely is full of double dealings. But the law of the universe at last ALWAYS prevails. But only a small minority take heed.
