Fate's Path

Distraught from her mundane life

she drives to the local park

for some fresh air and a walk.


Lingering thoughts

eat at her core

as she strolls down the path in a daze.


Suddenly she stumbles

tripping over her own two feet

landing in the arms of a familiar face

with a smile that instantly brightens up her day.


Little did she know

this chance encounter is the beginning

of a lifelong romance.


Until the day she looks back

encountering the last rainbow

they will ever share,

knowing it was meant to be.

When it's time for souls to meet, there's nothing on earth that can prevent them from meeting, no matter where each may be located.

Beating Fate

She’s tired of watching fate

destroy each tiny morsel

her taste buds enjoy.


She no longer kicks back

enjoying the ride,

waiting for that fateful moment.


She turns the tables,

becoming the master of her own existence,

manifesting her dreams into reality.


Selfishly embracing each one

with a strong determination

trying to beat time,

hoping to share their last moments together.

Do not be afraid, our fate cannot be taken from us, it is a gift.

— Dante Alighieri
