I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Fate's Path / Response to Word Prompts Help Creativity / Week 16 is an article I wrote for the word prompt, "fate."
The first poem, "Fates Path" is about her finding a lifelong romance by accident.
The second poem, "Beating Fate" is about how she turns the tables & becomes the master of her own fate hoping to share their last moment together.
"The Rainbow Connection - Carpenters "
Distraught from her mundane life
she drives to the local park
for some fresh air and a walk.
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.
— Jaime T. Lichauco
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
