Fate - Word Prompt Challenge by Brenda Arledge

The Following is a poem in response to Brenda Arledge’s weekly word prompt. Brenda, needs no introduction. She is a talented writer and a beautiful poet with so many beautiful poems on HubPages and other writing platforms. Every week Brenda gives a word prompt to the hubbers to help creativity. Many hubbers are responding to her word prompts weekly.

I have never ever written anything as a writer, as I am not a writer or a poet, but I want to be a good one. This is for the first time I am writing a poem. I challenged myself at this time. I will participate in Brenda’s word prompt. It is a good way to promote creativity. Thank you, Brenda for the word prompt. You are doing an excellent job.

In the following lines, I have tried to define fate. These are the words going through my mind, which I have tried to express. I hope you like my response, Brenda and all other hubbers. Let me know through your comments about this poem, how much you like it or how can I improve it.

What is Fate? – Poem

Something which is pre-planned for you,

That you never knew about.

Something that is meant for you,

And you never knew about.

We call it, Fate.

Something good that happens to you

And that you never knew about

And when it occurs, you thank The Maker of this unknown fate.

Something bad that comes in your way,

And that you never knew about.

You must accept it anyway, tho you hate,

Then people say that was in your fate.

My Thoughts on Fate

In urdu, fate is called taqdeer or kismet. In hindi, it is called naseeb.

Let us hope for the best fate every day. May the Maker of our fates make beautiful fates of everyone, Ameen!! (so be it)

Impress the Maker of the fate through your good deeds to get a good fate in return.

I'm so delighted you decided to join us.

It is always a great feeling to write.

In your poem "What is Fate? you tell us fate is preplanned.

When something good happens we thank our creator & when bad things happen we have no choice but to accept it.

I like your outlook. Good fate for everyone.

Great words. You did a wonderful job with this one, but next time try being a little more descriptive.

Welcome to the world of Poetry.

You are a poet now.

A good first attempt Rozlin. When events happen which are beyond our control, we call it fate. Whether it is good or bad we have to accept and do our best. Keep writing, all the best.
