Fate And Destiny


fate, future feed forward;
destiny, done.


the ancients
well understood

distinctions between
fate and destiny.


now, modern shamans
proclaim dawning

of days of destiny.
so don't sit

there complaining
about not knowing

what the hell's going on

    As fate is already a written verdict, destiny completes it when the time comes. Consonance in the first two lines sounds nice. The modern shamans make a good business not only in villages even in cities. The theme of this poem is strange and interesting. (Report) Reply
