Savita Tyagi

From Destiny's Palm

From destiny's palm
Like a fledgling we eat
Have no doubt or qualm.

An unknown force
Capable of paving the way
In whatever way it wills

Like a light in pitch dark
Pulling us to tread on its path
Our will drawn to its direction

All our efforts in working
To meet the set destiny
At right time in right conditioning

Aided by our sense of fulfillment
We guard life's chosen votive of
Countless passion and desire

As a soldier with all his heart and might
Defends his post in a razing war
Carrying the orders of a knight.

    Illustrated destiny is really much abstract to communicate. Actually we are very much aware of the next moment to come. That's also quiet unknown to us. So I don't bother of any such destiny, rather Almighty is much more easy to communicate with. If destiny also controlled by God, then point of attraction should be the supreme.....Simply I think this way.....Thank you, well written. (Report) Reply

    Destiny controls us without our knowing it and we act as per the dictates of destiny! I am reminded of Omar Khayyam's lines.....
    'The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
    Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

    Great write Savita! (Report) Reply

    It seems counterintuitive that we have to 'work' our way towards our inevitable future, but that's the way it is. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Savita. In one sense our destiny is written in our palms. But one should know the proper reading.
    lines keeps on changing along with our destiny. But every thing takes place in our life at proper time and at proper place.......Loved reading it. (Report) Reply
