Fate, cleverly in disguise,
Moves around invisible,
Master-minding our lives,
Leaves effects indelible!

Just one stroke of its fingers,
Vast mountains it can move,
None its shadow can escape,
Every second goes to prove!

Our direction firmly monitored,
Altered, many a plan,
When fate decides, we bow low,
Acceding to its command!

Some master fate decidedly
Shaping their own destiny
They fell, swoop, shape and scour
Yet land up at fate’s door

Fate waits with time a-plenty
Nothing can cramp its style
For royal and for pauper
Each title will walk its aisle

Fate’s king! We’re at its service,
An ever loyal band,
And fate, it has the last laugh,
With a flourish of its hand!

(This is for many who ascribe things to fate.. For me, there’s FAITH and the MIGHTY HAND OF GOD)

    So true! Especially the footnote. Because whatever happens is a part of God’s plan
    And no matter how good or bad it may seem to us
    In the end it is all for the best … To fulfil God’s divine plan…
    What a beautiful poem!!!! So wonderfully rhymed! 😃👏👏👏
