FATE

FATE

In the guiding hands of - Karmic force ?,
directs the soul of One, on life’s coarse ?

This one knows only to well, I must confess,
just how much One, Fate, Karma, can make of life, a mess.

Can it be that Fate, be but a court Jester,
played by the hands of a Planetary Enforcer,
that master manipulator, the Cosmic Puppeteer
who leads One, to see life through a crystal tear, 
a multi facet, rainbow refracted, look into One’s fears, 
fear in all it’s colours, across the face of One’s years,
reflected in the looking glass, upon the face of many mirrors,
realizing that life for many, are but years of many horrors !

B.J."A" 2

    My Friend ~ How life and karma direct our fate. Life is like a mirror in which we see what no one else can see. What would we have our life be if our crystal rainbow could reveal the perfect path? I like the glass you look through to find the multi facet rainbow. Nice poem my friend.

    .”, how true !, as are most others my Dear, they where the cathartic medicine, Dr. Catharsis prescribed to carry me through and passed, ( even if it was a long analytical journey ) after the realizations that the Polish Princess, and then my Chinese Lotus Blossom, would never love me.

    My Dear Debbie : I would like to thank you for all your thoughtful comments, for your deep concerns for my well being, for your touching emotions ( “ I like the glass you look through to find the multi facet rainbow.”, “ I wonder at your life my friend.”, “ My heart breaks to read such a sad poem my friend.” ) as expressed - in the above quotes -, Debbie, for some of my life’s journeys. “ such a sad poem my friend.”,

    Che sara sara !, that is life Debbie, for some of us and so it was better to have loved and lost, then to have never have loved at all, and so my Dear, you need not “ I wonder at your life my friend. ”, for I have “ I hope you have a fun and happy one. ” travelled many a long and winding road during my long and checkered career and even if it has been and is a roller coaster ride, it all ( for the most part ) is good and I am – thank you - having “ a fun and happy one. ” .

    Thank you Matthew, very thoughtful of you, for thinking so, “ Nice poem.” and thank you for browsing through my stuff . “ Take A Hint ” and “ That's not what I meant ” seem to have the same essence that drive us to write of how we have been perceived or treated and how we express and respond to our life’s experiences .
