Deathstiny (dedicated to the Westgate victims)


Who tills the path of man, who draws the map? Who draws the dotted lines, who fills the gap? Are we in this life mere pawns. Or active players of our own moves. And in this life of agonising thorns, who draws the spaces to make the moves. And where there is murder at the mall, war at the gate and suffering on the street, are we the architects of our own fall, or a duex ex machina with dramatic feat, is urging our performance at killing his enemy. I mean what really is destiny.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dedicated to the loving memory of the victims of the Westgate Hall terrorist attack in Kenya. The poem is in question of the motive for a religious ideologies terrorist attack, it questions the purpose of man in relation to the mind of God. It examines the possibility of Man only finding excuses and using God in perpetration of their evil, or if man himself was only created for the purpose putting God's will to exterminate creations of his own hands into action, and yet he does not create them auto programmed with a certain religious belief. The poem seeks that every man determines what is in the realm of his destiny, whether he is just a tool for the use of an external evil genius or he is the 'architect of his own fall' or victory

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
