What is my destiny?


What is my destiny?
What is your destiny?
Can it be changed at all?
Or is it another hallucination
A figment of our imagination,
of what life should hold in stock for us

If destiny would walk our paths
I would say to destiny
Why have you come all this way, just to lead us astray?

    Oh Sylvia, what a poem of reality you have composed here as yes ones destiny can be quite confusing at times but there is a reason for everything and most of the time we do not understand the reasoning. I was drawn into your poetic works by the title and now so glad I was as you have a wonderful writing style that captures and holds your audience through each word. Now, I must Thank You for giving us all a little of you and especially your glowing talent of poetry. Wonderful poem. As I ready myself to part I have a very small request for you. I really want to ask that you please keep your creative pens ink flowing so your wonderful poetry keeps growing. Your Reading Fan, Mickey Pig Knuckles :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
