A Lump Of Clay (A Quatrain) - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

When to destiny’s approach I heartily give way
And ponder no more on my present state,
I feel my existence moulded like a lump of malleable clay
And shaped by that divine hand who guides our fate.

    A beautiful quatrain where you express your willingness to be moulded in divine hands like a lump of malleable clay without dreading Destiny's approach that cannot be prevented or counteracted! (Report) Reply
