Divine Fate - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
Are we no more than mere puppets
Remote controlled by the secret strings of fate?
Or are we just a passing eyewitness
Watching a puppetry show being staged?
Life seems dependent on planets and stars
That has already cast our lot,
Destiny seems to set a bar
A hurdle unbridgeable by the best of efforts.
But have we not seen people
Navigate cheerfully unhindered by fate?
Surdas and Milton wrote to create ripples
Though their worldly visions had barricaded gates.
So, if ‘fate' is our master who rules and governs
On efforts invested can't we a difference earn?
Poet's Notes about The Poem
However, I believe, ‘ fate' too has a big role in our life since our birth into a society and circumstance is decreed by our fate over which we have no control.
