I don't believe in destiny

Destiny is fickle: she's a tease and she’s a liar
promise you the world but dull complacency inspire
and worse, destroy your will to choose both liberty and life
trust me, harlot Destiny’s a mistress, not a wife.

So true. It certainly can be.

Just Jen said...

I like that you recorded a reading of it, that was really neat. I'm not a fan of destiny either. :D

I like your both your voices - your reading voice and your writing voice! Lovely post!

Totally loved the tone of voice you adopted to read your poem.

Keith, Paisley, Rob, Jeques, Anthony--thanks for the kind words.

Jen--Yeah, I think the concept of destiny can become a crutch (or an excuse for acting entitled). Tried to say that as succinctly as possible.

Tumblewords--thanks! It's nice to see you again.

Greyscale--Nope, no duplicates. And thanks for your kind comments.

Beloved Dreamer said...

Very well written. As I was on your site I read a few of your poems. I found them to be clever and to the point. As paisley said cool cool cool

Littlewing--I think I've said this commenting on some other post, but I've always thought wisdom is applying knowledge, not just knowing.

Selma--thanks! I love it when I can be succinct (I love to talk, so that doesn't always happen...)

Myrtle, Leigh--good. Doing the audio files was sort of an experiment, but I think I'm going to stick with it.

Jadey, Guatami, Rebecca--thank you!

Rambler--is that "interesting" in a good way?

Ren.kat--why, thank you; I've not been called that in a while!

BD--what a lovely compliment, especially that you would go back and read some of my other things.
