Fate

Fate creeps upon us all
It spies and it sees
who knows what secrets it has beheld
the ones it will reveal
and the ones that it will hold
What power, what pleasures does it seek
a voyeur upon lovers meant to be
a vigilante, wielding callous justice
carrying vengeance from pasts long forgotten and lostOh! cruel kind fate
Are you evil or benign
like a storm upon the horizon
with promise of healing
and threat of destruction
Your guillotine hangs over the wicked
your hope dangles before us all


Do you believe in fate? that concept of karma? of reap what you sow? Or do you believe the universe plays by its own rules- A random giver and a random taker. I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this.

    I believe in sowing and reaping but at the same time I think only through error does a man grow and mature. So someone sowing weeds, usually without knowing, and expecting corn get what he/she deserves in more ways than one.

      This makes alot of sense, thank you for sharing this with me. My only doubt comes when horrible things happen to very good people 😌

      Yeah but every now and then inexplicable things can happen, good or bad. I believe karma is there but I think there’s another force that can overrule it

        The mystery is what rules that force plays by

      3. Yeah, like does that follow an underlying cycle of karma or it’s completely different? I’ve always believed in some great power though. Something that has kept everything at bay.

        Maybe it’s the struggle between good and bad karma

    Yes, we do believe in karma, but cannot imagine what we have done to warrant this latest crisis. Or what we must do, to try and put things right, for that matter…

      Probably mother nature’s karma😓 but does good karma cancel out bad karma? I’ve always wondered

    I used to believe in karma. But politics has erased that–there seem to be no just desserts for our “leaders”. Still, I believe our own acts and intentions make a difference. (K)

    Jude, firstly your poem is exquisite.
    As for what I believe, every action and thought has a corresponding action and thought in return. I don’t like labels so for want of a better explanation, our planet is a huge classroom. Those lessons we came here to learn, [hopefully] we learn. Those things that seem to kick the rug out from under us, some say that is karma or fate. My take on it is whatever we came here to learn plus what energy we emanate and give, those are the very things we attract to us.
    And then there are those situations that no matter how hard we try to understand as to why, they just seem to happen. As has happened to me many times, at the time of that occurrence, I don’t understand. It’s usually years later that the light bulb goes off.
    This is a huge and complex subject. For those of us who are thinkers, we could go on and on about this. Lastly, when blessings do fall, it is because of our own inner work and cleaning up of our lives. We make room for those very things we richly deserve but beforehand had blocked with our own misguided ways and thoughts. See? I just can’t seem to stop. LOL

    Beautiful poem, Jude. We, being responsible for our actions( good or bad) get the just desserts sooner or later. This is what I believe in.

        Yup, that’s definitely there. We don’t have answers to a lot many questions.

  8. I really love this one, Jude. I don’t believe in fate. Man as a collective controls the lives of everyone else.

      Yes, true but there are a few inexplicable gaps in this theory
