Writer's Island: Superstition

State of Fate

Fate--
a ripple effect
choices made
serendipity
lemonade

highways travelled
detours taken
battles fought
morals shaken

fences mended
words unspoken
faith shattered
vows broken

loving life
ignoring hate
accepting, forgiving--
the state of fate.

Excellent. I am not a superstitious person, don't know what to make of fate.
