PERSONAL EXPLICATIONSI chose these poems about destiny because they reminded meof my writing style.Rarely any rhyming but sending a message about who you are.I appreciate these poems because not only do they send amessage that the writer wishes to get across, but they alsoinject personal afflictions into them as well. For example. In“My Destiny”, The author writes about wanting to leaveAfrica and prove herself to the world.And in the last poem, “Destiny”, The author writes about hisfeelings toward a woman that he cares deeply for and hasgreat affection towards. You can tell just by reading thepoem that he loves her greatly.
PERSONAL EXPLICATIONSIn the poem “Fate and Destiny” The author talks about Thedifferent yet similar topics of fate and destiny he quotes afew times throughout the poem. “Fate, Destiny, are they thesame?” The poem seems to express his concern for theoutcome of his life as well as the outcome for others, andwhat they intend to do to change their destiny to what theywant it to be and what they intend to do to stop the fatethat await them.In the first poem titled “Destiny”. The writer asks if Destiny isworth the time and if destiny is a friend. The writer seemsunsure as to what his/her destiny is in life and wonders if itis anything worth-while. The author is also confused itseems, Confused as to why his/her destiny is hiding.
PERSONAL EXPLICATIONSThe poem “Unmistaken Destiny” is aboutsomeone who had a dream that they had foundtheir destiny, and they go out to search for itThe writers seems to see things for what theyreally are, and seems to see the unoriginality inthe world today. The writers uses a uniquewriting style that really helps get the pointacross that everything has been done andeverything has been spoken.
DESTINYHello, What? Where?I did not hearThe sound that echoes through these hallsWhat was that?You fear the end, the clock ticking downTicking away our very souls till we vaporI do not understandWhy? Why end this already shamed worldProsperityI believe in rejuvenating the world to prosperBeliefsNothing but empty promises and empty thoughtsReligionForce feeding brain washing the massesWith images of a higher powerDestinyThis is mine to control, mine to figure outWhat is destiny?
A BITTER HEARTA burning sensation deep in my heartForbid me to see you right from the startYour love and your passion then drove me insWhile the lover inside me grew further in vainHigher and higher the flame in me grewWhile the fire inside you out the wind blewAway you went and left me aloneTo ponder outside and freeze to the bone
THE HAND For reasons I look for reasons I stareFor reasons I can no longer seeWhile search I do for my destinyThere is no stopping us, weWe the children, we the peopleWe stand together and we stand proudWe stand forever and shout it outFate’s hand will take your lifeBut only you can decide your own destiny.
BELITTLEMENT Belittle me belittle my esteemBelittle what I am belittle my dreamsBelittle my heart belittle my mindBut belittle not what I have plannedDestiny is mine and mine aloneI control it with plans to take controlControl is what I desire mostDestiny, Divines, and an arrogant boast
POLITICAL DAMNATIONI hear them, the words they so solemnly speak.I see them, making the rules we are forced to follow.I feel them, The heaviness I receive on my shoulders at aglance.Those who control me those who command me, with theirwordsI have nothing, they have it all.They have the power and the rule over me; they have thepower to do away with me.Who are they?They are what stop the chaos that awaits, while still causingchaos.
POLITICAL DAMNATION 2They take away ones pain while inflicting pain to another.They are the very reason we over protect and under achieve.Yet, we still serve them, we still live to please them.We are the brainwashed masses that thrive by appealing tothem.Them, they are the reason for our hardship and oursuffering.They do nothing to help and everything to avoid.We, we as the hero’s and the people suffer through it all.
POLITICAL DAMNATION 3While the fat cats sit back in their chairs and play us likemonopoly.I refuse; refuse to be played like a pawn in their game.Life is treated like chess, you are forced to play until everypiece is gone.Every piece of you is gone, Why do we go on?We go on because we are told riches await us.We go on because they tell us we want to.I go on for the hopes of one day finding life.Finding something worth living through this for, outside ofthis political damnation
