Preface

Destiny is a very strange and mysterious thing in our lives and most of the people believe that it is fixed and we can not change or shape it. It could be true or not, no one knows it. On the other hand some people do not believe in destiny and work hard to achieve their goals in life. Some of them succeed while others do not. So there is a mix of everything everywhere and this poem is the outcome of the thoughts of those people who do not believe in destiny but continue their hard work and efforts in their lives.

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”

― William Shakespeare

I defeated my destiny

You can't win with me,
The destiny whispered in my ears.
I retorted in same way,
Controlling all my fears.

I am much powerful,
She told in a devlish tone.
You can only try hard,
But result is in my zone.

I give you a chance my boy,
Pray me and respect me.
I would find a way out,
All would be good to thee.

I was not convinced,
With her assertiveness.
I left her for good and,
Did my work in righteousness.

I never saw her again,
Meedling in my matters.
I defeated my destiny,
All that what matters.

Endnote

Some people do not bother and do not believe in the concept of destiny and do their efforts in life relentlessly to meet the objectives. They only consider the circumstances and situations in their lives which are supposed to be responsible for their successes or failures.

      I think my destiny is the path I'm set on that I cannot control, like where I was born or what color my skin was. But what I do with that path once I am on it is up to me. I have ambitions and goals that I control. Or I'm delusional. Whatever.

      Blessings,

      Denise

      Destiny is the runaway train and we hold on for the ride. Some will attempt to not get on board, yet she finds him at the next station.

      Very thought-provoking poem.

      While God is all-knowing, we have the gift of free will. Destiny, in that regard, is similar to a moving piece of a puzzle. We can play it for better or worse.

      Destiny has been drawn out for each and every one of us, we need to roll with whatever we face knowing that we spiritually have the higher power to stand with us

      I think we all have a hand in our own destiny.

      We can either accept the cards we have been dealt or venture for the ones we want.

      So glad you are happy defeating yours.

      May life treat you well.

      Thanks for sharing.

      A positive message, especially now, during troubled times. I am glad you defeated destiny. We have more opportunity than we know. It's up to the individual to have faith that our circumstances can and will change if we need them to.

      A wonderful poem. I enjoyed it very much.

      The logical side of me likes to think we do create our own destiny, however, the spiritual side believes that my destiny is already preordained. Perhaps the truth is somewhere in the middle. I enjoyed this thought provoking poem Umesh - beautifully written.

      I learned a new quote about destiny about a year ago, after watching Baahubaali. "When a man uses faith as a weapon even destiny, with reverence, admits defeat". I think that may fit well with your poem?

      I Like Chinese Movies. There is a very beautiful one called Man of Destiny. In the series, he is constantly fighting against destiny. I think he succeeded but my memory is vacant ... there was some sadness towards the end.

      You can bring it up easily on google. It's Chinese and I like the ones with episodes. Much better and they take about two days or more to see.

      That is the right approach. We should always do our duty, surrendering our efforts to God. To work we are entitled, but not to the results thereof.

      There is Karma, but that is actually a complex thing to understand. But Grace from a Spiritual Master or directly from God Itself, always have the last word. Finally, action of itself has no power, what matters in action, is a live, vibrant awareness of the power of Spirit.

      You poem is actually very beautiful and the first stanza is amazing! With a small touch and a deeper awareness of rhythm, you can make it even better! But as it is, it is still awesome!

      Flourish, you are correct. Destiny is one of those strange and uncanny things in our lives. Thanks for your nice note and of course for sparing your time.

      Yes, it is a constant debate as to whether destiny, karma, kismet, whatever you like to call it is a real entity or not. I think the best we can do is to try hard at everything and hope for the best outcome. Good poem Umesh.

      I like that you always put a short endnote about the poem that describes it further or connects it in some way to your life. I believe that some things are just too uncanny. Destiny I guess!
