Fated

For Brian’s prompt this week about fate vs. free will, I wrote this cherita, also shared with DVerse OLN.



Back in high school I realized: MOOD backwards

Is DOOM — and I found that fitting. Even then.
Buckle up. I loved roller coasters — as long as

They lay outside of me and not inside my mind.
I’ve felt fated to die, finding life difficult,
Yet even on steep, looping tracks keep breathing.
