Ode To Woe

Ode To Woe


Fate is such a fickle thing
Cares not one whit for man
Hopes but stones in Nature's sling
To shatter best laid plan

A swirling murmuration of Starlings
Makes as much sense as fate
And powerless are the greatest kings
In Kismet's capricious wake

I tried to love with all my might
But Fate and Kismet said "Never! "
My soul has flown into the night
And my heart is broken
…forever…
