Simple Twist of Fate

Sitting in his room staring out the
window, remembering the good
times his wife and he used to have-
now he's a widow, alone and old,
dying of sadness...he blames GOD,
for his 'simple twist of fate.'

//

She's only thirteen- entering her
teenage years in full bloom, trying
to hide her bundle of joy knowing
her folks won't be pleased...scared
to be teased and called a bitch...
succumb to temptation now she
realizes her actions resulted in her
'simple twist of fate.'

//

The first time I met her was the last
time I saw her- her smile imprinted
in my mind, yet it couldn't hide the
pain inside...A mother to a beautiful
daughter- wife to a monster that
became her burden, the reason for
her 'simple twist of fate.'

//

Here I stand before you full of grace;
nevertheless, my strife to get here
has been rough- tough on the mind
but I've manage to get by...reactions
are set by actions, never question
the reason for our
'simple twist of fate.'
