How Things Are Meant To Be


How Things Are Meant To Be

Infertile Jennifer weeps
as she sits in a waiting
room. The frightened
lady beside her came to
abort her unborn child.

We cherish the lover we
can’t have. And we miss
the soul mate we never
appreciated. Our dreams
become our nightmares.

Reality hurts so much. We
lie to ourselves to ease our
pain. In the end we force
ourselves to accept that’s
how things are meant to be.

  1. This holds truth and yet, not so much hope. The fact we accept our fates, instead of questioning and trying to fix things is rather perplexing. You wrote an excellent poem presenting some of life’s quandaries in a vivid manner, Drew.

  3. Our destinies to a large extent lies in our hands and what we put into it is what we get out of it. What I tell people is that it’s never too late to be happy and start again except when one is dead. Old dreams may not be regained, but we can make new ones instead of living in regret. Beautiful, soul-searching poem.
