T'was written in the stars......

My fate is written in the stars. Like a rainbow, it comes in different hues. We did not plan what we might become but it is God's omniscient knowledge that did plan it all. At times we may question Him, but who are we to question His omnipotence?

Your fate is not my fate. You may be lucky while I am unfortunate. Or it may be the other way around. Whatever it is, we cannot question God. 

Some say it is us who make our future. Others say it is etched in our palms. Still others believe that it has something to do with our astrological or birth signs. What one believes is what one is guided with.

Undoubtedly, everyone wants a Utopian life, a bed of roses. But even a rose has thorns. The thorns are the spices in life. For every accidental prick, it may make us better or make us worse

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. These are the colors that make the rainbow beautiful. These also represent the colors in our life. Our basic instinct is to want a happy life, in bright yellow. We desire sunshine and total bliss, free from worries and wants.

Violet remains a sad color, we often wish not to have it. But through the years, the meaning of this color has metamorphosed. This color now represents women empowerment. But I am happy at the wonderful transformation of the new world that was male-dominated for a long time. Women are now equal to men in the workplace and in every sphere.

If I could only choose the right star that would reflect the color of the fate I want, I want a green and blue life. I want it green for green is life. It signifies growth, renewal, health and environment. For every violet interlude in my life, I want green to overcome it.

Vanity and all profaneness threaten my existence. I never wished a life of unhappiness and failures. For every moment that I am down, I want some blue in my life. I love its calming effect and soft attributes. It gives me peace of mind after a trying moment that tested my patience and kindness.

After all, we only crave for the good things in life. But there's no perfect life. And there's no perfect color in life. Combine some colors and what comes out is a beautiful rainbow. For life to be perfect, happy and well-lived, it must be rainbow-colored.

Like all others, I wish a beautiful rainbow in my life. And what’s in a rainbow? It makes us a hopeless romantic, a lover, a dreamer. Because we believe that our wish may come true when we see a rainbow in the sky. There’s also a promise that at the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold. And my life's a rainbow, in beautiful, colorful hues. God is the wonderful artist and for every stroke of His brush is a unique creation.

World is in chaos
Overtly suffering so much
Rising prices of commodities
Lesser supply, larger demand
Depression is beyond control

Excessive is money supply
Causing prices to soar
Our government must act
Now to banish hunger
On arresting economic plunge
Must relentlessly work to
Yield jobs for poor

My life’s a rainbow
Yes, in different hues

Some moments are sunshine
Utterly happy and jovial
Rainy, cloudy oft times
Vicious on many occasions
Immersing in uncontrollable tears
Vying for peace and quiet
Always wishing for everlasting
Love, care and attention

It maybe an assault
Neglect to poor people
Harm to the vulnerable
Unscrupulous acts of abusers
Maligning of innocent victims
And may go endless
No sane people want
It impairs our souls
Tells such intimidating tales
You truly would loathe

Catastrophic is man's invention
Headed to barbaric use
Eventually bringing final destruction
Mad men letting gases
Instantly killing in thousands
Conscience, theirs is dead
Annihilation is their aim
Life is at stake

We should be vigilant
Alert to prevent devastation
Reach, create an advocacy
For abjuring toxic chemicals
Aiming for eternal safety
Renouncing this evil mode
Every nation must agree

Trick or treat
Everyone likes it
Comes in bundle
Harnessing men's ingenuity
Noble are intentions
Of making everyone's
Life much easier
Old and young
Great and small
You are one

He was snatched
Unkindly, harshly treated
Mauled agonizingly endless
Asking, begging release
Nobody heard him

Torturers are beasts
On the prowl
Ruthlessly they relish
The beatings given
Until poor victim
Rendered to silence
Ends in death

Subdued they look
Ulterior motive hidden
In misleading demeanors
Craving for extermination
Instant mass slaughter
Dying they thought
Ennobles true heroism

But they're indoctrinated
On false dogmas
Making them sacrifice
Both family, happiness
Even forsaking life
Resenting world order
Seeking total annihilation

Paid by government fairly
On services that will
Look after people's welfare
It's but disheartening, they're
Culprits of social unrest
Evils and multifarious brutalities

Beastly they have become
Ruthless and very abusive
Using their guns recklessly
Trying to threaten innocent
And helpless, poor victims
Like they are demigods
Insidiously clad in uniforms
To project deceptive power
You truly would despise

Diminishing family values
Onerous life situations
Molesting mothers, children
Extinguishing family's happiness
Such sordid state
Threatening and disturbing
Immediate help needed
Compassion and kindness

Vile are culprits
Incarceration they deserve
Over aggressions committed
Lest they continue
Ensnaring innocent victims
Nefariously threatening them
Cursed be them
Every crime done

Close to almost death
He suffered bruises, pains
In parents' cruel hands
Leading to trauma forever
Destroying his self-worth

And his normal growth
Blighting his bright future
Until he becomes a
Social and family problem
Enslaved by lifetime fear

Speak thou my heart
Ponder upon thy feelings

Express in thine way
All thou mayest wish
Knowing it givest bliss
Incomprehensible and beyond compare
Nay, be brave enough
Gladly lovest thou him

Oh for a lifetime
Unceasing be thine happiness
Truly intoxicating and magical

I believe in you

What you told me
Are true and encouraging
Now it's my promise
That I will survive

Till God calls me
Out there in heaven

Let me enjoy life
In the arms of
Very caring, loving family
Ever true, honest friends!
