Divine will, predestination
a soothing comfort I suppose -
easier to accept
than lack of discipline or desire.
Add a shot of free will -
the flavor often changes:
vice over virtue or virtue over vice,
success or failure, stirred or shaken?

This is for "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Challenge "Lets Visit the "word" Family". I pondered the words "Meant to Be" (and equivalent Antonyms and Synonyms) which is part of the title song two of my girls sang tonight from Little Women's "Some Things Are Meant to Be" at their high school Broadway Review. (above is a short excerpt) The older sister (black dress) is going off to college in the fall and this is their last high school performance together. The poem has nothing to do with the song. Little Women is a wonderful book AND musical.
I wish I could have pondered a bit more on this prompt - it's almost midnight and I'm traveling to the mountains tomorrow for the day - we will be moving there in four weeks and it is a busy time and throw in end-of-school activities... My poetry is taking a "hit" as it isn't very good, but I'm trying to keep the creative juices flowing and am very grateful for the prompts offered at "The Imaginary Garden..."
