Fate, Fado, Fortune, Kismet

What is in a term or a name,
The end result is your game

With finality, they bid adieus in churches, at the gate
Weeping happily, they declare honey this is your fate
Now always love and obey him as he is your soul mate
Lifelong conditioning precluded questions or stalemate


Love or arranged marriage, when two bodies reside as one
A tug of war ensues before mutual respect n dues are won
To make this bond work requires ingenuity and love, a ton
Hustle bustle harried lives strain n fray new bonds woven


Make or break, your fates are in the palms of your own hands
Lines aside, deft maneuvering of mind’s masterstroke wands
Magically resolves tangled balls of misunderstandings spawned
Salvaging n honoring vows made in good faith with a new dawn


On the other hand, if banked simmering fires of daily tiffs are stroked
Bonfires of eternal vows’ cinders are easily scattered and revoked
Relationships are broken, offspring like bones of contention are yoked
Tug of war between warring spouses make all unhappy as love chokes


Happy folks are divorce lawyers, as they rub their hands in glee
If you are wise, you will attempt to resolve and give in, not flee
Practical horse sense, love of children demand rethinking decree
It is easy to break vows, kill love but much wiser to reclaim it sagely


Make or break fate, fado or kismet
Fate is in no ones hands but your own’
The end result is the real game
Fate, fortuna, fado, kismet-What’s in a name


Human reason needs only to will more strongly than fate, and she is fate.
Thomas Mann German, Writer Quotes

Fate, is an excuse for why we end up where we do! Our ‘Actions’ predetermine our Destiny, our ‘Reactions’ seal that fate!
Carl Stoynoff ,poet/philosopher

Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate… but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins.
Franz Kafka Austrian, Poet Quotes
