NaPoWriMo21 Day 18: Choosing the Inevitable

A poem that a chaotic life is a feature of free will and pushes back against the notion that our lives are fated to a certain path.

NaPoWriMo21 Day 18 - Choosing the Inevitable

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt challenged me to write a poem based on a chapter title from a favorite book. I choose a chapter from the book What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly titled: Choosing the Inevitable. I wrote a poem that a chaotic life is a feature of free will and pushes back against the notion that our lives are fated to a certain path.

Choosing the Inevitable

A fate set is a life controlled.

Destiny creates blinders to other options.

Are all locked rooms truly inescapable?

Is not everything that is required also have a waiver?

Not even the weather is certain.

Choosing the inevitable path is not a choice.

It is the default prescribed by power.

Rejoice!

Free will springs from natural providence.

Fate, destiny, inevitability — these are all compulsory.

Escape the room.

Find the waiver.

Walk in the rain.

Your life is not controlled.

Life IS chaos.

Beautiful, beautiful chaos.
