Before I start, I wanted to share this blog post, a list of the 27 best books on writing! Hope it helps some of you. Have you read any of the books or do you own any of them?
Today’s prompt is “Sweet Serendipty” by Lee DeWyze.
“Sweet Serendipty” – Lee DeWyze
I’m not of those women who will assure you,
You can get by, by the skin of your teeth.
That life is simply chance, fortuitous.
I think you’re inexperienced,
You don’t see the entire picture,
Each of us is a piece in the mosaic, the grand design.
Perhaps since your famous, you’ll buy two pairs of jeans?
But not caring about the seams of your pants,
Them being too loose — it’s a guy thing.
Sorry to ruin your charade, life is more than —
Your own version of serendipity,
Events that occur to us can be wickedly sad.
Whether we learn and/or hurt — there’s a reason,
An intelligent designer has time arranged,
I don’t worry, for different reasons — His plans give security,
If you land on your feet, you’re one lucky guy.
I guess the fates are angry, their scissors keep snapping.
To me its obtuse to believe blindly in chance.
There are times I believe in spontaneity,
But there’s a time and a place with —
A kind of reasoning called: calculated risks.
I’m unsure why you don’t think ahead (don’t play chess).
I’m not old but I think I’ve experiences you won’t,
Be carefree at heart, but realize —adult responsibility.
You’re blessed with your health, go where you want,
I think, there’s been few troubles to scar you.
You sing empty songs, I find little depth,
Serendipity isn’t chance, it’s a miracle unfurled.
Behind the scenes action, you haven’t foreseen.
Glad you’re fine, but you’re missing a few screws.
It’s not that I’m bitter; it’s not that I don’t see,
What your trying to say in your round about way.
I’m saying that life, I’ve learned, is never a fluke,
We have minds to think and consider — to use.
Despite ineptness, your kind heart shows true,
Next hit song —think your lyrics thoroughly through.
