Preordained by Brenda-Lee Ranta


Silent ruminations, contingency plans,

speculative measures, calculated risks,

preemptive strikes, beseeching results


None of this transpired, never meant to follow a

carefully logged itinerary of scheduled events.

Best laid plans get foiled, no assurances given


Silly woman, were you unaware that things have

preordinance, an unfolding that is completely beyond

your control; deemed for a designated time?


Be it fated, be it ill-fated, speak your intentions to

the universe, release all attachment to that which

was decreed long before the advent of time.


For every profound experience meant to

change a life.  a path. a credence.  Will surely

be that of the divine; not a second before.
