Fate by Carolyn Wells

Two shall be born the whole world wide apart,

And speak in different tongues, and pay their debts

In different kinds of coin; and give no heed

Each to the other’s being. And know not

That each might suit the other to a T,

If they were but correctly introduced.

And these, unconsciously, shall bend their steps,

Escaping Spaniards and defying war,

Unerringly toward the same trysting-place,

Albeit they know it not. Until at last

They enter the same door, and suddenly

They meet. And ere they’ve seen each other’s face

They fall into each other’s arms, upon

The Broadway cable car – and this is Fate!

Main Idea

This poem refers to a crazy coincidence called fate. Fate can happen in many different way such as winning a game, getting the job, or even becoming ill. However, this poem refers to a way we most recognize fate, and that is meeting your perfect match. This explains how you could live on other sides of the world, speak different languages, pay with different currency, but are the perfect match. You can not have a clue that the other person is your match made in heaven, or even that they exist. If you could meet this person, both of you would fall in love with each other instantly, without questioning it. Once these two people meet you realize that it was fate, a crazy coincidence that was bound to happen.

Why Did I Choose This Poem?

There are a few reason why this poem grabbed my attention. One, because it is something everyone wonders about. Is fate real? People wonder there whole life if they will ever meet the one, the love of theor life, their knight and shining armor. This poem encouages the thought of fat, and assures us that one day our dreams will become reality when were are paired with out perfect match. This poem is also easy to understand. Anyone can read this poem and without having to look up summaries, can tell what the poem is talking about. I also like how this poem ends. When you star reading this poem you already know what the poem is going to be about, which is fate. If someone understands fate the poem is just another story that relates to it, but for thouse who do not know what fate is, it further explains the odd coencidense. The poem ends by saying, "And this is Fate," which really brings th entire poem together in a summary of a single word.

Song lyrics: Lucky by Jason Mraz

Do you hear me, I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy, I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you, I promise you, I will

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Why does this song go with this poem?

This song starts out my saying, "Across the water across the deep blue", which I thought related great to the poem because in the poem it talks about people being made perfect for each other across the world or ocean. This is a love song which fits perfect with a love poem. Their are two people singing throughout the song together about their love for each other. Later on in the song it says, "And so I'm sailing through the sea, to and island where we'll meet", which fits in with the part of the poem that says, "Until suddenly at last they enter the same door and finally meet." I think this song has quite a few similarities and gives a little bit more of understanding about love and fate.

Whats Fate? by Morgan Hartsell

Fate is something

That cannot be changed.

It is predetermined

In every such way.

It can make you laugh,

Or make you cry.

Either way you couldn’t

Change it if you tried.

Fate is strange

In the things that is does.

You might be dead last,

Or number one.

It can make you angry

Or make you smile.

Without fate

Would we go that extra mile?

Fate is a factor

In everyday life.

If you believe it or not

You take its advice.

It can make you lonely

Or find you a mate.

When this happens

Things are perfect and great!

But is that fate,

Or some other doing?

Depending on what you believe,

It is the same result with a different viewing.
