Fate and Free Will

by francis scudellari and nooshin azadi

All plain words by francis scudellari

All italic words by nooshin azadi






you are all alone when you hear a voice
a voice in you tells you to commence a journey
a journey starts along a long long path
a path that takes you to an unknown place
a place where your path intersects with a line
a line on the palm of a hand
a hand that belongs to you


Love came, and she didn’t
ask me to stake it,
the imbalance. I had
mistaken not choosing
for the choice, unwilling
to chance it and be
cheated by the distance.

I’m compelled to take a hand offered so tenderly, willing me

perchance chosen as my fate and freely fated as my choice
The nimble tongues of my unaccounted decisions speak me a destination
a destiny i will distance from with each decided step







included in the book "meeting through the wall" , available from lulu
