Down The Aisle Of Fate

________________________________________

Sinéad glides daintily on smooth, piceous paths

On her way to who knows what

In naive bliss, slips to the edge

Unconcerned with the obscure details of destination

Ah, little girl, but now see!

The path has now split

Pray tell, what will you do?

Oh, a decision, inertia! How thrilling…

But options just aren’t offered

To ignorant dolls on assembly lines

So her conveyor belt chooses once more

And she’s boxed up with the others

  1. In-cred-i-ble! You have an amazing talent….many who have written for a lot longer than you’ve been alive would *die* to write this brilliantly. Wow….

    These lines blew me away:

    “But options just aren’t offered

    To ignorant dolls on assembly lines

    So her conveyor belt chooses once more

    And she’s boxed up with the others”

      Thank you! I like the last part, as well. : ) I tried to add an air of futility to what was written before.

        I have been wrestling with the idea of free will. I am not as convinced as I used to be about this. I believe it can very hard to make the correct choices, and that is what spoke to me about your “assembly line”. Thanks

    those last two lines, trims the whole verse with a touch of reality.
