Destiny's Inevitable Path

Beneath its' murky water's deep
in fathoms far below
lies some who rest in endless sleep
where waves now calmly flow.
It's peaceful and serene now
where ships in battle engaged
the tranquility belies somehow
that once a battle raged.
Somewhere beneath this dark cruel sea
friend and foe lie side by side
all hatred now has ceased to be
for those who fought and died.
A plaque placed at a cenotaph
records the lives they gave
when destiny lead them down this path
to a murky, watery grave.

Norma Suddard

Previously wrote tons of poems. This is only one of so many poems that I couldn't stop writing. I would just imagine in my mind about something or see a piece of broken shard and out came a poem. I have so many, many poems and stories in my books --several binders of poetry, stories and thoughts. I have over 2 large binders of poetry and more than 8 binders on stories I have written. I just see something or think about something and out comes a poem or story. I have also done Ancestry since 2004. My binders take up hugh shelves on both stories and poems. I am in about 10 books of poetry alone never mind the stories. I love to write. Most of my poems are rhymes but there are others that tell a story. Norma J. Suddard more…
