God of Fate



Is it fate? Or God?
Or are they one in the same
Bonded together

Does fate dismiss God?
Agnostic dreams of chaos
Logic in order

Does God dismiss fate?
Faithful to human teaching
Divine creations

Is it God? Or fate?
Guiding the journey of life
Eternal questions

Did God create man?
Sentient design could, or
Did man create God?

About this poem

5 consecutive Senryu. Choka. Inspired by the search for why things happen. Specifically the girl shot in the dressing room in California by a stray bullet. Is it fate when we don't want to blame it on god?
