Divine Design by Valerie Parente
There’s no such thing as coincidence
there has to be design
because how can I find the perfect words
that just so happen to rhyme?
You’re telling me poets are just lucky?
That language just so happens to coincide
that there’s rhythm to the psyche
that can be written in artistic lines
that the material world naturally mirrors
the effortless world inside my mind?
No, I don’t believe in luck
I believe in the divine
based on every one of your points
used to describe otherwise.
