A Poem on the Website of
the Red Dirt Writers Society

by D. J. Russell (Sep 2009)

There comes a moment
In each life
When you realize what Destiny
Holds for you.
It is a lightning bolt through the brain,
A seizure of insight
Which straightens both the soul
And body.
No one can escape its tantalizing touch,
Neither king nor fireman,
Nor prophet nor beggar.
That glimpse
Into whom you are supposed to be
Can be earth-shattering,
Heartbreaking, and
Whatever it might be,
It will always and forever
Be you.
