Thursday 8/12/10 - "FORETOLD" - A Theme Thursday (palm)




THEME THURSDAY
(palm)


"FORETOLD"


I met a woman in the islands far away
She's the only who's ever read my palm
She held my hand under the palms that sway
I allowed her this intrusion with no qualm

She foretold that one day I would die
As a plane goes down and I'm inside
I wondered if this might be a lie
And I could set the prediction aside

Many years later I had a dream
Screaming metal heralded my death
Within that plane there was no scream
I felt nothing as I drew last breath

My conscious mind remained intact
As I stood up from the mangled wreck
I wondered how I should react
As I began my new celestial trek

Prayer Girl

Amazing experience -- and you're still hear to talk about it. Good cadence, a rhyme scheme that doesn't seem forced.
