Destiny by Adaobi Rachel

Each face, a story
Different destiny
You are picture within pictures
Intertwined in your neighbors character
Your brother’s response.

Your story is what you know
Could have known
What you saw
Could have seen, perceived
Where your leg went to
What took you there, how, why
What your hand touched, where, when

Each face, a story
My market is not your items bought
Your sales is not on my list
Learn, think, watch
Fight your own battle.
