“Generational divide”


Over the past one hundred years, generational divides are usually a contentious issue within families.

I shall meet my fate?


As I read this prompt several days ago I recognized the word “Yeats” and thought of the Irish/English poet William Butler Yeats and I began to ponder how I shall meet my fate.
