About “Destiny for a Tragedy”:
Youth is just a distraction. Time is non-existent. Everything is questionable. Everything is lost. These are the basic thoughts that penetrate through the heels of “Destiny for a Tragedy.” A collection of poems, prose, songs, mistakes, regrets, boredom, and persistence, “Destiny for a Tragedy,” funded solely by Scaccia’s wallet, tells of a tale of a young girl racing through the red lights of youth, side-stepping wilted lovers, estranged fathers, distorted friends and self-destruction in the form of one-liner notes and tangents. Split into five different chapters, “Destiny for a Tragedy” takes you down a road of tragic love, brewing hate, silent observation, frustration, cultural activism and political disgust. From words praising the perfect man to the memory of a murdered friend, “Destiny for a Tragedy” recounts the days of being in love, depression, loneliness, and youth, all while trying to find one’s self. Scaccia tosses together phrases and metaphors that enunciate what it means to be a teenager and what it is like growing up, stepping away from it all. With an epilogue to explain how she is now, content and ready to move on, “Destiny for a Tragedy” is a sensitive and provocative reflection of change.
