Eternal Defeat

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

Perfect love is ending,
New existence is beginning,
Accept loneliness
And drive on dirty avenues
In search of any girl
Who will smile…

Every heartbeat
Is the tragic rhythm
Of eternal defeat.

When I know I live in a world of flowers and birds
And that the evening will usher in a sky of scattered stars,
When I know hopeful prayers and songs

Misfortunes can be intense
In the hour of sadness,
But even earthquake ravages
Get rebuilt until a skyline
