Longer Seasons

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

This life is a flickering candle
unable to be sustained in a gentle breeze
or a golden sunset too perfect
to ever be witnessed anew.

Sometimes you fall in love
during the happiness of early youth
to never marry her
because of death or some other tragedy
impossible to escape.

Loneliness is a dark and foreboding landscape
that no artist would ever choose to paint
but for which we are often forced to traverse
for longer seasons than we could ever have contemplated.

A Different Sky Is Waiting

We’ve been in the rain so long
That our eyes are sore and red;
When joy is missing,
We gaze down too long at our feet

A Stranded Girl On A Friday Night

She was weeping when we met
Outside a party store
Where the lonely purchase their wine;
Her boyfriend had left her behind

Sitting quietly in the broken sunlight
Of hopeful but fleeting romance.

Bob Dylan heard the voice
Of a poet who died in the gutter;
That dying voice
Then seeped into his soul

Beauty Of Life

I don’t desire to wear a sad face too long
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

Healing Endurance

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