Defeat, by Frank Tavares
A warrior goes home.
Unsure if his life is worth the blood that stains his heart.
A lover cries himself to sleep.
Knowing his heart is forever changed.
An artist rips up best work
Feeling his masterpiece unwanted.
A thief stands forever still,
an intoxication filling his body that will take him away forever.
A common man falls with a bang,
finding a courage that few can.
For we are all the same.
One against the world. A world where one can never win.
And so we must all find our way.
Our way to survive what we all must face.
