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.
