    Your beauty and your sweetness shines forth with each wistful lyric dear poet who is all the more magical for being a prince who only feels too keenly to think of himself as anything but a frog. It's the affliction of the creative.

    Uriah was a VG writer at age 11 from what I recall and has grown continually too this day.
    Glad to have had the pleasure of knowing such a quality person.
    He used to play guitar as well btw(SG) .

    Uriah, you are writing as well as ever, if a bit sadly. Fondly, Jerry

    Uriah, I have been reading some of your verse. You have such a unique voice, your sensibility is original with flashes of brilliance.

    amazing barely begins to describe you. if you hadn't sent me that message, i would've never read your intoxicating words...now i'm addicted to your poetry...and i have about 250 more to read, so i guess i'll get that fix after all. :)
    oh, by the way, three or four of your masterpieces have magically appeared in my fav's list...mufufufufufuuu *evil laughter* you can read some of my stuff and see how bad it is compared to yours...

    see you around,
    eni da kid

    A portrait of Mr. Hamilton is worth ten U.S. dollars. Cumulatively, you may consider his word-portraits as approximately: priceless.

    Uriah,
    You have a resplendent spirit. Your beauty blinds us - illuminating the far reaches of our tortured souls to reveal the hope that cautiously lingers there.

    I've come to admire you as a poet and love you as a person. You have affected me in ways words cannot express, and this old heart will never be the same. I am honored and humbled to call you my friend.

    With much love and respect,
    Shannon

Best Poem of Uriah Hamilton

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
As we slowly walk through the city,
But there must be a different sky waiting
Offering love and inspiration.

Beneath these yellow factory skies,
Even the street lights look sadly dim,
Like our spiritual light within
Blurred by an affectionless life.

Things began to change
When I met you in a small bar
Not far from the school where you teach;
I saw Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass
Easing out of your purse,
I knew we ...

To A Sad Girl

There is no way to explain
Unending sorrow and grief,
No way to kiss a young girl’s cheek
In a way that would give her back
The joy death has stolen.

Humans are brave enough
To live and bleed and die,
But to be the one remaining
