The Defeat - Poem by Chris Schleier, Jr.

Wond'ring where my dreams had gone

I traveled lonely on my way.

Turning neither High or low,

Stopping stop-Going go...

I came to know the bitterness!

Aspirations, venerations

no more linger here...

Flee from me, my destiny

and tarry in defeat...

Knowing not my place in time

I thought in oft 'I will endure...'

Searching purpose here to know,

stopping stop, and going go,

I found myself to wandering...

Aspirations! Venerations!

Enter in my sphere!

Yet, still to flee-my destiny-

does tarry in defeat...

Then, something small I start to feel.

I feel it strong, and then I hear-

From a heart that is not mine,

Heart to heart, and line for line...

'In your 'nothing, ' You are Something! '

Aspirations! Venerations!

O, How sweet and clear!

Stay with me, O, destiny,

and nevermore defeat!

As I traveled on my way

I found my destiny:

Sharing this with humankind

Heart to heart, and line for line:

'He who seeks will surely find! '

Aspirations! Venerations!

No more flee away!

Linger near, and revere

The conq'ring of defeat! .
