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!
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...
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! '
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! '
No more flee away!
Linger near, and revere
The conq'ring of defeat! .
