Destinys Defeat

Updated on November 5, 2010


You lay there sleeping

A peaceful slumber

No worries about you

Nothing left to wonder


Years have passed

Mistakes were made

Your perfect score

My failing grade


You opened my eyes

My heart and my mind

A love never known

Never expected to find


My soul wasn’t pure

My heart barely beat

Your standards to high

My destiny – Defeat
