601 The Defeat [21 March 2004]

Once again my soul reveled in confidence.
At one time did it sing,
whispering its message
to those who heard.

The song will come no more,
I will try to forget it.
For what other course
do I have to choose from?

I allowed Hope to flourish,
Fate closed the cage door,
sealing all inside
never again revealed or known.
