First Line: Since being born's a sin we must atone
Last Line: And all awards are consolation prizes.
Alternate Author Name(s): Cheyney, Ralph
Subject(s): Life


Since being born's a sin we must atone
Each day of all our hours on warrior earth;
Since each must live a lonely life alone
And death holds not one-half the pain of birth;

Since what we hold we lose and goals prove gaols
Or myths, why not prize good in all its guises?
Why seek escape? . . . . Life ever, never fails;
And all awards are consolation prizes.
