Broken Dreams -From that first moment in time that we can form our own thoughts – we start to dream of better things for our future. Living life to the fullest is all about the quest to follow our hearts desires and dreams of what will be.
Some of us in this human condition only think that our lives are accomplished if we set out and achieve whatever dreams you have dangled in front of yourself like the proverbial “carrot on a stick.”
The truth of the matter is that more likely than not you will fall short of achieving that much sought after dream. For whatever reason – be it your fault or simply fate we fall short of completing and achieving them – and your dream becomes shattered and broken.
I would like to suggest to you – the reader – that dreams are made to be broken. Living life to the end of our existence is not about achieving those dreams. If you do, the world is yours, but if you don’t the world still is yours. The key is not the end result of those dreams, but the quest and everything in between is what life is all about. So when a dream becomes broken – do not despair – find another and dream again.
Down through my life cemented in my past,
Broken dreams scattered, pieces of shattered glass.
Some dreams were never truly meant to be,
Some broken dreams were meant to set me free.
Cannot break me, a lifetime of broken dreams,
I am willing and stronger than most or so it seems.
From my past – broken dreams that cannot break me,
Not jaded, and daring to dream again is the key.
My broken dreams are not the end of the road,
For another dream comes along – waiting to be saddled and rode.
Broken dreams can mean life has a new direction,
For a new acquired dream for my reflection.
