Boulevard Of Broken Dreams


my life is a boulevard
i am a piece of broken dreams

my life is a bough
i am a piece of shredded leaves

my life is a road
i am a crossroad of chaos

my life is a space
i am a void of evil thoughts

my life is a waste
i am a face of an unwanted child

my life is a test
i am a failure


my life is a root
i am a debris of broken dreams

my life is a shoot
i am rising against interred nightmares

    barbara...

    thank you for your kind and thoughtful words.
    the poem sounds like millions of us on the face
    of this world - irrespective of the race, space or face.
    we breathe the same air and share almost the same fear.

    fulgencio, thanks too! (Report) Reply

    OMG Beibee, this sounds just like me. I am all of this and more. I am a floor, being trampled to death. You may be in Nigeria, Beibee, but your poem spans the world, and many throughouut the world can identify. I am in America, and this sent shivers down my back becasue it is so much me, it is scary. You have written this like it is for a lot of people. Thank you for sharing, you write very well and from the soul.

    Hugs,

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
