Broken Dreams


As i walk through this land of broken dreams
I have a vision of so many things
Feeling the pain of life blows
Helps to compound all my woes
Happiness is just an illusion
Filled with sadness and confusion
All my life i have known fear
And the joy of happiness is something kind of rare
Rules of hate rules the world around
But for me they kind of tumble abound
Everyday heart ache grows much stronger
Pain now last much longer
Each day i labour in pain
Hoping for some few grains to sustain
But deep inside of me
A dead end is what i can see
I walk in shadows searching for light
But darkness is never out of my sight
I've been praying for someone who cares
For everywhere is being surrounded by so many fears
And there i stood with no aim
Waiting for a relief that never came
For so long i have been in a pond of misery
For which i can't help ' CHEW THE SCENERY '
I search though i don't succeed
Somehow am kind of stuck like an unplanted seed
I just keep moving with no direction
And keep believing for a better destination
All things lost and no place for a new beginning
All that's left is unhappy ending
All hope seem to be lost
Even before the finish line have been crossed
Tears of frustration running down my cheek
Salvation i long restoration i see seek
What becomes of a broken hearted
One who it love is now departed
I know i got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
All i need is some kind of resolution that tend
To bring this broken dream to an end.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
