Among the Broken Dreams

Dreams are like shadows
It is another representation of us
Dreams are like wings
Allowing us to soar through the hardships of life
Dreams are like hearts
Because without it our lives will go dull
But life isn't as nurturing as we might like it to be
It can be as catastrophic as an earthquake
As rapid as tornado
As powerful as ocean
So in front of life our dreams shatter like glass
More we live more of our dreams get shattered
Some might claim that their dreams were lost
Some might even say that their dreams were taken
False, our dreams have never been lost or taken
We merely gave up one dream to acquire another dream
Or gave up one dream to continue dreaming
Among the broken dreams another dream do rise

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
