A Shattered Soul

Rating: 4.8
I made the ultimate sacrifice.

I left with no where to go.

All I have left are diluted dreams and material acquisitions.

My belongings represent a closed chapter of my life.

Shards of my love lay scattered around our world.

Half truths shattered my belief.

Our crops failed to flourish on barren land.

I was left to bleed new life into our land.

I must dig deep to carry on.

This brings to mind of the Native Americans being forced off their lands to reservations - A sad painful moment in history that continues to this day...... Excellent work!

Your point of reference is interesting. A break up is a break up after all.

Good write, Jeremy. Emotional to the feel of the 'shattered' self. But I am glad you will rise up after the fall: 'I must dig deep to carry on.'

Good write, Jeremy. Emotional to the 'shattered' self. Yet, I am glad you will rise up after the fall: 'I must dig deep to carry on.'
