Broken Dreams 'a Divorce Story' Poem by Craig Mize

Broken Dreams 'a Divorce Story'

Rating: 3.8

So many dreams, so many goals, so much potential.
I was suppose to be great, I was suppose to be a success,
I was suppose to something. I was brought up to be a strong man.
These simple problems was not suppose to phase me.
But now every little problem put a little bit of the worlds pressure on
me. I worked hard at everything that I have done. I have put my time,
blood, sweat, & tears into everything good in my life. But in a blink of
an eye everything I worked for was taken away from me. All that it
took was for you my wife of 12 years, the person that said that she
would love me forever, the very woman that told me 'I do.' Decided
that she wasn't in love with me anymore. She took the house, the couch & chairs, the cars, the kids, all of my money, & even the dog.
She left me a broken man, lost with no sense of direction. I was suppose to be better than this. I am suppose to be better than this.
How could I allow one person to hurt me like this, to break me like this?
I was a man with so many goals, so many dreams, so much potential.
Now I'm a man just looking for a way to survive day to day

Such a terrible, terrible thing when you give complete faith and trust, all your love and all your heart to another and they reject you. (((hug))))

so bad that she had managed to retrieve everything from him and this definitely shows how much he 'contributed' to the home, wife, children and household.. My friend VC had authored a book how to survive after divorce and I think that this persona may need one.. Congratulations Craig Miza, Good Imagination..

This pain is like losing a love one that words cannot describe. It really is like death. But most times we look back and see how much stronger we are and what we have learnt from this pain. I feel the agony is this write and I hope you have now moved on and enjoying each day.

Putting all your eggs in one basket The same old elemental mistake We are much more than love lost in its casket With will power we can turn and our life remake............ Good poem Sir, but I refuse to believe that every thing about us that brings inner happiness can be mortgaged to a another human being. I welcome you to my page too

A poem in which the poet has put his heart and soul is sure to agitate the reader's mind. So much pain and so much suffering in life can make a man lifeless. The typing mistakes can be understood.
