Trail Of Tears - Poem by Jacqueline Stinson

On the pathways of
love inside the heart
dreams can die out and
tear it all apart.
Our aborted dreams
come from fallouts of
broken promises.
undervalued love.
In the heart's garden
of Gethsemane
we shed our tears and
cope with agony...
Broken dreams remain
on the trail of tears
unless Hope lifts us
and transforms our fears--
The trail of tears is
taken to release
the heart of its pains
to find inner peace.
