Wasteland - Poem by jeannetta harris

I am angry, I am sad
Everything I have given up
What I wanted in life
Who I wanted to be
Now nothing is what I see
All my dreams gone
My will broken
Nothing but the shell of my former self
Everything in the name of love
Trust broken like fine China
Love cast aside like dirty linen
Anger and sadness is all I’m feeling
Left to face mountainous problems alone
I was once a beautiful desert oasis
Now nothing but barren wasteland
No longer able to bear fruit
