New dreams need to be created
when the old ones only create pain;
unrealized, they fester in my soul,
a black cloud covering my light.
Need to record a new message in my heart,
new hopes and daydreams,
to cover the failings replaying in my head;
over and over, constant reminders
and endless what-if’s.
New hopes, new goals
busying my mind, striving for new heights.
Can never wash away past hurts,
sadness and heartbreak will always mar my heart,
but hopeful that new dreams will bring healing –
make it function and thrive again.
