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 hurt,
sadness and heart break will always mar my heart,
but hopeful that new dreams will bring healing
make it function and thrive again.
