Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Landfill
 
There must be a place for broken dreams--
a landfill of harrowed hearts, cried-out eyes.
A place of forsaken hopes, failed esteems
that evolves with each generation's rise.

There must be a place for broken dreams--
for vows revoked, loves lost, trusts betrayed.
It serves well when life strains at the seams,
and the margins of our emotions are frayed.

There must be a place for broken dreams--
where wished-for wealth is beyond the pale.
When 'perfect' plans are empty schemes,
we need a place of refuge in which to dwell.

There must be a place for broken dreams--
for shedding garments of grief, hurt, and pain
thus granting ourselves relief that redeems
the self-struck need to take all the blame.
