You were happy–I saw it in your eyes
Dreams at your fingertips–unstoppable
Then I saw the flame flicker–extinguished
Snuffed out like a candle by judgement
You never rose again from the ashes
Your hopes and dreams cremated
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
Dom, This one really hit me! Excellent! Phil
Thanks fill, dreams crushed can affect a person for a lifetime, so sad.
Your work is so authentic(overused word but I love it) and touches my heart!
I so glad and thank you for saying so, I very much appreciate it. 🙂
That’s a sad and scary thing to think about. Forgot who said it, but dreams are what makes life worth living.
That was a wise person who said that, much wiser than I.
Oh – how sad…
It is sad when this happens.
They can be very painful indeed.
But some ashes are the most fertile and from them can spring beautiful new dreams.
And I certainly hope they do for those whose dreams have been crushed.
