What do you do when your hopes and dreams go crashing to the ground?
When there's no one to turn to,
You're lost and feel like you can't be found.

When the people you care about the most seem to disapear,
The ones who knew your hopes, dreams,
And even your biggest fears.

When you think there's no one there to love you,
And think about you, miss you,
Or even care what you do.

When your life seems to be going down the drain,
There's no one left,
And you want to end all the pain.

Don't throw your life away,
There's always someone who cares,
And there's a new adventure everyday.

Pick yourself up, start over again,
Find new people to love, new places to go,
Learn from the bad, and from where you've been.

It's always worth it no matter what it seems,
So love who you are and who you'll become,
And as always, follow your hopes and dreams.

This was a poem I wrote about prior things that happened to me...I know it helped me, and I hope that it's inspirational to you guys to.  Tell me what you think.

 "Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do."

Ah, yes the unforgiving harshness of reality,

It's so nice to get a poem in here that not depressing (well, as depressing...).  Geez, anyone looking at this forum might as well conclude that all we are is a bunch of overly depressed teenagers that come here to vent through the creative beauty of poetry...wait, damn!  

All ranting aside, i really like you poem, i think we all need to be reminded that if something goes wrong, just dust yourself off, grit your teeth, and try again.

This is a beautiful-hope filled poem! It really gave me a lift!

Just echoing Lovebugs thoughts!!


 "The worst of what people do to one another is deceive.
Because when you love someone you control their version
of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them
autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact,
not their true situation at all."

It's not the angry words that break the heart, it's the silence.

Someone said that true love is like a ghost -- often spoke of but never seen.
I've seen both and yet in my darkest hours, tend to believe that neither exits.

This poem was great!  A complete reflection of my life.  There are so many times that I feel like I am down in the dumps and the only thing that picks me up is the realization that nothing is supposed to be perfect, trials will make me stronger, and it doesn't help at all to feel sorry for myself.  "Stop thinking about the past and start building your future, even if you have to start from scratch."  Thanks for the poem and keep writing.
