A bread of sadness

Today we bake a bread
Of sadness,
a bread of tears
That well up from the
Bottom of the heart.

Once we had a dream
And now that
Dream is there yet not at all.
Once we had a dream so large
That all else vanished in its
Place.

A dream so grand
That we forgot about everything
Else but this.

Then ego came,
and pride.
We took ourselves
For granted
And even that dream.

Illness befell us
Long before we knew.
An illness of the soul
For we had forsaken the path of love
For glittering dreams.

All vanished in one final blow.

And now we just feel lost
And do not know what to do.

So we bake a bread
Of sadness,
A bread of tears
That well up from the
Bottom of the heart.
