Broken Dreams

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
Everyone out there workin’ hard
Gettin’ that money for a house and car
So many wantin’ a form of fame
Anything for millions to know their name

They sell themselves to the highest bidder
Whatever it takes to reach the top quicker
No real sense of safety or morality
Just the rush to get the status of celebrity

Too many these days forfeit what they love
Because it doesn’t get them riches they heard of
It’s a sad sight to see them give up the fight
The reality of a crushed dream and no delight

Lots of people don’t even put in the effort
Due to the fact they feel they have no worth
Those feelings of regret begin to creep in
Without ever allowin’ themselves to begin

It’s not a one way street of guarantee
But without tryin’ who knows what they’re missing
There needs to be a little more belief
So their lives aren’t robbed by self pity

Hook (x2):
A lack of confidence, a low self esteem
The pursuit of happiness gone to the broken dreams
Re-evaluation needed to get back clean
Keep hope alive to overcome the obscene

2nd Verse:
So many young women with beauty
Feelin’ as if sex appeal is their duty
So many aspire to get into modeling
But end up in the realms of pornography

Some truly seek to be genuinely classy
But can’t control the costs of entry
There are those forced into human trafficking
The last thing they wanted was slavery

The fact that this rampant objectivity
Is closing the door on more dreams
By creating nightmares for many ladies
Diminishing lives and their priorities
It’s sickening to say the least

I can’t fathom the amount of betrayal
Lookin’ in the mirror as a different portrayal
The life they once dreamed for
Is being treated like trash thrown out the door

By stayin’ smart with their decision process
Many more can avoid all of those losses
They just need to be educated of the signs
To know they’re not destined for that type of decline

Hook (x2):
A lack of confidence, a low self esteem
The pursuit of happiness gone to the broken dreams
Re-evaluation needed to get back clean
Keep hope alive to overcome the obscene

Closing:
Don’t get trapped
And don’t hold yourselves back
This life doesn’t last
So get your dreams on the right track
