About the Poem
When a heart becomes broken or someone feels left out, I know from experience that it hurts. There is nothing that can be done or said to make the pain subside any sooner than it was meant to.
At the age of 15, many think that I am unable to communicate feelings of life or love because they think I am too young to understand it. But I've been there too. I've lost friends both male and female of many different races to the cruelty of those living in a small town. The third stanza is my way of trying to get my motto across. "The world's small enough - Stop The Hate!"

A Shattered Dream
|by Jody Nichols
A heart broke
By the sad word goodbye
It's hard to believe
One word can make so many cry
A loss too many
A team fallen apart
Can one bad play
Really break so many hearts
A different religion
A different race
Why can't we
See the hurt on their face
A broken heart
A divided team
A cry for help
A shattered dream.
