A Glimmer Of Hope

I have this glimmer of hope
That my parents will stop doing dope
I have other siblings that can see
And this is what we don’t want to be

We don’t want the drugs in our life
Nor our world filled with turmoil and strife
We want our parents to realize
These are more than tears in our eyes

We do not have money for food or a place to live
They do not even have lunch money to give
We live off of food stamps and stuff
I think we about had more than enough

We want our parents to stop doing drugs
So we don’t have to see them screaming about bugs
We need them to take care of us
So we don’t have to listen to them cuss

We need a new way of life
So we can get out of the turmoil and strife
Time to heal the hurt and the pain
For there is nothing else here to gain

This hurt runs deep within the heart
It is tearing our family apart
We need time to rest and heed
Because God is really all we need

He is our glimmer of hope
That will help our parents to cope
To help them to realize their way of life is bad
And that is has made their children and God sad

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
