Lovey Love


Broken Family


The outside of a house isn't as it seem,
Family isn't like how they are in the t.v screens
Family consisted of a Dad, Mom, and two kids
and them seemed to have it all money, clothes, and a white picket fence outside their crib
Everything looked pretty until step through the door
Parents cursing, dishes being broke
Dad sleeping around, Mama finna cut his throat,
Marriage growing apart and the kids witnessed it all
No kid is too little to know what's going on
When Mama crying in the kitchen,
Daddy packing his bags and walking out the door
Even the best of families hit the floor
Kids left crying, trying pick up the pieces
and put the picture back together
But just like Humpty-Dumpty it's over for them

    Great Poem. I come from one of these families, happened twice in my childhood. I would say, better two separate and contented parents, than having to live between two badly suited parents. Simple as that! Then the parents can concentrate what their kids need to get over the hurdle.

    When it is over, it is over
    And time to start anew.

    All the best to you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
