Ellen Greene


Life for Real


Mommy Crying
Daddy Yelling
Auntie Dying
Little Sister Dwelling

Big Sister Hiding
Little Sister Playing
Family Dividing
Little Sister Laying

Mommy Trying
Daddy Leaving
Mommy Lying
Little Sister Teething

Big Sister Singing
Mommy still crying
Little Sister clinging
Grandma Undying

Daddy is off guard
Big Sister stands tall
Mommy trys hard
Little Sister plays with a doll

Family no longer
Everyone a little Stronger
