Treasure Island

Patrick Villareal

(10/27/93 / Rancho Cucumonga)

Our Family, My family


Our family, My family, so broken and divided are we
So caught up with anger amongts ourselves, so much we cannot see
So focused on bitter disputes and drawn out battle lines
Still trying to achieve victory against these unbreakable vines
Stuck in the murkey water trying to get free
Our family, my family so broken and divided are we

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
