Broken Family - Poem by cecelia warner

By: Shannah Mackey

My family is broken and cannot be fixed.
I wonder if they love me or if I'm even missed.
We used to be so happy but where did that go?
I'm not sure how they feel but I almost feel alone.
It was such a stupid fight. Who knows what about.
I just remember it all ended in screams and shouts.
No one calls my mom and it makes her very sad.
I don't know what happened to the special bonds we had.
My family is broken and I don't want it fixed.
Just know that they are loved and they are missed.
Except for one who I think started it all.
Just know if you want to talk. I'm not gonna be the one to call.
We all went through the same pain sometime last year.
Someone very special died but we all still hold her near.
I couldn't say, 'good-bye' or tell her she is loved.
I just hope that she is here. Watching me from above.
My family is broken and cannot be fixed.
I wonder if they love me of if I'm even missed.

This poem is for my family. We've been through a lot but we haven't been there for eachother. It's sad that we don't talk anymore and it's hurting us all. My mom really misses everyone but no one calls and she doesn't feel part of the family. I don't really consider us a family anymore because family is supposed to be there for eachother but we're not. Instead of listening to all the lies going around...Try to find the truth! ! ! You can't always believe what you hear because then this happens. If any of you are reading this. Don't call beacuse you think you have to. Call because you want to and because you love us. The fight isn't only hurting the adults. It's hurting the KIDS too! ! !
