Death Of A Family - Poem by Jamal Brown

Drinking and fighting.
Fighting and drinking.
When does it ever end?
What ever happened to the word 'Family'?
Does it exist any more?
Mother against daughter.
Daughter against Mother.
How can you hate your own blood?
When the Matriarch of our
family died, the beautiful rug
that was our family unraveled with
her. Now, I feel as if the family
rug has unraveled down to me.
I am now left to mourn the tragic
death of my great grandmother and
my family. Is there anybody out
there who can save me from this
ocean of despair?

    It is a crazy World where we live in! There are too many people spiritually death! The absence of Love and Faith is the major factor of this dislocation of the Mind and the Dryness of the Heart! This an eye-opening write that should make many readers think deeply! Well crafted and straight to the point: Why? Only Time Will Tell! 10+++ Be strong because caring people like us must tolerate many crazy things happening everyday! Thank you for sharing and keep it up! God Bless You! Love and Peace for always (We hope) Romeo-NYC http: //www.romeodellavalle.com (Report) Reply
