Hoping For Coping With Dysfunctional Family - Poem by Bill Darrah

Face the facts or they’ll face you. One day we’ll all have to know
What to do. When an unusually peculiar insecurity or
dysfunction ruthlessly plagues the most sentimental core of the
heart so much it becomes the worst calamity a person’s life
will ever be forced to experience, the grief stricken fear of
death itself will inanely seem like nothing to fear at all because
the immense, powerful tenacity of such a ruthless insecurity or
incurable dysfunction has already viciously murdered everything
inside a person who once thoroughly felt alive and well simply
because some strangely Godlike, coincidental ambition greatly
inspired a much bigger positive solution for such an oppressive
burden of insecurity and dysfunction writing is psychologically
curing right now while death takes a dirt nap. For dysfunction
to ever become a promising, fulfilled function for everyone to
truly love and adore, the person afflicted with the malignant
dysfunction must feel deep compassion for what caused such
a devastating dysfunction in the first place if this person really
wants the insecurity of mistreating any dysfunction to be well
treated as the most effective, recuperating security anyone has
the Godlike ability to function with against all odds as the
person’s greatest, most fulfilling achievement ever accomplished.
when someone continually struggles with dysfunctional family,
the person willingly chooses to remain dysfunctional in
everyday relationships or decides to correct the dysfunctional
frame of mind by focusing on achieving a different function in
life until the dysfunction the person used to struggle with is
finally fulfilled through a successfully functioning person who never
struggled with a similar dysfunction. Most people who struggle early
in life with dysfunctional families either retaliate aggressively or
they choose to let it go knowing one day they will create their
own version of a functional family. Until that new functional family
is created, most of these people who don’t confront the problems
with their dysfunctional families with anyone live in a constant state
of bewildered isolation, confusion, or an idealistic form of perfection that is way too irrational for anyone to ever successfully achieve without some confrontation with dysfunctional people.
