They R All My Sons - Poem by zeinab sherif

All my sons, I realized u r
But alas, after we became 2 far
I didn't have the courage 2 say googbye
I was afraid from ur question why? !
What was my excuse 2 leave u all die? !
& how could I betray my partner &lie? !
I destroyed ur life & killed my true glee
2 u I were a MACBETH &money were 3 witches 2 me
& ur brother is blaming me all the time
He said that I've done a horrible crime
No! No! don'tbelieve him, believe ur dad
I did this all for u,2 make u all……sad
OH MYGOD! every one is looking at me
As if there blood is stained on my face
Or as if I were a loser running in this race
I became JOE THE KILLER, what worse could I be? !
How evil & rude who wants only every thing for himself without caring about others or thinking of the consequences

    no keller wasn't evil...he only worked for an a small entity: (his family) .while he forgot that there is a larger entity which is the society...that's why he committed suicide because he saw what happened to society(or the 21 pilot.and larry) because of his family.which also wasn't happy.beautiful poem but it has much more to say if you're talking about the idea of the whole play.but since you're talking about keller's world view, then it's perfect.
    thanks for sharing.

    Yea, How evil are that type of humans! !
    This is really a good poem and I like the idea of being inspired from the successful drama'All my sons' for Arthur Miller, and also mentioning another title of Drama as 'Macbeth' for the great author Shakespeare...Great work my friend :)
