Toxic

I did not make or capture this image. I found it online.

We’re a toxic household,
A toxic family.

We’re stuck in this rut,
This vat of toxic waste,
Unable to afford an escape.

We get angry too easily,
And hold grudges too long.

We say all is forgiven,
but every crime is recreated
when a new on is committed.

Our eyes they stare
at each other in anger

Because we are a toxic household,
a toxic family,
and this one doesn’t end with superheroes.

Super villains more likely,
three to be exact.

Each other’s arch nemesis
in this toxic household,
this toxic family.

      PLUTO 4 years ago from ALBUQUERQUE, NM, USA

      halo* this is so beautiful.

      I think this summarizes most households. If not the majority, I like the line "Because we are a toxic household,

      a toxic family,"

      again, a beautiful a poem :)
