Love your Siblings
We had to write a poem in my English class and the girl who sat next to me was having a hard time writing her poem. During Peer review, she related to me that that she was having family problems that was affecting her daughters relationship with her immediate family. I wanted to help her out so I told her to let me see her poem. She handed me a paper that was a jumble of phrases and words that really touched me and I related to it, so I took her paper and told her that I would write a poem for her personally. This is what I came up with.
I have five of them, the love is equal and the same
We don't always get along, But no one is to blame
Their battles are addiction, I pray to god they change
Precious lives, and worlds of potential
To many excuses, far and wide they range
Bad Mother, Childhood trauma, The pipe is in control.
It dictates their life, and where it will soon go
To do this for my daughter, I Iive clean and drug free
For her to have a better life, this is how that it must be
Don't get me wrong, I have my faults
I drink and do smoke pot,
But to let it dictate my life, No way, absolutely not !
I love my Mother, But last night she got a call
My sister and her addictions, Took her to a bad, bad fall
Now she lays in a hospital bed, her life she keeps, we hope
Why can't this world find a way to get rid of all the dope
To my Siblings, Please listen to what I have to say
Value your lives, Love yourselves, know there is a better way
I will keep on praying, For one and all the five
Stay strong, while battling your demons
and lets all just stay Alive
