Broken pieces,
damaged parts,
family matters,
poisoned hearts.
Daily doses
of reproach,
kindled bane
will encroach.

toxic genes,
stop the cycle
any means.

Gather courage,
choose your path,
find the truth,
foster love.

  1. No-one should have to live in fear. This is truth in poetry.
    I thought you had given up writing. Good to see you at my blog and to know that you are still here 🙂

  2. This went straight to the painful part of my heart. I was there with the child in the corner. It was a difficult read for me. It is so very true that we must foster love. You words spoke gently about it.
