Broken Home

These four walls resonate

stained from years of pain
coat of wet paint hides the tears

rubble resides,untimely fate
rain cries,
the rusted tin roof echoes,emotions.

Their solution,travesty
family forced,chosen sides
wars within,detonate
a crisis of faith

Father agressor
mother the victim,
son the witness,
daughter the confessor.

A crisis of faith,detonates
their solution,war
house of dreams

rusted tin roof remains
awaiting God.

Family's tears
etched the walls,legacy carved in distress.

These four walls resonate.
