    DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY


    I was making scrambled eggs this morning
    Phone ringing constantly
    Call I.D blinking help me!
    The aroma smelled of a broken hearted family

    My shoulders weak from sweat and tears
    Trying to hold the world up by my fingertips
    A product of a drunken dream
    A flushed spirit

    Fair weather friends unhappily married with diamonds to confide in
    An aunt who’s like a sister to me,
    But in between her husband and her boyfriend,
    I’d have to tie a rope around her soul to pull her in

    A naked little girl begging for her innocence
    Psuedo -relationships aging in a distillery of bullshi*
    Mama wasting her life on kids that never gave a shi*
    If vodka was a country she’d be the president
    A father trying to forgive himself for me maturing quick

    A grandmother dying from her husband’s addiction
    Back broken into pieces of sand
    Rehabbed methadone replaced her praying hands

    A sister who bakes cookies for her kids in between suicide attempts
    Dependant upon her man because her self-esteem diminished her strength
    A baby sister who’s beauty buys her designer outfits
    Bedding pedophiles, suffering from I never had a daddy complex

    A brother who followed his father’s footsteps
    Got a masters in drug delivery and a minor in knowledge
    A rap star entrapped in slavery
    A willy lynch trophy holding up the walls of the pennitiary

    And then there’s me
    Scrambling eggs every morning
    Watching my daughter as she sleeps
    Holding an empty picture frame marked daddy
    Constant weight gain
    And lord please send me a good man today
    Bills coming faster than my payday
    Trying to figure out how GOD’S going to fix this catastrophe
    Praying that everyone can fix their own problems
    When it’s just too much for me!

    wow very emotional poet. felt all too real very real. all we have to do everyday, not some of the day. but everyday is to pray ask our father to releave some of the pressure. he's our father right that's what fathers do. we'll leave him before he leave us. only he know what's in his heart. i was in the bowels of hell last year everything was wrong. until i ask my heavenly father to remove what was around me and then he did. you got to have faith and love in your heart only he knows that. well im through rambling flo on sis.
