    The terribleness tore
    The tears through thin times
    Dad drank doubles
    Didn't deliver dimes
    Mom made money
    mysteriously materialize
    We were without
    Wanting worldly wealth
    Children can create
    Conditions candidly chosen
    From fabled fiction
    flavored from fairytales
    Surely survivors
    Survived slavery's stings
    Toughened through trials terrible

    To triumph through these things

    Thinking slavery would be the biggest hurdle, only to find that there's more. Deeply felt, and written.
