Broken Home

a family is ruined and broken by domestic violence.

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 aggressor
mother the victim,
son the witness,
daughter the confessor.
Broken

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

rusted tin roof remains
emotionless,scarred
awaiting God.

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

These four walls resonate.

The End
