I love my family...
by Nyx Sange
Age Group: Adult
The one thing in the world,
More precious than gold or life
Is the love this family gives me
Through sadness and through strife.
When Mother cooks me dinner
With love and warmth and care
And never forgets to tell me
I'm worth all that's there.
When Father keeps me entertained
By witty jokes and fun
And by playing with his children
Let me know it's really begun.
When Son would keep me safe,
And always keep me warm.
And he'd come to my bed every night
To save me from the storm.
When Daughter would make me laugh
By rehearsing every line
From every comidean she's ever heard
And perform it just as fine.
When Mom and Dad watch movies with us
And cuddle with each other.
They let us know how much they love
And devote to one another.
I love this family very much,
Because they let their love be shown.
The only thing that makes me sad
Is this family is not my own.
I'm afraid to go back home
Because of what may wait
I'm scared of all the sorrow and pain
I feel, and all the hate.
My mother's perfectionist ways
Have made me feel unloved
Her eyes are false and only see
What she would call "beloved".
My fathers emotions running wild
And too fast for him to catch.
They taunt him until he becomes enraged
Like a barbarian, not to be matched.
My sister, who drowns her sorrows
Far too numerous to count.
Until she's running raving mad
And brings up old flaws to account.
My brother locks himself away
From all the madness below
He's locked himself up too far away
Where only insanity may go.
My home is a living warzone
Where hate and anger flies.
Not even my familiars can stand it
As much as they have tried.
At home, I feel no warmth.
Just cold, and deep despair.
Where fury blinds my family's eyes
Too much for them to care.
So I run to Son's family
Where love and warmth are found.
Where I can go not to be judged
And where happiness can surround.
I love this family very much,
But I cry and sob alone.
For the family I love to death and beyond,
I cannot call my own...
