“The Rope Bridge”
We were walking together,
Across a rope bridge that was the world.
Among it all, in nature and waterfalls.
A simple rope bridge where we could have,
Conquered it all.
Maybe I stepped to slow,
Or you stepped to fast.
It all broke apart, 
It was upon us, yet, our strength had failed.
Our grip loosened and we lost our grasp,
As we swung to either side.
For us it all had fractured and had split apart,
Still the world went on.
The waterfalls kept pouring and,
Nature kept growing.
We were broken slamming against the walls,
So far across the canyon.
Until we fell tossed and turned spiraling,
Into an unyielding current,
Swept away, like everything else,
Just swept away, like everything else.

A Nuclear Family

“A Nuclear Family”
“A Nuclear Family”
A Mommy and a Daddy,
With all the tiny struggles in-between.
And I tell my stories of my Mamma and Daddy,
That not one of my siblings ever seen.

But a decade later,
I can assure there were things,
They’ve never seen.

But I am tired of being irrelevant,
Simply because they weren’t there to see.

I’ve no desire to dismiss,
Any of your unknowing.
But I’ll no longer allowed unheard,
What I witnessed happened.

It was mean and it was awful.

I’ve no reason or place to put this on anyone,
But don’t tell me I don’t remember what I remember.
