Poem about Family

Even when a family seems to be torn apart, there is a connection between them that can never be severed.

Family Ties

© Tranikka K. Powell

Such a wonder
is family
they can make you mad
or fill you with glee
My family's broken
but that won't slow me down
Because I know when I need them
they'll still be around
my mother and father
are broken up too
with all this commotion
I don't know what to do
I hear my mother cry at night
I hear her kick and scream
and all I can do
is get stuck in between
I don't see much of my brother
havenít heard from my sister
Iíve felt such pain inside
because I know Iíll miss her
it's said that you lose your memory
after you get old
but what can you do when it's all that you have?
thatís as valuable as gold
but Iíll tell you this
this is what Iíll always remember
it was the hardship that broke us apart
but it's love that still holds us together.
