Poems In Memory of Loved Ones

Memories of our family and childhood are what shape our personality and who we are. Whether we like it or not, our personality is formed by our parents, brothers, sisters, and the environment that we grew up in. For some interacting with their family feels like more bother than it is worth. They cut off ties with their families and make up pseudo families made up of chosen friends. This is OK as long as we realize that our past continues to affect who we are. We can only grow as people when we choose to confront our past. Only then can we move forward in our lives.

The man's name was Dick, he had no other.
He came at a time when names were no bother.

His mother died young, he cried so loud.

Aching hearts,
Endless wars,
Brave-heart warriors and falling stars.
They shine so bright blinding our eyes,
Yesterday we saw better things.
