blindness

I had a family once
I had sisters
I still have a mother
But it no longer feels like my family

I feel my tears stream down my eyes
I feel the lump in my throat as I try
To hold back the tears but they keep coming
I had a family once
I had sisters
I still have a mother
But it no longer feels like my family

I feel my tears stream down my eyes
I feel the lump in my throat as I try
To hold back the tears but they keep coming
We are falling into a dark whole

We are screaming for each other
But we no longer see are selves let alone our kin
We are drifting apart slowly but steadily
Our anger is all we see

I wish........
I wish that they could hear each other
I wish that I didn’t hear them
Their screams their pain I hear it all
I see it all why am I not blind to it

I wish I really wish that I had my family back

Reality

You fall a sleep,
you see darkness,
you dream,
your dreaming of
a family.
your family.

Your family is brakig apart.
you've lost your job,
you cant put food on the table.

You panic, you frees,
your family tels you to look for a job.
you're in a dazes,
you cant see clearly its fussy,

You suddenly awake,
you can see the light.
it's not a dream, its real life,

You skater you wary,
but, you get your self under cintrol,
you hunt for a job, you succeed.

You now can suport your family
its all coming together
things are now fiting in to place,

Your now perminet at your now job,
you don't have any weres except,
you suddenly sit up in bed,
now was it a dream or reality

Family Comes First

In the year of the dragon
Destiny caressed her hopes
He entered inconspicuously
Shadowed by his friends
By chance a brief encounter
Love had crossed her path
Two became one
Promises were conveyed
“Family comes first”
Life was so beautiful
Miracles were fashioned
One in his image
The other in her essence
He showered them with love and affection
Constantly reiterating
“Family comes first”
Frantically awakened
By a steady stream of calls
He rises up to leave her
Revolver in his sights
Inquires on agenda
Or to other resolutions
“These guys and me are brothers”
“Family comes first”
In the year of the rabbit
Destiny destroyed her dreams
He entered most conspicuously
Surrounded by his entourage
Distraught and inconsolable
Powerless to speak
Promises once spoken
'Family comes first'
The price for noncompliance
The cost for him to quit
A bed of dying roses
While grieving mourners sing
The Old G starts his sermon
And pleads for his forgiveness
“The young man didn’t realize
That family comes first”

Family Comes First, Part 2

Kari begged for his mercy
Quivering uncontrollably she cried out
Hoping somebody, anybody should stumble upon them
His eyes filled with rage
Oblivious to the pandemonium he was creating
He lifted his gun and muttered
“Family comes first”
It’s been ten years since he vowed
To follow in his daddy’s footsteps
Laying there in his casket
Surrounded by all of his homies
Each one living out the doctrine
“Family comes first”
His mother dared to deny him
An opportunity to continue to propagate
The cancerous philosophies
Of such a destructive cycle
Forcing him to find refuge and camaraderie
In the arms of his father’s assassins
Constantly reiterating
“Family comes first”
Initiation presented complications
Three frighten witnesses
Wrong place at the wrong time
Lying next to her two friends headless cadavers
Kari begged for his mercy
Pacing back and forth
His heart filled with fear
He approaches the windows
And yell out towards the spot lights
“Family comes first”
In a flash the room collapses
Commands are shouted
Flickers of light precede
The Angel of death
In the aftermath the second funeral in a decade
In the year of the ox
A grieving widow lays her child to rest
Inscribed on his casket his final words
“Family comes first”
