-broken lineage-

November 8, 2013


what do i tell my


when they ask

about who

their grandparents are?

is it easier to pretend

i came into the world alone?

do i tell them

my mother left me

and my father was a mental patient?

what about aunts, and uncles?

do i tell them they hate me?

maybe i tell them

about the several sets of parents

that lied to my face

and disgraced my purity?

saddened and disparaged…

broken and dying…

all i can tell my

children is….

“i love you”
