Failing FamilyA Chapter by Joshua Randall
I need to write this down, now;
before I forget, bring forth these thoughts and recollects,
Need you to understand, that this,
Was never planned,
Only on my paper, I should reprehend.
What was there, and is not there;
I understand that some folks; just crushed,
Flushed with the thought of, "Oh-My-God!"
Understand, maybe to you,
Through your eyes,
Me, not so hard.
To live under cars, bridges, alleyways, covered-newspaper,
To be beaten’ for saying,” I love you.”
For witnessing incestuousness, with my own eyes.
Lies, just to be called a liar.
Crazy you look at me, so diplomatic.
Now, spinning with some “supposed-beginning,”
I told a story, and you had it solved right?
You were involved, right?
…it’s still printing.
My story isn’t over, your story;
Now, I understand that it’s shockin‘.
A mom, right? A mom, who’s done less rockin‘,
More-so stockin‘ her liquor cabinets.
To see that there was five, well, and me,
What else was there to be?
A good boy? I had to,
A good son? I tried to,
A good home? Too scared to.
Your diplomacy is becoming, very…
…well annoying, and you understand, right?
Because, who bought the news for reading,
Threw arms around it, pleading. Correct?
On a cold night, with their trailer creakin’ in the wind,
Readin’ themselves to sleep, on a pillow,
Made of funnies, fortunes, and sin.
I never knew it was that bad, until,
I had honestly, see somethin’ new.
Maybe my trailer wasn’t built, piled…
…with your stainless steel, textured-textile appeal.
But you learn to cope, live, with it’s valid ordeal.
Live not with a lot; but with-what you got.
See only what your told to see,
Poison thoughts, in simple-thought,
Is still broken with your, "diplomacy."
No love, no faith, or conduct of remorse,
For us, for fate.
Fate, is set of-course.
Into some future,
Into some winning Lotto ticket,
In some place.
Where I can’t follow.
Where I can't picket.
