Bloodlines Minus The N

Bloodlines Minus The N

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

If you think this is about family you might be wrong.

"

 

You try connecting the dots

Only to find

That they crisscross

To make an ugly sweater

Knitted by your next of kin.

D.N.A. stands for

Don’t Need Anyone

When standing in the middle

Of a domestic circus.

Veins begin to break like a dam

When bloodlines

Come rushing through locked doors,

Flooding the house,

Leaving you high and dry

In the eye of a family storm.

Thank you very much.
A family could very well be national. We are a national family, a unity born from diversity. That's what I feel here.

This is a brilliant poem on the pain that blood bonds bring

You try connecting the dots
Only to find
That they crisscross
To make an ugly sweater
Knitted by your next of kin.

I keep myself insulated from this pain and ugliness by mimimal contact. Adding to favorites...🍹

Yes dear...even if its our own kith and kin. You are welcome. I appreciate this poem so much.
i have had many of those with a sibling...and blood right now is not thicker than water...
the blood lies thin.

and as elton sang "love lies bleeding in my hand"

you hit the nail on the head with this one...

dwindling family, in my case.
