Insane vulnerable family ties....

Insane vulnerable family ties....

A Poem by heartspeaks
"

Family is what matters the most ...even if they make you feel most vulnerable...

"
Fights and taunts are common in families,
Between siblings and between others as well...
Such a thing happened with me as well,
And my temper got me rebelled,
Everyone has a problem with me,
I wish I was never a part of this family,
I am the one always judged and told,
And they never seem to find
faults in their own fold,
Angry I grab my car keys,
And get going to any possible place,
Where I could find some peace,
My mind boils with anger passing through my spine,
I wish I was from some other bloodline,
To divert my mind I turn on the radio,
Weather damaged all channels except one,
Somethings better than nothing I thought,
Listening to it my mind may sort,
A news they broadcasted held my breath,
A lightning struck a house where all the residents were dead,
My heartbeat stopped when they addressed it as my colony,
And just were about to mention the name of the family,
The radio stopped receiving the signal,
I drove with the highest possible speed towards my home,
Each and every moment spent with my family,
Started to replay in my mind,
All the beautiful memories had just begun to rewind,
All the way I just prayed,
Please God, let my family be alright,
Who will I tease and fight with further,
If my siblings aren't there!
Who will I go to when I miss my friends,
If my aunt isn't there!
Who will I challenge for all my games,
If my uncle isn't there!
Who will teach me, be my guide, my protection,
If my father isn't there!
Who will I go to
When I need to find myself,
If my mother isn't there!
A choke in the throat,
Eyes all dried up with fear,
Heart was crying deepest,
The wail only my soul could hear,
So many words unsaid,
So many moments unlived,
So much love there's to confess,
Guilt overpowered me and worse did fear,
Fear that I'll lose all those who are dear,
And will lose them to a place of no return ,
And the nerves all over my body started to quiver,
The speed knew no bounds,
Yet was less than the ignition of my heart,
Pressed the break with extreme force,
And stopped in front of my house with a creaking sound,
My house was in one peice , standing strong,
Only then I realised I was alive!,
And released the breath I was holding too long,
I ran to my house like I've been away for decades,
Broke through the window pane,
when they didn't open the door,
Even when I rang the bell and hit the door like an insane!,
All were startled to see me,
But I hardly care what they think of me right now,
Cause all I wanted was to be with them somehow,
I hugged my siblings with whom I had a terrorist battle before I left,
They were shocked on what got the volcano inside me to become Nile,
Hugged my mother and felt just like
when she hugged me when i was a new born,
She smiled and caressed my back,
I knew she understood what my madness within actually was,
When she pointed towards father with her eyes,
And then my father sent me a scold,
For breaking in like a thief,
I just stared at him and then...
jumped and Hugged him tight!,
Finally my heart had huge relief... .

I hope you like it. I just wrote this as it was coming through... Family is something that is irreplaceable and often we forget to express to them, how madly we love them... It might not have the exact rhyming or free verse flow to it... its upto you to read it the way you like....

this poem is something i can relate to.
my brother is the perfect son and im the rebel daughter in my family. there are times where all that ive achieved or all my talents are shadowed by minor mistakes i make. this leads to mefighting with my family. being angry and furious with many things they say or do to me. but at the end of the day, theyre all ive got. so i forget all hate and fights and i join ties with them. and honestly the last few sentences sum up that feeling so well. despite being angry wt them and stuff the minute you make up and everythings fine and you hug em ( your parents) the world just feels at peace. nice poem !!!

I believe each and everyone can relate to it. Such a truthful piece, with their affection one can fight back with any hardships and without their blessings every single breathe seems burdensome... I am proud that somebody shared this honor on this platform. Great work

Something is precious to us only when we crave for it or we lose it. The fear of losing his family awakened the son, nephew and brother in him. At the same time we should not forget that we all are just mere dots in the vast dotted circle of life.
I can truly relate to this poem.
Keep writing!

This is an extraordinary way to tell a story in verse that shows us the transformation from hating one's family to being glad for one's family. Excellent details & dynamic storytelling, combined with vivid imagery in verse. This isn't a polished sounding piece, but it's better that way becuz the ragged urgency makes it feel more realistic. Here in the US with the recent huge hurricane, we are all appreciating things we took for granted & being thankful for those we love being safe. I'm sure India is similar with your recent flooding, too! (((HUGS))) This is an excellent piece. Fondly, Margie

Powerful and honest words shared my friend. You create situation and people. You allowed the reader to feel the stress and the struggle.
"For breaking in like a thief,
I just stared at him and then...
jumped and Hugged him tight!,
Finally my heart had huge relief... "
I liked the above lines. Always some hope? Thank you for sharing your amazing words and thoughts.

Was my pleasure and you are welcome.
Critique: (Such a thing happened with me as well) happened to me - "with" is not the right preposition to use in this context
(The wail only my soul could hear) A wail
(They were shocked on what got the volcano inside me to become Nile) shocked at what - become the Nile

Review: Nice tale almost fable like, you might consider posting this in a paragraph format as a story it reads very well. A good make me feel good in side read that I believe most of your readers will enjoy. Well done Bravo! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!

Woah... that was something alright!
I really liked it Heart!!
I was engaged by this realistic, emotionally beautiful and powerful poem!
I so agree, family is irreplacable and fights can't split us apart, due to the love and bond that holds stronger position!
Well done, keep it up :))!!
