Define Me

Define Me

A Poem by SilentDreamer

They say alot of things

About homes like these.

Never thought I could relate.

Never thought this family

Would break.

'Cause that's what they call us,

Right?

The perfect ones,

They call us broken.

Broken homes, broken families,

Broken souls?

Not this one.

They say it screws with your head,

Tilts your world

Til everything's split.

They make up lists,

With their critical eyes they see

And say all the reasons to stay.

They say what will happen to us

Kids.

Laying out my future before me.

Flat like a map, with only one path

Left to take.

They say, "You'll be like him."

They say my life's been ruined,

Before it's even started and

I'll never be the same.

It shapes me.

I say, I scream,

That this family's better off broken.

And you can't define this girl's life.

You can't define me.

Reading this piece, it reminded me of my parent's divorce a few years ago. Not everything was broken, but alot was. They can't say what we're going to be like, because they don't know what we are capable of. For one, I'm wanting to be there when my kids come along. Be a better father than mine was...
Excuse me for telling you that, but I thought it would be good to share how I relate to your wonderful and powerful piece.

Your write contains a lot of anger and sadness, yet it is very wise as well, especially these lines. Very nice, thank you so much for penning.
