A Poem by Erica Ross

Our Reality

I wish I could say I was numb to the pain
But on the inside I can still feel the rage
You can't choose what you were born into
But you can find your own way
And life is served cold at night
But I try to keep it warm in the day
I won't invade your space
So why won't you let me have my way?
What happens to a family that doesn't pray
Their foundation starts to decay
One minute you're all smiles
And before you know it
The love fades away
We are all separated
We are no longer one
All I hear is fussing
And the fun is long gone
I wish things were different
But what can one man do?
If everyone is not on board
It's like a detective without a clue
We don't know where to start
The fighting enrages my heart
I just want to go away
I just need a new start
Maybe they will miss my absence
Maybe they will realize
That without everyone
We are our own demise.
