Two short poems to think about the impact individuals in families have on one another.

Hatred Does Reproduce



Hatred
And animosity
That is
Relayed
Escalates
Domestic Violence!

Dangerous
Oppression
Everyone
Suffers!

Revenge
Exploits
Personal
Rights.
Oppression
Dilutes
Unity, and
Constructive
Emotions.

Another Alcohol Story

An empty cupboard, no milk in the fridge
This scant house, so full of kids
Distant adults, consume the worry
Nothing unusual, just another alcohol story.

An antique wardrobe, a safe hideout
The wrath of intoxication, on permanent lookout
Confused children, ragged and pale
Nothing unusual, just another alcohol tale

An isolated life, no one to tell
The dread of affiliation, a living hell
Neglected souls, dirty and cold
That’s when you know, it’s taken control.

Pray for the children, set them free
Bruises will heal, as they did for me
But the damage is done, I know they are sorry
We must intercept the author, of another alcohol story.

Powerful, written from the heart. Children suffer for no fault of theirs and left with mental scars that cannot heal - siva
