MISTRUST

My words depart as I try To explain these happenings Mistrust has poke its ugly head And is dragging my family apart Husband against wife Mother against daughter Brother against sister We all are pointing blaming fingers at bloodline Burning our eyes with hatred With no prophecy of it ever ending I’m on a cross road not knowing where to look Lost in flying words Words thrown out of anger Mouth felled with sour love and sweet hatred Eyes swollen with pain and anger Face deformed with fold marks Decedent’s of Cain we have become Investigating each other And forgetting to be each other’s keeper Stretching leg at a moving brother Folding arms at a falling him We all are masters in our own worlds A lone wolf we have become So I sought to find a solution To close Pandora’s box And seek the paradise that is long lost I hope to find remedy to end a family heritage The only treasure that we have.

A powerful write Eric with so much truth. I liked the line referencing Pandora's box. The whole world is guilty of opening that box. Enjoyed the read~ Caryl PS: Welcome to Poetry Soup. Hope to see you enter a contest soon.
