Thumped

SILENCE IS COSTLY, SANITY TAKES FOREVER

LIFE IS UGLY, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT TAKES EVERYTHING

CHILDREN FEAR TO THEIR BUTTS

PARENTS SHAKEN IN THEIR THOUGHTS

EYES ALWAYS HALF CLOSED, MIND ALWAYS ALERT

HEARTS HAVE LAZY GLUES TO THEM, THEY HAVE BEEN TORN APART

EYES FIXED AGAIN AND WAITING FOR THE LAST STRAW

TO SUCK UP THEIR LAST COURAGE, THE SOUND OF WAR

NIGHTS ARE SHORTER THAN ORGASM

THEIR MINDS TRIES TO HOLD ON TO REALISM

TOUGH MOTHER, FRACTURED FAMILY

FRIENDLESS FAMILY FROWNING FREQUENTLY

NO TRUST, ALL ENEMY

MOTHER WAKES UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

SHE STARES AT HER FEAR -STRICKEN CHILDREN

HEAVEN LOOKS AT HER AND PRETENDS  IT DOES NOT KNOW HER PLIGHT

SHE RESENTS TO GIVE UP HOPE LIKE EVERY OTHER WOMEN

FOOTSTEPS GET THEM RUNNING HELTER SKELTER

LEAVES AND WOODS BECOME THEIR NEXT SHELTER

THE FUTURE HOLDS NOTHING

THEIR LIFE BECOMES AN UNENDING DEFINITION OF GRIEF

IT ENDS WHENEVER, SUSPICIOUSLY BRIEF

AS SHE TURNS TO TOUCH HER BABY’S FACE

DARKNESS! HER HANDS FEELS EMPTY SPACE

ALL AROUND HER, FLOATING FACES

SHE TRIES TO FIND HER BABIES

WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN? SHE ASKED, CONFUSED AND TEARY

I DON’T KNOW . A VOICE RESPONDED

THEY MIGHT BE HERE SOON, IF NOT THEN THE BLAST WAS NOT SO DEADLY

WHAT DO YOU MEAN/ EYES DRIPPING HEAVILY

YOUR KIDS ARE ON THEIR WAY HERE FROM EARTH

HERE IS WHERE WE LIVE AFTER DEATH

SHE PRAYED THEY DON’T MAKE IT HER

AS FREE AS IT LOOKED, IT DIDN’T LOOK SO FINE

SHE STILL BELIEVED HER KIDS COULD STILL SHINE

THAT’S IF THEY DON’T GET BLASTED

HER FUTURE FOR THEM EVAPORATED BEFORE HER EYES

COS SHE KNEW THOSE KIDS WOULD NEVER REALIZE

THEIR DREAM

THEY WOULD PROLLY SOON DIE

BECAUSE THE LAST DON’T THINK OF THE FUTURE

IT JUST BLASTS

  1. this is not bad but the CAPITALIZATION of every character scared me…….. nice anyways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. OOOH THIS WAS INTERESTING. I LIKED THE LINES “EYES CLOSED, MIND ALERT” AND “HEARTS HAVE LAZY GLUE, EASILY TORN APART.”
