Quote of the day:
“Sometimes I wish that I was the weather, you'd bring me up in conversation forever. And when it rained, I'd be the talk of the day.” John Mayer

Song I am loving right now:
God Damn You’re Beautiful by Chester See

Final writing piece for class:

The steps above are hallow and creak,
I try not to wake my parents from their unsteady sleep.
Flipping through the family albums I start to cry,
This family is no longer a unit and our love has run dry.
A commitment that was once made has been torn apart,
How will this new life begin to start?
The yelling has increased day by day
The stains on my cheeks from crying no longer fade away.
Smiles and forced laughs mask our grief and pain,
Our lives are falling to pieces like a rickety train.
Holding my brothers hand, hot and sweaty,
Waiting to pick which parent “whenever were ready.”
Thinking back to Christmas’ of joy and cheer,
Now I am consumed with uncertainty and fear.
Me and my brother’s hands slip as we choose,
A sibling is not something I bargained to lose.
Walking away from each other, glancing back,
Why did this decision have to be on our track?
My age has increased and now I see,
The decision was right and as it should be.
Unhappy homes are not a place to dwell,
My ears are no longer pierced by a sobbing yell.
Time has been the healer in this long fight,
A joyful family future is in clear sight.
