Chaos Galore

Location

I am the center of a tornado

Everything around me is crumbling and crunching

They are spinning and spiraling out of control

But here, here at the core

Is my peace, my bliss

Where things that engulf me cannot touch

They cannot damage the serenity within me

Because I am in control

 

In the wind

My baby sister is skipping school

For a creepster that lies in the shadows

My little brother is dealing dope

To peers equally unhappy

My older sister is a world away

In the room next door

My oldest brother is losing his grips

On the brain waves of normality

 

In the debris

A mother that loves

A brother that laughs

A marriage that lasts

A family that links
