Joy

Theres so much pain in my life

so much hurt

so much guilt

so much blood

 

but band keeps me

keeps me alive

breathing

happy

 

my flutes

my family

all six of us

are a family

 

theres band

normal marching band

normal pep band

normal concert band

 

but theres nothing

never

not possible

like my flutes

 

Me

the Mother

Momma Flute

the leader

 

Lexy

Deputy

the funny to my hate

the perfect opposite

 

Kelsey

Example

the quiet one

the one to keep things real

 

Maria

Perfect Child

the humor

the innocent one

 

Gracie

Smartass

copy of me

most loyal to me

 

Brianna

Bunny

the youngest

the one who doesnt try

 

do you see why i have joy?

do you see what i have?

these girls, these....beautiful flutes

that i have the fortune of mentoring

are the best thing in my life

 

i love them to death

i defend them to the death

i will hug them and berate them

we are family, we are love

This poem is about: 
My family
