Our Family's Cancer

Poetry By: Phoebe Kishbaugh

this is about my mother turning my siblings against me

Don't listen to her stories

Don't feed into her lies

You'll never grow to be her

Or sink to her demise.

Don't tell her that you love her

Don't encourage her to try

We gave up oh so long ago

So now just say goodbye.

Don't laugh at what she tells you

Don't smile at her banter

She's sick and needs to be removed

She's our family's cancer.

I listen from her bedroom door

As she says this in a whisper

Contaminating the little minds

Of my brother and my sister.

She says they'll never be like me

She knows they're so much better

She told them just to stay away

Children, just forget her!

But am I actually that bad?

There's no one else that thinks so

But since my mother says I am

I'll listen to her plea, and go.
