My Sister was an Angel on earth and now she's an Angel in Heaven. But she shouldn't be in Heaven yet... She shouldn't be dead.

Some readers may find this poem a little upsetting but it's how I feel while I'm still grieving the killing of my Sister.

How does one forgive?

I just don’t know.

How does one forget the past?

I just don’t know.

What do I do with all this heart-ache?

I just don’t know.

~

How do I forgive my Mother?

I can’t.

How do I forgive those that failed my family?

I can’t.

And how do I forgive myself for not being there?

I can’t.

~

My Sister was an Angel on earth

But now she’s an Angel in Heaven.

She should be still alive on earth.

My Mother shouldn’t have killed her.

~

Too many beatings

Too many tortures

Too many failures

Too many dead

~

So, how does one forgive?

How does one forget?

How do I put the past behind?

The past is also the present.

~

Dear God, Lord in Heaven

I Pray but don’t know what to say!

Take Good Care of All Your Angels

They didn’t have to leave…

And I Pray for ALL who GRIEVE

That you end all the suffering

And not for just those who believe.

~

And when my grieving’s over

And my life does come to pass

I hope I get to Heaven

Because I have questions to ask.

~

Enough said.
