A Dark Cloud Looms Over

A house on the corner

When we reside in the house of shame

Our memories are not forgotten

Will they always linger and remain?

When we reside in the house of ignorance and petulance

Shell shock and PTSD

Does it become the norm

On from the age of three?

And in the house of anger

There is no love shown

A special place in hell

For those who have not grown

A dark cloud looms over

The house of misery

Destroying lives for generations

Perpetuating dysfunction within the family
