Stone Cold (poem)

Stone cold, that has become
Of a child abandoned at home.
 

Stone cold, a mother had been
Lonely, tired, and forgotten.

Stone cold, a father for sure
All tide up at work, joy so unsure.

Stone cold, a family will be
If, and only they allow it to be.

    yes so true only if they let it become that, relationships take hard work and effort and never giving up when it seems too tough, this poem is a lovely reflection of who you are deep inside, a very beautiful and loving soul.

    Your verse reminds me of the song: The Cat’s in the Cradle, where the father had no time for his son.
    Families need to work together, just like a marriage between two people.

  15. Imaginative use of the image. Poem is deeply sad that too often families allow themselves to get into a ‘stone cold’ rut forgetting the priorities. Nicely done.
