The Silent Blues

The red and blue lights flash

waking up to a commotion

my sister on a gurney 

I don't know this emotion.


The silence is screaming

as the house grows cold

I don't know what to do

I was left alone.


She's in the hospital 

her stomach was pumped

I don't know what to say

I'm in a slump.


I made a promise 

to never be 

the parent who

acts like he.


Things are better

she's a teacher now

I can't look at her though

without thinking of my vow...

My family
