These People I Call Family

These people
Come to invade my home
These people I call family

They run constantly
Around the house
Children
Naked, begging for all that is here

They keep up a fuss
Never closing their mouths
They keep a mess
Destroying everything they touch

These people
Come to invade my home
These people I call family

They stand as an obstacle
They limit the things
I could do
In my OWN house

They're constantly tattle-telling
On each other
Or someone else, for simple misconduct

When can I be free
Of

These people
That come to invade my home
These people I call family?

this one was funny in that it was so relatable (which is probably the most overused word on teenink, but, whatever, it's so true)

Oh, I can totally relate! This is a great poem though! I can feel your anger and annoyance dripping from the words! Wonderful :) 5 stars
