A thousand miles from
a place that’s supposed to be a “home”
when it’s just a house
sheltering four people
that have nothing in common
except some DNA.

Short poems are great, as long as they can contain all the emotion that a longer poem could have. In some ways, shorter poems are better because of the fact that they can contain so many emotions in so few words. It is like the full package, but is less time-consuming.
