It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment. This week, I chose the following post: Write a poem about a memory you sometimes wish would disappear.
The fourth of July ...
A day to hold your head up high ...
But on that day, my brother did die.
And sometimes I still question why.
I try not to think about it.
But to this day, I can't understand why he quit.
He thought he took the easy way out.
But he never really thought about ...
The family and friends that still mourn to this day.
There really must've been another way.
On the fourth, I'll probably raise a shot or two.
Because, brother, I really do miss you.
