Eighteen/family

Sometimes family sounds a lot like screaming.

like a group of people brought up

too harsh

too worried 

too loud

like a group of people who somewhere,

somehow, 

forgot how to coexist.

Sometimes family sounds like embers,

too tired to burn.

We wait for a spark to set us alive, but

when it arrives we realise

that setting ourselves on fire 

never helps.

Instead, we just burn till we

can’t anymore.

Too exhausted to change.
