One Big Happy

I knew that it stood on shaky ground. That its foundations have wasted away from the inside. And without our Mom and Dad, my siblings and I didn't really know how to keep everything together. Yet I had faith that it would continue to weather the seasons.

So I was surprised when everything came crashing down this morning. As much as I tried, it was hopeless to save it from collapsing. And after the dust settled, I was horrified to see everything splayed out on the ground, like a cardboard box unfolded.

My brother and sister stood in the middle of all the rubble. One was holding a hammer. The other one a chisel.

Oh i can understand that... Been through a lot after a very good provided father died. But we were lucky to have a good mother to guide as through. Hugs my friend!

I'm so sorry to hear this, Sean.

As someone who is currently witnessing a collapse of a different kind, I can somehow feel your pain.

Amid the rubble, we can only hope for something better till the dust settles.
