Are we a happy family? A father who is constantly mad who gives us a hard time who cause us pain. A mother who works so hard and gets no respect who gets no attention are we a happy family we may look happy form the outside, but you only see the walls of the house and not the furniture. So don"t be jealous of us we are not that happy.

Your poems are moving with such directness. I think the writer and the speaker in your poems are one in the same. That’s not a negative, just an observance. Do you write only poems?
