Careful Now

poem by: Sunshine E
Written on Nov 09, 2017

Careful now
be careful of 
where your stepping
the ice is thin my dear
don't ask 
about daddy
don't ask
of why he gave you
ibuprofen 
instead of you
ADHD meds
don't ask of why
there is so many 
beer cans
in the recycling bin
don't ask 
of why he sleeps 
all day
don't ask
why he doesn't remember
don't ask
just
don't ask
okay
please
be careful 
of where your stepping
The ice is thin my dear
