Artist's Way


by Wenona Gardner


I am the oldest of 8 children

and I have 4 sisters but we are not close.

My family was abusive to me

and I was placed in foster care

with several foster siblings I have

no connection with today.

When I watched Charmed

I admired the Haliwell Sister’s bond.

Not only to each other but to all the

matriarchs in their family line.

They have family and I don’t.

I live out in Omaha, NE all alone

no family out here where I live.

I grow sad cause I long for family

to surround me like close sisters

who are there for each other through

think or thin whether good or bad.
