Family Therapy (IV)

“We are the doctor’s worst

unexplained nightmare. And we never speak 
of the Endocrine glands—Unsavory

secretions passed down like the heirloom
 nobody even wants. We are a Rogue nation.”

“Family Therapy (IV), by Cynthia Atkins, is probably one of the most beautiful poems that I have ever heard. I believe that the poem represents all the bad things in life that we try to avoid and cover up with as many good things as we can. They never can really be avoided; they’re always there, scratching under our skin.

It is a very dark poem, but scenic in nature. She essentially points out the faults that human have became more and more self-conscious about. Not in a way to sound malicious, but to show how ugly it is to be indefinite with yourself. Way to often we try to hide things or cover things up when instead we should be expressing ourselves and become carefree. We are all humans; we all share the same problems. Therefore is it really that bad that we need to cover our humanely functions up? Spend less time caring and more time living.
