Poetic Verses

Blood Kin
It took their getting on in years
To find out where they stand
With blood kin they were sure about
But now can't understand.

They should have seen this coming
But decided to close their eyes
Because they never thought that kin
Could cut all family ties.

But the lingering doubt they had was gone
When illness came to call
And the absence of acknowledgment
Proved the worst insult of all.

Oh yes, it was a bitter pill
To face the reality
That the blood kin they were sure about
Are now a mystery.
