Expendable Extra Ligaments
Helena Chung

As valiant words hold together a façade
they govern the way a society reacts;
And one as frail as my own
Filial love, no longer in place
when apathy replaces the pride once held,
remorse was forgotten too many years ago
Significance as well.

Misfortune comes in 24-packs
Truth in 6
And the hands we hold,
Are the hands that hold us down

Helena Chung has been attending SMC for two years, under communications as her intended major. A resident of Orange County, California, the author has been writing poetry for many years, but until recently have taken pride in her endeavors.
