Trust we place in those close
Holding who will give most
Sometimes true sometimes not
That provides a very thick plot
The hope we hold for our life experience
Expectation we’ll achieve something serious
Giving and taking through ups and downs
Hoping real family is there through the rounds
We get frightened shaken to the core
Concerned we’ll end up in a ball on the floor
Think of a vision you hold from youth
The warm cradle of family a place of truth
Uncles and aunts cousins galore
Neighbors community could there be more
As you journey forth looking for life
Treasures you love cut with a knife
Are you concerned about your rebirth
Do you still search for your self-worth
Foundation of being connection and place
The bosom of family opportunity for grace
Have you sustained any great loses in life?
Were you disappointed by or did you find comfort and solace in your family?
What did you learn from that experience?
Have you ever thought of the opportunity to teach others how to take care of you?
Have you thought about creating your family?
