Meaning of this word
Think warmth to absurd
Bosom longed for when away
Nest of freedom then you play

Home glowing embers warm hearts
Enraging inspiring motivating arts
Familiarity knows your presence
Heritage context of your essence

Blood relations origins genetic
Sometimes connections pathetic
Generating tumult strong emotions
Blurred boundaries magical notions

Preserving sacred traditions
Current grounding ancient religions
Visible place others see
Who is you who is me

Searching lost wandering spent
How to find where you went
Place to return hang with clan
Rest be held learn who you am

Who and what did family give you?

Do you return for their communion and have you forgiven them?
