Poem About Family

What is a family like?

A Family Is Like
© Nicole M. O'Neil

A Family is like a circle
the connection never ends
and even if at times it breaks
in time it always mends
A Family is like the stars
somehow the're always there
families are those who help
who support and always care
A Family is like a book
the endings are never clear
but through the pages of the book
their love is always near
A Family is many things
with endless words that show
who they are and what they do
and how they teach you so you know
but don’t be weary if it's broken
or if through time its been so worn
families are like that-
they're split up and always torn
but even if this happens
your family will always be
they help define just who you are
and will be a part of you eternally

There's one sad truth in life I've found, While journeying east and west
The only folks we really wound, Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow, To those who love us best."
~ Ella Wilcox

It is quite common in families that there be differences that cannot be patched but even when we choose to run away from our roots, eventually we all go back to our "proverbial egg that we were hatched from".
