' A Family (Acrostic) '


Being with family is best part,

real world to spend meaningful life;

and it is when you feel at home...

to mingle with people you love.



Family is the basic unit

and the foundation of society.

making peace and unity at home,

is the secret of a progressive community.

life shall become worthwhile for all the people

yearning for a happy family is to make it happened.

    Marvin, interesting observations. A few years back our daughter gave me this observation: Your family are the people you're stuck with, your friends are the family you choose for yourself. Once having reflected on this I concluded that she broadened my understanding of the word family. Cheers! (Report) Reply
