What Is Family?


A family is love
That puts itself above
Everything else in this world.

A family is trust
That's fair and just
In its treatment of each other.

A family is pride
And will never hide
Its feelings for one another.

A family is dear
And won't disappear
When things are getting tough.

A family is hope
That learns to cope
With all that comes their way.

A family is sound
With their feet on the ground
On every brand new day.

A family is kind
And will always find
The time to be together.

A family is wise
And treasures its ties
For always and forever.

    I cant help but say thank you for writing this treasure, my family has always been an important foundation for me, and my mother has been an anchor when I needed gravity

    A family is hope
    That learns to cope
    With all that comes their way.

    That summarizes my definition of that great institution. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
