Family Tree


we grow like evergreen tree
father, mother, daughter, and son
I'm only leaf on the branch family
brother, sister
the unseeing fate plants us together
wedding, birth, and funeral
blood tells no doubt
caring but annoying
there are laugh and fight in the same room
misunderstanding then forgiving
love and hate blurred into one
torn but longing for home
there are tears and comfort from the same pain
one can not judge all, one can not separate all
the root will never be destroyed
though the leaves fall or the branches die
it will grow entwined with other trees
making canopy in the wide forest of the world

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
