The Family Tree - Poem by Patricia Grantham
A tiny seed is sown with care into the fertile ground
Then a small tree pops out slowly from its earthly mound
With care it is nurtured by the life giving soil and air
The branches then began to reach as if to someone near
Its roots can grow and flourish as far as the eyes can see
Just like the many members that makes up the family tree
The leaves are like the children that's born of mothers and fathers
The tree may be hewed down but root remains in sons and daughters
The mighty trunk of the tree is what keeps its limbs together
A family should remain steadfast in any kind of weather
Is your family like the one that can't withstand the storm?
Or is it one that doesn't care to be within the norm?
Everyone who lives on earth is born with a family tree
We have no choice in the matter it's part of our history
A tree can grow to unknown heights as if to touch the sky
The family tree will always flourish whether we live or die
