Divine Family - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Family is a familiar word, everybody does know,
It is a set of relation, can you say no?
The set is just combination of children and parent,
There members of households and relatives are inherent.

It means to group of person closely related by blood,
It includes parents, children, uncle and aunts in one clod.
Family also means to group of things those are alike,
It is too all the descendants of one lineage like.

There are many types of families in human society,
Some are Nuclear family, Single parent family of humanity.
Childless and Step family are there with Extended family,
Family members dwell with love in a family happily.

In a family there is love affection and sacrifice,
Many members are tagged in one mess or in rice.
There is a member, who is head of family and mentor,
The other members obey him or her as a centre.

He or she is merciful, helpful and is meritorious,
Health and education he or she maintains continuous.
All family members engross their effort here,
All are benevolent, affectionate near and dear.

Almost families have worship room in dwelling place,
Prayer to God or meditation goes on in calm pace.
It is divine family where peace and purity are always,
Here truth, nonviolence and bliss rule over hallways.

    He or she is merciful, helpful and is meritorious,
    Health and education he or she maintains continuous.
    All family members engross their effort here,
    All are benevolent, affectionate near and dear. you wrote about an ideal family and the final stanza about the worshipping place at home where all come together. soo nice. but i am living in Europe. you know there are thousands of broken families. divorce, lost boys and girls, drugs etc. it is pathetic to see that. God bless you always.

    Yes sir, family is the basic unit of the society, and is the most important unit our existence, and mankind. The problems show up when selfish motives creep in to any setup and so also is in family life. If such complications show up, only, a head of family who has wishdom can only save the situation.
