The Will - Poem by Frank Jacoutot

A family is born
And lives and grows together
They go through life believing
This happy state will last forever
But passage of the years
Comes the time that brings the tears
And families lose fathers and
Their mothers,
Then a will is decreed
And some in their greed
Turn against their sisters
And their brothers.
