“On Being Family”

Much to say
being who we are
thick water
sons, daughters
protectors and friends

know how and when
not where it ends
time never separate bonds
no matter
how colorful or rude
it’s who you are

we love for who we are
not what we want each other to be

don’t have to talk
to understand
good plus rough
situations
we don’t need solutions
just an attentive ear

on being family
just know
I am here
thankful to be blessed
by all your years
it would not be the same
without you here

like any occasion
we get together
to celebrate or mourn
it’s the time together
that keeps the heart warm

I really don’t write about my family much. Even tho I know I owe them the most for how my brain works and how I view things in my life. If it wasnt for them I would not be me; but in my latter life I distanced myself from them. This is just to say I love them no matter how it may seem. It is not what it looks like.

As Always…

Stay Positive!

“Thoughts On Family”

They never bring smiles
frustration maybe
disapproval and frowns
backward thinking
havent seen that in a while
I know I do the same
sometimes…
hopefully that’s shrinking
unlike this page for inking
it brings an understanding
resentment and revelation
willing participation
it’s for this is why I took the vacation

I purposely moved far away from my family. It was everything negative that they had to bring that made me have to distance myself. I love them all the same. I am here if they need me, after all they are family. I love them for who they are, not for what I want them to be.

As Always…

Stay Positive!

“Thoughts – 15”


Shadows…
always in darkness for a while
even the most resilient
sometimes find it hard to smile
not staying in touch
does not mean
I don’t love you as much
I will sacrifice
to be there
frozen under 3 inches of ice
passed on to the afterlife
I would be back just to make it right
for what you’re going through
battle demons to support you
I know im not always there for you
but when i`m there
i`ll always come through

I figure I have my moments of clarity. I would like to think that this was a great passage of time. Even tho this write came about because of not being able to put magnificent words together; in a moment of what I would call my writer’s block. This is what comes out of it .

It’s so many people we have that come into our lives that we would want to do the best by them. This is dedicated to the people in my life that make me want to perform at my best at all times so that I will never let them down. I know as a father, brother, son, family member and best friend, I have people counting on me and that if I so happened not to be around one day I would be missed…

As Always…

Stay Positive!
