The blessed ones are those with strong family ties,
that cannot be broken when even the darkest evil tries.
For some of us this kind of love is hardly ever seen,
so we search for love and fulfillment by some other means.
Often we make a rushed and unhealthy choice,
refusing to listen to our distinct inner voice.
Oh yes, we hear this voice loud and clear,
the truth often being our greatest fear.
From ourselves, we run ~ we try so hard to hide,
but nothing can bury the real truth, hidden deep inside.
Strong family ties, are knots forever bound,
that form the kind of bond that is not often enough found.
Family is the root from where we all begin,
and to forget where we came from is truly a sin.
