F is for Family

Family is not technically a feeling

But it does engender a great many

At its best, family uplift your mind

They create a circle of love and care


At its worst it can cut you to the core

Family’s are created in blood

But some are created in choice

Both can circle you in love and care


I am lucky in parents still living

And a brother in blood, dearly loved

But my depression can make it hard

For me to be a full family member


I am lucky in a brother by choice

Who I love as an elder sister should

I can cry on his shoulder

Or more often than not, yell my pain in his ear
