A Family

There is family by biology.  Then there is family by choice.  In many instances who is to say which is the deepest tie.  Biology and kinship are interesting in their perspectives, aren’t they?

Foxcity - Swans In A Family Way

A Family
by Michael Romani

When life takes its turn
And we watch the world burn
Times come a little too tough
Yet, too much is never enough

Will you run into a raging fire
Pledging your best to never tire
Is there something there in your heart
That will always stop from ripping apart

We have to give all we can give
We to live with all we can live
Never giving up not one inch
Digging deep down into our moral trench

There it is as it seems
This old cruel cold tears at our dreams
But, they'll never, ever win
What they tear down, we'll just build again

In this celebration of our humanity
We live life large in our dignity
Some might say it is our vanity
And still this love has built a family
