What's The Meaning of Family?

by Liz

What's the meaning of family,
A group of people related only by blood,
Or people who swarm in one big flood?
Is family those that are there for you,
That help you see it through?
Well, that certainly isn't the meaning of my family.
My relatives don't care,
They act as if we are not there.
My aunt critisizes,
Instead of realizing that we're all different shapes and sizes.
My uncle asks us how we feel about things,
I feel like telling him to go look at old meuseum rings.
My cousins are all annoying,
They're all too busy toying.
What's the meaning of family,
If any at all...

I thought your poem, was very true. Many people struggle in families, such as those. I thought your poem was very good. Keep up the good work. If you could please visit my poems, and write comments, please. My poems, are Just Listen, I miss you mom, and Looking in eyes, etc. You can visit my page, on members, to see them all, because I have about seven of them. That would be great. Once again, you are a good writer, keep up the good work!
