To have your family near
is a blessing in disguise
lots of people are estranged
on that I'm not surprised.

You never pick up the phone
to ask them how they are
it doesn't matter were they live
from a phone it isn't far!

Mostly everyone has a computer
a nessecity for communication
or why don't you stop on by
the next time you take a vacation.

You may have your little differences
let sleeping dogs lie
your life is slipping by you
give it a go, why not try.

To all you stubborn people
who won't make the first move
family means the very essence
nothing is needed to prove.

You may regret not speaking
to your sister brother or dad
remember were you come from
and realize its bad.

So go pick up that phone
get your notepad out and write
the thing with families is easy
no one is wrong or right!

They say you can choose your friends
but cannot choose your kin
blood is thicker than water
be loving from within.

To all you happy Families
I wish you all the best
your love is shining through
you have completed the test.

My friend Amy has a Round Robin poem today and her theme is Family's, well I can't write about the sweetness and light lol even though my own family are cool and I am around them, however there are estranged families, millions in this World, so I wanted to write this poem from these family perspectives.

Are YOU estranged from your family? or do you all get along? who are you closest to?
