That spells out F. And God bless if it's oh, so true, The way that He blessed me! It's like that painting that I've seen, Two cubs, one lioness On Family Values I'm so keen, For love brings happiness! We know that lion cubs aren't tame, Yet they still fool around! And everything's to them a game, No matter what they've found The lionesses gather near To grant a helping hand, For while their love stays crystal clear, Who knows what cubs have planned? When evening comes, they settle down And peace arrives at last!
Their Mother doesn't wear a frown Or look at them aghast! With one eye open, one eye closed, The cubs are close to sleep Why is it now she loves them most? She doesn't hear a peep Denis Martindale, copyright, October The poem is based on the magnificent painting by Stephen Gayford called 'Family Values'.

Famous Poems. Phenomenal Woman Maya Angelou.They love each other and their children but they studiously ignore The poor old one in her mid eighties their near neighbour who lives next door To her they feel so much superior in their eyes she's an old faded rose Human beings can be so hypocrtical that's human life one would suppose.
Society promotes good family values but in their set of values inclusion they do not include You must be a good family person but to your neighbours 'tis okay to be rude 'Tis okay to ignore an old lady in her twilight years wrinkled and gray If she falls ill we might have to help her and for us that would be going out of our way.
Good family values just one set of values it doesn't say much for the person you are If you do not pick up your aged neighbour who is carrying her shopping as you arrogantly drive by in your car Your family and small circle of friends to you only important all others to nothing amount But to those genuinely true to the higher principles everyone they know of to them count.
You are one of good family values you love your children and your wife And though these values are quite important there are other values in life You ignore your poor aged neighbour to her you never once did say Can I do something for to help you and society sees you as okay.

God gave me a family on Earth, This family is just what you see, Dysfunctional as any family could ever be. You know, families aren't meant to be perfect, just available, loving, and caring in the time of need, just to embrace and plant a loving seed.
My family is loud and boisterous, a little nosy too, lawdy, they are judgmental. They feel that's what they were put here to do. My family comes in all colors: red, black, yellow and some white folks too, God does not limit a family just to please me and you.
This family has many talents: leaders, teachers, doctors, lawyers, mentors too. There is so much value in this family, I'm just proud to be a part of you. Share or Embed Picture.

Liked this? You might also like …. Were you touched by this poem? Share Your Story Here. Related Categories.Many times we can look at family with feelings of warmth, lovehappiness, and safety. Just as many times, however, family can bring up pain and frustration and flat out trauma. Families are as complicated as the individuals that make them up. We walk around with their DNA trying to define who we are. Who do we look like?
Are we really just like our mothers? Or ear for music? Or taste for wine? For too much wine? Is our optimism from our father? Do I get my anger and insecurity from my mother? We can belong to a unit that exudes happiness and safety, but we all still have our monsters.
Our family members get the backstage view of our lives. They see the best and worst in us. What better art form can we find that examines the complicated nature of family than poems about family? Michael J. A family is like a circle.
The connection never ends, and even if at times it breaks, in time it always mends. A family is like the stars. Families are those who help, who support and always care. A family is like a book. A family is many things.
With endless words that show who they are and what they do and how they teach you so you know.

But even if this happens, your family will always be. They help define just who you are and will be a part of you eternally. Eve L. Last summer, two discrete young snakes left their skin on my small porch, two mornings in a row. Instead, every hour I told my son to stop with his incessant back-chat.
I peeled. We lived on greens and back-fat and biscuits. My Aunt Maud scrubbed right through the linoleum. My daddy was a Northerner who played drums and chewed tobacco and gambled.Next Poem. It was a very good poem. It reminded me of my childhood. When we did not have much money but we had eggs from our chicken's house. We have plenty of fruits and vegetables and We have plenty of fruits and vegetables and big Mom would started cooking at 3 pm ready for dad to come home at 5 pm.
Children helped doing the dishes before it got dark. No electricity, no microwave, no money but we were so happy. It reminded me of my childhood growing up and the fond memories of my mom who passed away January 7,who was by the way a very good cook and that is one of the things we miss most about her.

Just Say No To Family Values

Related Categories.The bonds created between aunts and uncles with their nieces are unique and special. Let the amazing girl in your life know how much she means to you with a personal poem for a niece in a card or on a decorative wall hanging. An aunt and niece relationship can feel a lot like a mother-daughter relationship. However, aunts often enjoy some relationship benefits grandparents get, like not having to be strict or dole out consequences.
Tell your niece how much you treasure the friendship you've created with these loving verses. When a woman has a daughter, she becomes a mom. But, when she becomes an aunt, there's a friendship type of bond. I don't have to tell you what to do, or how to comb your hair. I just get to joke and laugh whenever you are there.
If life treats you unfairly, or you're at your wit's end, I will be the voice of reason for my niece, my friend. I did not choose to be your aunt, you were a gift for me from God. I will guide you like a grandmother.
I will love you like a mom. I will laugh with you like a sister. I will care for you if ever they were all gone. Who can pick you up when you are down and turn your lips to a smile from a frown? Who can give you sage advice and give you cause to think twice?
It's all part of the family plan, because aunts can. Who plays tricks and jokes on you and laughs when you pull them too? Who takes you out to have a ball and shops with you at the mall? No matter what or who you become I'll always be one proud aunt because you are my niece and we don't use the word "can't. Some uncles serve as the only strong male influence in a girl's life.
Others get to be that fun, cool guy their niece can turn to when she feels no one else will understand. Share your loving sentiments with the amazing niece in your life to help keep her confidence up and give her something to smile about. There is no greater gift, for an uncle like me, who has no daughters to love dearly, than the next best thing, that unique missing piece, who fills my heart with joy, it can only be my niece.Sign in with Facebook Sign in options.

Gambling was Recreation,Not a way to earn a Living. And a Wife was a woman who bore your Children. The lessons I had learned, the feelings of groundedness and belonging that have been woven into my character there, would be my companions on the journey. At a point in the not-too-remote future, the stout heart of Queen Elizabeth II will cease to beat. At that precise moment, her firstborn son will become head of state, head of the armed forces, and head of the Church of England.
In strict constitutional terms, this ought not to matter much. The English monarchy, as has been said, reigns but does not rule. From the aesthetic point of view it will matter a bit, because the prospect of a morose bat-eared and chinless man, prematurely aged, and with the most abysmal taste in royal consorts, is a distinctly lowering one. Hug the people you care about and make sure they know that you care and appreciate them.
Make it known to your friends and family that you love them. Any man or woman worth anything believes in his own race as he believes in his own family. But because you believe in your own race or in your own family doesn't mean you want to injure other races or other families. When her laughter faded, she glanced at Kaylin. I thought that the Shadows had not touched me.
Kaylin understood this, as well. Which part of it pains you? When we win free—by gaining our name, by crossing a bloody bridge—we still live in a cage of scars. I hate that they still define me. There was something about Bellusdeo that she liked. It took me years to understand that I could find—and make—another. Always face them by standing up for what is right and you will feel strong.
If you do not stand strong, people will pity you, and then you lose something adults call dignity. Never accept pity. No one on earth is better than anyone else. Siefring, An Important Day.
