 Exquisite Expressions by Exrea

Family 7/21/80

It makes no difference how many of you
To thy own ‘Family' always be true
There will be times, I've no doubt
One of the kids will feel left out
A daughter or son as the case might be
The daughter gets one and the son gets three

There should be no hard feelings because he got more
The time will come to even the score
There is no reason for anger or greed
Each will receive according to need
These feelings of jealousy, anger and greed
Should not be in our hearts like quack grass weed

We cannot harbor these weeds in our heart
They must be hoed and spade out to make a fresh start
There can be no picking order, as in the animal's domain
If one is established, it will only bring pain
As a family you see we must stick together
Especially in hard times or stormy weather

So before we lose our family pride
Try to understand and put hurt feelings aside
I just cannot comprehend just how it can be
For a family to split and no longer be
So after I die and the will has been read
Please abide by my wishes just as it said

Material things should not break up a family
Dwell on Him, so you don't go wryly
A word of warning a word to the wise
A family is too great to jeopardize!
So if there's any ensuing conflict or grief
I won't be a Casper, I'll be a wraith…...
