Charity starters


Charity starts at home don't we say?

Be kind to your kith and kin come what may.

A family's not only your safe haven

Tis pals your very own roots

Water these shoots with love devoid of hate

So they bear you sweeter fruits.



Maybe you'd say that's not so easy

but perhaps that's coz you just too busy

Or your clock just don't chime

for quality family time?

For if you can't make time for a letter or a hug

Then let my poem give your conscience a gentle tug.



And if this may sound like a very preachy homily

Deserves much more mention and affection the family

If you can make time for so many other things

some of them not even worthwhile

Try discover the happiness family brings

Just a tad modify that routine lifestyle.



My words in crystal clear clarity

sing compassion is likewise a charity

Charity need not be for strangers only

Find out who needs help in kindred and family

Ties of kinship severe not

Value the relations you've got

Your siblings, cousins from your family tree

and all else that you call family.



What supports and buttresses your family tree are your very roots

And what keeps the tree living on are your beloved offshoots

Love and regard is required to reap the sweeter fruits
