“Our family is the proverbial egg that we were hatched from. Everything about who we are, both our nature and nurture comes from our family. Often in western society, we stray far from our family and may not talk to them for years at a time. We may feel that we have nothing in common with them. We may choose to run away from our roots because they are too painful to face. Ultimately however, our past holds the key to our future. If we do not face where we come from, we will have difficulty understanding our present and future.”
The above quoted remark is a copy of a statement from one of the many web pages of the website Family Friend Poems.
I would like to suggest you take a look at the section of the website that has this opening statement:
“Our collection of Family Poems describe the special relationship between brothers and sisters, the love of children for their mother or father, the devotion of a mother for her child, the special relationship between a grandmother and grandfather and their grandchildren.”
