Selecting A Family Poem

Family poems are not the same breed as traditional poems. Everyone at the table be willing to invest in a conversation about the poem. What child willingly listens to his parents read a poem with suggestive themes.

A family poem can also be related directly to the family itself, a topic which an entire slew of writers have written about in detail. Why not share a poem every Sunday at dinner? It's a great way to get your family

***family poem 1***

Suddenly Loved

family poems 1

Living in a hazy world,
With brief specks of clarity.
Dwelling only in my mind,
With scary moments of sanity.
It's nice to know that when I go,
Somebody might just miss me.
Cause in the hatred all around,
There is one spring of purity.
All this time I felt alone,
That it's odd to be loved so suddenly.

I love my family so much ~ Mahfooz Ali

family poems 2

To be apart of a family like mine
is so divine
where love is shown
hurt is shared
our love for each other is never impaired

we talk
we laugh
we cry
but we are a family
and we do it all together
for as a family
we do it all as one

you hurt one
you hurt all
and as a family unit
we will all stand tall
for we are family
a family full of strength
a family full of love
a family no one can touch
that, s why I love my family so much.

Breathe the smoke filled air
Wishing you could just care, enough
To see you're all I need
Waiting patiently for nothing,
but you keep waiting to be someone else
What is happening?

Mother may I cry upon your shoulder..?
While you wait inside the car
crying softly
broken bottles filled with pain
and crushing fists aiming at mirrors.
Were all turning insane.

Where did the rest of us go
off to be new again.
I guess this is the best I can pretend
There's no faking were all breaking down
under the cold ground
When I die, die with me.

Mother, Why are we screaming
At faces we used to know
Hello past please come back
The future's killing us slow.

My family ~ by Dineo Malwale

My family, my inspiration
My family, my motivator to the
Success of my dreams and wishes.
The ruler to my territory, the president
To my world, the key to my door.
My family, my motivator.

My family, my blood.
My family, my identity,
The identity of my mother, my father,
My sister, my brother, my grannies, my aunts,
And my uncles, and my wife, and children to be.
My family, my identity.

My family, my family
With you everything is possible,
With you family shelter is there,
Food is there, clothes are here
Because am wearing them.
My family, my family.

My family, my mother
My mother of reality, who
Gave life to a young boy and
Fed him during noon and light,
My mother, who is my doctor
To my pains.
My mother a wife to her husband,
My mother a mother to her children.
My mother of reality.

My family, my father
My father of rules, faith and believe.
The king, who rules his sons and daughters
To be the best, the king who sleeps last after
The family sleeps.
My father a husband to his wife
My father a father to his children.
My family my father.

My family, my siblings
My sister, the first leaf to
Blossom from the family tree,
The first that arrived in 1986(18th of August) .
My family my sister.
My brother, the second man who
Joint the family tree in 1989 day of
29 January.
My family, my brother.
Myself, the third and last
Man to this family tree, born
1991 day of 31 December.
My family, myself.
And my little sister, the fourth and last
Female to blossom from this
Family tree, the year 1998, the
Month of January, the day of 31th.
My family, my little sister
And that’s my family, my siblings.

Family where, and where would I have
Been without you family, family
I thank you.
