Death of a family

Drinking and fighting.
Fighting and drinking.
When does it ever end?
What ever happened to the word 'Family'?
Does it exist any more?
Mother against daughter.
Daughter against Mother.
How can you hate your own blood?
When the Matriarch of our
family died, the beautiful rug
that was our family unraveled with
her. Now, I feel as if the family
rug has unraveled down to me.
I am now left to mourn the tragic
death of my great grandmother and
my family. Is there anybody out
there who can save me from this
ocean of despair?

FILIPINO OFWs

Filipinos abroad working for their family
While sharing in the growth of the country
Are often called the “makabagong bayani”
With their immense help in the economy.

Even to my own and ever dearest family
You’re family is indeed our own bayani
For the kindness you’ve shared unselfishly
Helped us a lot in the needs of our family.

Life here in our very own land and destiny
Is becoming harder and harder everyday
With the crisis besetting our economy
And poor peace and order in the country.

I do wish that we’ll have the opportunity
To follow you in your foreign destiny
Through our siblings who want someday
To find a greener pasture in other country.

People like you whose God is in their family
And so faithful in the call of the Almighty
To share their love for the poor and needy
Radiate prudent act of greatness and nobility.

Everyday we fervently pray to the Almighty
For your good health, fortune and safety
As we harbor to treasure your great sympathy
And kindness which you gave unselfishly.

Family Pictures

Don’t you just love old family pictures?
Dug out from dusty box or chest
I don’t think there is anything else
That can compare – they’re the absolute best

There is nothing like those black and whites
The photos from the past
Of course we know from history
That nothing ever lasts

Time moves on, of course it does
But pictures can live without end
They keep our families together
They are one thing that we can depend

Family pictures are such treasures
They take us back in time
They put us in the moment
And let the past unwind

As I go through several lifetimes
And look at my family’s history
I’m so thankful I have these photos
They help unravel many family mysteries!

The Not So Perfect Family

The perfect family
Or so it seems
All the children
Shining like beams

They are smart, athletic
Witty and fun
Loved by all
Hated by none

The dads a teacher
The mom runs the store
They volunteer in the community
Always helping the poor

Their accomplishments
Shine in public light
Nothing they do wrong
Everything right

This is the model
Many inspire to be
Although this family isn’t perfect
That they’ll never see

How do I know
You may not have guessed
Im part of that family
And let me tell you
We’re no better than the rest

Dads never home
He only has time for his friends
Time with the family
He has yet to spend

Not the marriage she wanted
She’s always sad
Mom’s always invisible
To my dad

Except for the times
When he comes home late at night
The smallest thing in the world
Can cause the biggest fight

Three younger sibling
Two always cry
Have to be strong for them
In the face of loves lie

Why be together
When distant at heart
For all these years
They should have been apart
But that they wont do
For the youngest three
Who still live at home
Life unimaginable, it would be

So my parents pretend, everythings okay
Although trapped together forever
To give us the lives we live
Feelings of true love, for them felt never

The perfect family
Not quite what it seems
This thought to us children
Nothing more then a dream
