One day we are born and the trumpet sounds
When mother, father, grandparents and family rejoice
The baby cries and all are glad for the their voice
When all is right family ties abound.
However not every child is fortunate in this world
To the wealthy options in a hospital setting
Or to be born to two parent who love over them and are fretting
You see there are unwed mothers in this world.
My journey started with a young mother who had courage you see
To give birth and to give me up
To adopted parents who choice me and their love never stops
Now I am older and my family ties make me strong and free.
My parents love Jesus in their daily walk
So do I and my birth mom as we bless each other while we talk.
Family is what you make of it and to love one another
Yes family can be a complicated thing with our strengths and flaws
However the goal is to accept each other for who we are not with judgement and laws
All we have to do is follow the golden rule and love our sister and brother.
If our family ties are strong we can make it through this life
From birth to death we only have each other
To love on, seek wisdom with and go on this journey following the Heavenly Father
So be there for whoever you call family in this life.
