Family – March 2011

Family

i could say why is it,
that our family
seems to sail in choppy waters
but it is the nature of family
those,
interwoven complex relationships
feelings…
of love, of duty
of wondering if in fact
we are thrown together
in a whirlpool
of often contrasting emotions
it is never easy
sometimes it is a bloody mess
and,
at times i have felt like the bit part player
or the sub on the bench
sometimes i have put distance
but sometimes it was not meant
here we are again,
wearing our tribal make up
standing together
this family, and even that term
seem complicated
and even problematic
