    Ohana

    Family, a small valuable necessity I shall covet for an eternity.
    Hawaiians call it Ohana, family forever.
    What do we do when there is no one to lift you off the floor after a fall.
    I am grateful that I will never know this feeling.

    How do the unlucky ones survive without ohana.
    Family, the guardians of your life.
    Those that will go to war on your word.
    Stand back to back without question.
    Surrender their lives for the simple fact that you are family.

    The peace my soul carries knowing that out there a legion stands watching.
    That everyday I have the ability to call for any reason and get an answer.
    Ohana, family forever.

    I'm an island warrior of noble birth with an army of the same blood coursing through them.
    Ohana, family forever.
    Loved and cherished corrected on occasian.
    Proud and fullfilled in the knowledge my family is always there.
    Ohana, family
    FOREVER................

    You are right everyone needs to feel the unconditional love of family forever. glad you enjoyed my little ramble.......

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
