This poem just came to me as I was meditating this morning. That’s the beauty of poetry, it’s pure inspiration conveyed through the language of the heart.
The theme here is family as a catalyst for personal growth. We’re all here to support each other. And essentially we’re all family.
Family in Flight (A Poem)
Went from a fist full of drugs*
To blissful with hugs
From sister to cuz
Never missin’ the love
Through the mist with my bruv**
All our missions are tough
Momma listens to us
With beneficent trust
Meet me father (farther)
Into the gust
The wind is whiskin’ us up
*”Fist full of drugs” refers to always holding a beer (alcohol is legal drug). It’s also a reference to a closed fist, signifying being closed-off and stressed/holding tension. Stress is basically a drug epidemic in our society. Plus, “fist full f drugs” just sounds good as something to rhyme with.
**Bruv is slang for brother.
I hope you enjoyed that poem and it inspired you in some way.
One last thing: tell someone you love them today.
