Charity Starters

Charity starts at home 
don't 
we say?
Be kind to your kith and 
kin 
come what may.

A family's not only your 
safe 
haven
Tis pals your very own 
roots
Water these shoots with 
love 
devoid of hate
So they bear you 
sweeter 
fruits.

Maybe you'd say that's 
not so 
easy
but perhaps that's coz 
you just 
too busy

Or your clock just don't 
chime
for quality family time?

For if you can't make 
time for 
a letter or a hug
Then let my poem give 
your 
conscience a gentle tug.

And if this may sound 
like a 
preachy homily
Deserves much more 
mention 
and affection the family

If you can make time for 
so 
many other things 
some of them not even 
worthwhile
Try discover the 
happiness 
family brings
Just a tad modify that 
routine 
lifestyle.

My words in crystal clear 
clarity
sing compassion is 
likewise a 
charity
Charity need not be for 
strangers only
Find out who needs help 
in 
kindred and family

Ties of kinship severe not
Value the relations 
you've got

Your siblings, cousins 
from 
your family tree
and all else that you call 
family.:-x

    This is a very deep and thought provoking write my friend. As we get older there is less time on the clock. God Bless. D.

    - Yes, we should all experience the closeness and love from the day we were born and the rest of life with, nearest family .... but ... - Unfortunately, it is not always the case in families .... - Today we often talk about, "time" .... a day has 24 hours - enough time to care and love! - A very well written poem my friend. - Share your time and love! - Have a nice weekend. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    This has great tick tock rhyme and a very deep meaning, it rings true without appearing didactic, a new word in my diction, it means vacant of preachy sermons, beautifully lovingly penned my dear, thank you for sharing xxx
