The Top Of The Family Tree

Top of the family tree Looking down on young life The future what is there? A chance or more chances To become more~improve The deceased press down hard Train up the children Teach the youth what's right Show them correct way Point them to the light Through hands of love guide The very top Now there's freedom No! Now first comes Obligation Tenderness Gentleness Listening Ever Love~Guide Now!

    This is a form that is difficult to construct without sound contrived or forced. Good job. I'm not sure I'd even care to attempt it, so you'll get all my referrals.

    Interesting start, let me know when it is finished. I always think of the decendants as the roots of the tree that allow the children to branch out and reach to the sky.

    Beautiful Sara. The first five lines give so much hope. But then the last line -- a burden of a failed history? I think it reads well as it is. When you finish it, are you going to develop the last line? I can't wait to read your complete vision. Peace...Sam
