Family Dynamics.

Michael A. Watkins 1965 (san diego)

The dynamics of a family
should revolve around there trust,
putting all differences aside-
for the greater good-that's Us,
our love cannot be broken
not by anger nor false pride,
but can only be recognized
by true feelings that's inside,
let nothing come between us
let our power be our voice,
speak what's in our hearts and minds
and let Love be our first choice,
a tree that makes a family
are the roots from which they came,
she sacrificed so we can live-
Blood of my Blood-Name of my Name.

By. Michael A. Watkins.
