Family & Friends

Philadelphia's symbol is the Liberty Bell,
even that has cracks; it's not as hard as a shell.
The bonds that keep a family together,
can sometimes be a thin as a feather.
Family can range from brotherly-love,
or can be as sweet as a beautiful dove.
Families go through different phases,
All the while, the parents get all the praises
from the children about their toys and foods
even if they're in different moods.
Family will always be there for one another
just like a sister to her brother.
Families range in various sizes,
but the real meaning of it all eventually rises.
Every crack or hole in a house
show the imperfections,
but every corner and crease
show the connections
that one family has.
It's not as smooth as New Orleans Jazz,
that's why God has created not only family, but friends.

Beautiful, I wish my older sibling would realize as easily as you did that fighting isn't worth it. Good job! I liked it.
