More Free Than Family

You are a river
Searching for the vast ocean
You imagine you came from your mother
But really you came through her
And you came from
The same vast ocean
You search for

Don’t allow family to completely own your life
Our parents are the conduit
As we are the conduit for those
We give passage to
There is great honor and joy in this
And we have reason to be grateful

But we are more vast than family
And more free than family allows

Remember this.
