when i come home


My father's an honest man
Frustrated but never sits, only stands
Doesn't allow you the silver stand
Does not with force, but a guiding hand..

My mother's a strong force
Has persevered through despair
Always there, always aware
Always fair to her son in ways more than one

My sister's a dedicated lady
Works two jobs to only get by
All of the work she does doesn't pay..
the way through a marriage today

These be all of the people from which I learn
And despite my pitfalls, I stand stern
Not willing to forget what my family..
Has handed me, love is the answer now
And the only place to be..when i come home
