Everyone these days is so busy, the family unit has been lost.

 Busy people rush here and there

Their faces reveal a distant stare

Anymore,  time,  is a delicate word

The singing birds are rarely heard

What would it take to slow them down?

Some answers aren't easily found

Take a moment to look inside and you will see

The important thing,  is a family

Take the extra time to show you care

Increase your awareness,  if you dare

The answer you will find

If priorities are redefined

Your life will take an amazing turn

Enthusiasm will inside you burn

The happiness that's been suppressed

Surprisingly will begin to manifest

With a song in your heart

And a smile on your face

The world for you,  will be a happier place.

So eloquently put, and a challenge to take to heart, indeed. You have put this priority in words that are very easy to read and ponder. Jesus said that where are treasure is, there will our heart be also,Karen.
THIS poem shows the way to a lasting treasure.

We need to spend more time together as family; seems that this has been lost by far too many (including mine; the only two who keep in contact with me are my twin sister, whom I live with, and our brother, who calls us every month to say howdy; the two other sisters don't even bother. Sad.). Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(

Nice rhyme and rhythm to get across an important message.

So well written and expressed Karen, this is true society in a whole is rushing about and have forgotten priorities. The family unit is not what it used to be. The one thing I managed to impress upon my son's is dinner time will be spent at the table not in front of the Telly. That is a time to gather and talk about the days events. Showing love and care and a time of personal communion.

Wonderfully written and thought provoking for all to read.
