Poem-a-Day 2017 Writer’s Digest Challenge #13. Theme: Family

Family, Defined

“…no other success can compensate for failure in the home.”
–David O. McKay, the Ninth President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

For the Mormons,
it was the path to salvation.

For the Christians,
it was till death.

For those without,
it was friends.

For those with bad ones,
it was never again.

For those with good ones,
it was often history, repeated.

For me,
it was all of these things
and none of these things.
