The Power of Family

by a young woman at CSTC

The power of family
is the way that they hug you,
wrap you in their arms
and whisper ‘It’s gonna be okay.’

The power of family is
the way they’re there
when no one else is
through the hardest of times,
the worst of times,
all the times.

The power of family
is when you have an emotion
no one else seems to have
that seems to carry over
to the family members
that are right around you.

The power of family
can defeat an opponent
easily, without a struggle.

The power of family
is the strongest power
ever invented.
