blood is not thicker than water!

just because
      you were born into a family
            doesn’t necessarily
     mean you belong
blood ties,
          don’t keep   
                anyone fastened
our earth
      affords us
              our ohana
i gather my sisters
      before the harvest moon  
            for a moment of appreciation
      empathy has diminished
amidst ignorance and stereotype
              women can be incredibly
    is not the time
                  to asses blame
but to genuinely
        reach a higher level
of functional prehension
                one might
         render negativity
               to float into the strata
   similar to a long breath
            that’s been held
                  for an eternity
