The Family: My Proclamation

Family. The people we are sent here to be raised by, the sculptors of our future, of ourselves, of everything we are and will become. the ones we are sealed to, pre-planned and pre-destined. those we "chose" to become our protector, benefactor, friend. The guides weve been given on our path of personal development and growth.
Although......What were you thinking!? what were we all thinking? when calculating pro's and con's what was our focus? what source were we given during this "test" to help us mould and perfect our individual decisions from?. The evidence of who these people were to become, who they are, what they were, who they would have been.....or who they truly are in thier which thier soul lies. When the decay of the world gives up the battle, when theres nothing left, stripped bare of agency, there lies the truth of a persons being. when the pureness of white blinds our view of emotion, throught the veil, then will we see who these people truly are? From that moment did we make our decision?
As this question may be merely trivial to some, think of those who may sincerely consider this thought, those who find the task to obtain happiness in the home a daunting mountain simply not worth climbing, that they may have seen crumble one too many times. those who when surrounded by family, have no-one to turn to, no-one to confide in, no-one to delve into the deepest domain of emotion and trust. these are the people who ask this question.
One thing we all fail to realise is that your parents are not yor parents, your father is not your father. your father/mother/brother/sister are all simply the flickering, faded lights that remain of the beacon they once were, and may one day live to become. Like moths to a flame the beacons you so eagerly left your perfect expanse to be in the prescence of... your family. these people, as all of us also, have been victims to the benumbed world that awaits just beyond your front door, subject to the choices of others who scar and create the ripples in the waters of our own indivudual lives, that sooner or later will reach our shores or the tip of our tongue to continue on that vicious circle.
For myself i find my happiness and my domains reached when in the prescence of friends, far and near. until the time comes when divine reason allows me to obtain the chance to meet these people, my family, unmasked and untainted, the immaculte beings i came here in search of who i have not yet found. Until then i live in and through the companions that i followed my feet to find, my only examples, my representations of all i can become, My friends.

I don't know how to say what I want to say to you Rob as I cannot express myself the way you can, I did not know you had this talent for writing and yet, knowing you a little, I am not surprised. I have just read all your posts and I am speechless! (well apparently not totally speechless but you know what I mean!) I remember once you wrote words to a song for someone close to me, you were very young but I remember then thinking "wow" and reading all these entries on your blog, I'm thinking again "wow" :-) Sally
