Verse Without Gifs (For Verse With Gifs, Scroll Below)


The absence of your father doesn't mean you cannot be one
Just be there for your children, building, healing 'til you see some...
Progress in the modest parent process teaching freedoms
But limitations, and consequences, values also feed 'em...


The aspects of a family, definition and true meaning
Is not based upon lab tests of genetics shown on blue screenings...
Blood's thicker than the water, but most fluid is your being
The people who care about you, with a love farthest from fleeting...


I'm my brother's keeper, won't neglect my sisters either
Taking care of all my loved ones, never be a wife beater...
Family trees are slow-grown, steady strong as White Cedars
Branching out, but still connected, roots are like a flight deeper...


Get wisdom and true manners, Grandma, Grandpa's got the answers
Remember, and making memories, lessons they share Do Matter...
Show gratitude to Mother, Aunts and Uncles, all your Cousins
Nephews, nieces are the sweetest, whether one or more than dozens...

Hi @verbal-d i am @renny-krieger from venezuela
Very good verses dedicated to love and the family, what they give us as a legacy between verses and good company of the word of the Most High.....


Los árboles genealógicos son de crecimiento lento, firmes y fuertes como el cedro blanco....

Un fortificado duramen de experiencia, de amor incondicional y sublime. Albura joven fomentada en los valores y la armonía cuyos xilemas representan el pentagrama donde se producirán hermosos sonidos que permanecerá incorruptible en los compases del tiempo.

A heart fortified with experience, unconditional and sublime love. Young sapwood fostered in values and harmony whose xylem represents the staff where beautiful sounds will be produced that will remain incorruptible in time.

Thank you very much for your insightful poetic response, greetings from Germany :)
May God bless you continually and your family

Here is the verse performed over music if you like hiphop
