THOUGHTS ON WHY WE CALL IT "EXTENDED FAMILY"

By Marcelo Ferreira Gustafsson

Instinct
to establish
formalities
connections
silver threads
to mend traumas
anomalies
evaporates
in debates
 
An extended family consists of people
we find to fulfill the roles; of support
when it’s not present
Allegiance
sweet tart taste
on tongues
in negotiations
arguments in form
without beating
fingers red
With love
They took the opportunity to thank their
“extended family”
No one can speak to the magnitude of
”better than those who have been
kicked out and are
homeless
Whether you are completely rejected
paradigms 
are fluid
do not forget
to robe
your next
and cherry-pick gold from lead
to store in pockets
Extended families
often provide

increased tension
This can look like almost
anything and in
most cases is defined to
be purposefully broad
and encompassing.
Chosen families are
meant to pull people
together, not shut them
out through ridged
definitions

A chain is joined
and forms a ring
in celebration
to the importance of parts
somewhere to sleep, a
place to vent, a
support-system and
unconditional love
Tell us your story and we'll tell you ours
we’ll all ears, take your time; 
The increase in
individualism combined
with the necessity for
social support
The increase in
individualism combined
with the necessity for
social support
