TATAY (Father)-
He’s the pillar of our strength
A man of few words
Tough but with a gentle heart

NANAY (Mother)-
Our beam of light; our comfort
In the darkest paths
She is always there to guide

The one who always listens
Kind but he could fight
With him my fears subside

She is the breath of fresh air
The youngest of three
Full of possibilities

Meanwhile, I-
Half crazy, half sane
Half evil, half kind
But one thing’s for sure
My family is my life


DAY 2:  Today, I challenge you to write a poem that takes the form of a family portrait. You could write, for example, a stanza for each member of your family. You could also find an actual snapshot of your family and write a poem about it, spending a little bit of time on each person in the picture. You don’t need to observe any particular form or meter. Happy writing!
