Ohana

Ohana

Vessel of nerve and strength,
Holds in, loads of contempt.
Shaped under angst and pain,
It leaps time and again.
Hands force, so enduring,
Moulded it splendidly.

Of your love, forever,
It will be a carrier.
It will hold not just tears,
But also will store smiles.
Once clay, now an apt piece,
My day, its hues brightens.

Breath, fresh one, it gives me,
And a reason to live.
Vessel, my family,
Fills me with gaiety.
Always, I will love it,
Till last, the dearest one.
