A while ago, I went away
scared and alone, spirits low,
full of ambition, dreams and doubt
but even if I achieve fortune and fame,
who’s to say I won’t still feel the same?
My love ones, players of fond memories,
am I important to them as they are to me?
We had fun, we had our games.
We have lives filled with shenanigans, laughter and tears.
Visiting infrequently, hopefully , happily
My parents are quasi-strict, quasi-there
My grandma is kind with religious flair
My siblings I annoy and are annoyed by in turn
My extended family both nebulous and firm
Their love is the greatest credit to my name.
It’s a family of Hicaps, Sons and daughters
Broken and glued with pieces wondrously made
A tumultuous and wonderful rollercoaster of emotions
Better than any wealth, power or fame
My family, the starting point of my acclaim.
