Other Roots

welcome to the family is how you take it
embrace acceptance as an actual person
qualified to be one of us when I doubted
found when I had lost myself or a zoo-like
public showing of freakish possible forms
defined by cages marveling at each other
when not seriously annoyed I was touched

embrace the concept but reality is I have
my own children brought from elsewhere
our own history not same deep other roots
less in your face maybe that's why I didn't
cry when I would if the groom were mine
marrying yet another family linking world
