Most any old man can tell you, most any old man at all,
Who has lived through all sorts of weather, winter and summer and fall,
That riches and fame are shadows that dance on the garden wall.

Family within Aboriginal Society or any Society for that matter,
Can be both often be your strenght or weakness,
Depends on how you get along with them,
In selfish pride or meakness.

They can often can lift you up or bring you down,
For they are often a fussy lot of people,
You just never ever know,
They can can either take down to the deepest hole or up high to the highest steeple

What can we do with or without our Family?
Nothing and Everything you may or may not desire,
But it all depends you know on who is your Family,
For they either keep you down or they will take you higher.
