Family (m) Embers

Smouldering in my psyche since
My first cutting loose (umbilically)
Heritage, nationality (American questions)
Carried deep underbelly. (Enola gay)
Uncertainty unknowing. (atomics)
Adopting them as they adopted me 
Falteringly, haltingly (knowingly lying)
Clinging to her (at arms length)
This is at my corp(se)
Growing to love them (unknown emotion, that)
Parents, siblings, cousins
To learn all that love can be
(And a few things it isn’t)
Glowing warmth (potbelly stove)
From this, fan into flames
