The Pillar



A good family unit the foundation of society 
Without it character and morals are naught
Lessons of struggle and love learned here
How to survive with strength taught 

As wife and mother no need for attention 
Outsiders see her role as passive
Her needs are for the family’s success 
Love and righteousness her motive

While that solid rock must initially be laid
She will reinforce the stalwart man
As base the man the groundwork of the family 
As the pillar she strengthens their stand

For the man is kept upright by the woman
His nature to provide for his family
She will stand by and support in unison 
Whether in the background or actively 

The pillar supported base and top
She gave the base everything it stood for
The roof supported by her strength 
The pillar made the family so much more
