Feeling Secure and Other Feelings

Wanting to Belong

Most people seek out family,
A place to feel secure –
This feeling doesn’t lessen
As we gradually mature

Sometimes, the groups we join would like
To shape our thoughts and form us;
And what we give up to fit in
Can be a thing enormous

‘Cause joining for approval
Is a tricky situation:
For we will feel as we feel, with
Or without, validation
