One day in a world,
Severed from the roots of youth,
Alone but not lost.
| 'but not' presupposes that one is lost to begin with...|
'and not' is a spirited proclamation that even with that common misconception, one is not lost and somewhat with an air of triumph head forward into the grown up world.
Very uplifting write!

However, I do think that the importance of your family will never decrease, family is family and that is that.|
Great job, wonderfully written.

I like the positivity in the last line, and I actually like the line, but I think you could have stayed with the theme of roots to be consistant. I think you could really expand upon this piece. But as it is, I understand and appreciate it. |

it's nice to have independance, but it's a human necessity to have someone (like family) close by for support.

I got out on my own when I was 17 and I loved it, I still love it but sometimes I miss the closeness of a family.
