Family is who you are related to
And includes those who you relate to
Family is who you may feel obligated to care for
And includes those you will strive to aspire for
Family is who often have to listen to you
And includes those who will hear you
Family is who you have cried over
And includes those who will never say, "It's over"
Family is who we run from, even if we need them
And includes those we run to, even if we don't need them
Family is who you are born with
And includes those you would choose to die with
Family is what we define
And includes what we decide is divine.
