Why are lines so think so fine
line between love and hate
between real and fake
blood and water
business and family
co-workers become relyed on brothers
Family act like your two different species
they just cloned ya to look alike
working so hard for every penny
but cant save any
family stay in your wallet
trading in the lint from your pocket
 
We strive harder to make more
live a life we can afford
the question?
can we cut family out for sanity
can we plead contempt 
for genetic exile
it plagues the brain
are we really created equal
then what do dna strands
really change
not behavior nor rude remarks
give me mine tones
hanging up the phone
in your ear
as if conversation was
needed like air
if this is the treatment
black sheep me
call me the outcast
my sanity might last
a smile might live
the leave it blank
when asked Next of Kin
dont worry about descendants
it can be a new generation
we only identify through last name
all mentality seems to have to be paid anyway
to say family thinks alike 
look out for each other right..
again a line that's so thin
it escapes sight....
