Always Have Family

Wed, 02/19/2020 - 11:26 -- hhlavka

When you have nothing

You should always have family

That’s what they say.

 

Your family should have your back

And love you 

No matter what.

 

Nothing can take you 

Away from them

Except. It can

 

Family can leave you.

Fathers flee

Mothers move aside

 

All of a sudden

You are so

So alone

 

There is no

Guarantee

That anyone will stay

 

Blood is nothing

Not a promise

Not a bond

 

You can choose

Who becomes your

Family

 

You don’t owe 

Your blood

Anything

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family

It was recently my 18th Birthday and I had to come to terms with the fact that I don't owe my family anything. I don't need to feel guilty for taking care of myself.
