Blood Ain't Always Thicker

Sometimes family hurt you,
Sometimes they be your downfall.
Sometimes family take away all the options you have,
Sometimes they don't believe in you.
They hurt you in way you wouldn't expect,
Why am I feeling betrayed?
Feelings being hurt over and over,
You thought you could trust them.
They supposed to always be there,
When you think of them you shed tears.
Everybody bring you down and shut you out,
Your feelings numb you don't feel no more.
They say they love you,
But you can't tell.
What is family?
What is blood?
