Family raises you

Family feeds you

Family clothes you

Family nurtures you

And instills their morals and beliefs

Family watches you


Family is scared for you

Family protects you

Family disciplines you

To be the boy they envision

Family pisses you off


Family is too nosey

Family babies you

Family doesn’t understand

That growing up means going

Against their wishes

Family is there for you


Family doesn’t turn their back

Family supports you

Family respects you

For they don’t want to lose you

And want you to be who you are

Family is important


Family loves you endearingly

Family makes up who you will be

Family is your center

Family, matters to me
