Family is an odd thing

They're the people you grow up with

And the ones who teach you how to live

Your parents are supposed to love you

They teach you necessary life skills

And protect you from danger

Older siblings teach you how to have fun

How to make friends

And sometimes are your best friends

Younger siblings can be annoying

But even they teach you patience and responsibility

So you can be ready for life

Family can be weird and crazy

And may not even be actual blood relatives

But no one ever said that's wrong

You may not have been raised by the people

Who brought you into the world

But you did have family

A family who loves you

People who will never let go of you

And someone who will always support you
