Family
{A Poem} 

Family.

Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows

It doesn't matter where your from
or what color you are 

Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows

It may be hard
but it can be fun
so just push on
until this day is done

Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows

You may be from Mexico, Russia or Ghana 
or even from the city of Hosaena

Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows

Some may gawk and some may stare
but they shouldn't care
it doesn't matter what you wear
or how you look 'cause





Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows

You may be black or you may be white
but it doesn't matter cause family is family no matter what!

Family is when love flows
and everybody knows
'cause your love for each other shows
