They are the people
You cannot choose
You are born into one
So it’s either win or lose

When you are a little child
They are your life
You cling to them at all times
Particularly in moments of strife

You family back then
Is what keeps you alive
Not just with food and shelter
But by filling you with hope for life

As a teenager
You tend to grow apart
Your peers become more important
And your parents are old farts

You can have arguments
As you want to stay out long
Your family is quite boring
And the bonds of friendship are far too strong

As a young adult
When you move away from home
You realise the value of family
And all that your parents have done

You become closer to them
Even if miles apart
And the bond continues to grow
As your own family you start

It’s a pity that we argue
It’s a pity that we fight
When we are young and naive
Most things with family don’t seem right

We make friends as we grow up
While some may go, others will stay
But one thing’s for sure
That one’s family will remain
