Family Ties


Such a wonder
is family
they can make you mad
or fill you with glee
My family's broken
but that won't slow me down
Because I know when I need them
they'll still be around
my mother and father
are broken up too
with all this commotion
I don't know what to do
I hear my mother cry at night
I hear her kick and scream
and all I can do
is get stuck in between
I don't see much of my brother
haven't heard from my sister
I've felt such pain inside
because I know I'll miss her
it's said that you lose your memory
after you get old
but what can you do when it's all that you have?
that's as valuable as gold
but I'll tell you this
this is what I'll always remember
it was the hardship that broke us apart
but it's love that still holds us together.
