family like strangers and strangers like family
« on: December 09, 2014, 06:31:10 PM »
When I was growing up
My parents treated me like a stranger
No love, no warmth, just roles to pretend to be

When I got married
My inlaws treated me like family
Love, warmth, and roles that came natural to them

Now I am older
If someone was to ask me today
Where do you belong?

I would answer
With a heartbeat
My inlaws, my new found parents, my family
