Family Love

Does the saying “stranger danger” ring bells

The phrase is what we say when someone we don’t know is scaring us

But what if that person is our own family

Trying to scare us, hurt us, tear us down

Does that mean we don’t know that person any more?

Are they now the stranger danger I fear?


Did you hear… He did it

He’s the big shot that he aspired to be

Proving his oppressors wrong

He learned to walk on his own two feet

How funny it is

He stayed true to himself

Showing he’s more powerful than “Family Love” could ever be


You wanted me to fail

You hoped I would trip

You prayed your words would keep me imprisoned

But I stand tall and break through each link

It’s funny how I call it “Family Love”

But I don’t know what family or love really is…
