To me, family has always been
who you made it. It didn’t matter
if they were blood or marriage,
kindred spirit or tribe.

Family to me,
has always been the ones
who I held space for in my lives,
who held space back.

The ones you could not see
for a zillion years,
who pick right back up with you,
no beats missed.

Every day I’m grateful,
my Star and True North by my side,
old friends and newer ones around me,
but mostly, God stringing us all together.
