Shallow, meaningless word.
If family is those you trust the most,
Then family is your closest friends,
If family is intangible,
It's an idea,
An image in one's mind,
A utopia -
An unachievable dream
One lies awake at 2 a.m. in search for.
If family is dysfunctional,
Then it is society at large:
A web of interconnected individuals
Bound by a common need for survival.
