Love Is Alright

Family is supposed to love you,
For everything you are about.
They’re not suppose to condemn you,
Or disown you or throw you out.
So why is it you feel you must lie
To someone you swore you loved?
If I don’t qualify for your blessings,
Then why do you even bother to love?
I never wanted more of you
Than for you to be yourself.
I only wanted to love you
Simply because I couldn’t help myself.
