As I Go

My definition of family is a little different. 
I pick up my family as I go. 
My dad made the decision not to be in my life a long time ago. 
And he took half my family with him. 
My new family from my aunt's side moved back to Mexico. 
Never to be heard from again. 
My favorite baby cousin isn't allowed to come by. 
Because of a family feud I had nothing to do with. 
But I have a new sister. 
They say I was meant to live my life as an only child. 
But I know people who search their whole lives for a best friend like that. 
So how dare you take more family away from me?
Families aren't always built by blood, or by marriage. 
Sometimes you just pick family up along the way. 
When you, and your giant family, try to tell me who my family is, it will never have an effect on me. 
Because however big my family grows, those ideas will never be a part of it.
