There is something about family. They’ll misunderstand you. 

Take you for granted. 

Unlove and re-love you the most. 
They’ll make your insides twist, judge you and critique you. 

They’ll make you the butt of the joke. 

They’ll make you insecure in places where you never knew you were. 
// 
But come the dawn. 

Come the tears. 

Come the pain. 
They’ll empty out their bank accounts for you. 

They’ll catch the next flight out for you. 

They’ll stay the night, nights on end at your side. 
And so here’s to family.
