Family is Defined with Love

A family is defined
Not by genetics.

This definition is
Far more complex.

A family can be
One, two, or many more.

It is not isolated
By race, creed, or sex.

A family’s boundaries are
Defined by love an inclusion.

Oh yes, forgiveness
And tolerances are there.

Christ loved without
Exclusion.

Thus we are
All one family.

Christianity is not alone defining love as a basic tenet of their religion. If I remember correctly Joseph Campbell, American Mythologist, felt world religions had more similarities than differences.
