My Older Brother

My older brother is someone, I want to punch in the mouth,
But I can't, because he'd knock me out,

My older brother is a scapegoat, when I've done wrong,
My older brother is motivation, helping me, keep keepin' on,

My older brother is a role model, if he likes it or not,
Showing me how to overcome adversity, against any odds,

I could go for days, giving kudos, and building him up,
But when it comes to giving him praise, there's never enough,

My older brother, can jump, clear over the moon,
He'd show you how, but he has other things to do,

My older brother has forgotten, more than I'll ever learn,
Dedicated to hard work, everything he owns, he earned,

He is my inspiration, he showed me that no mountain, is ever too tall,
He made it to where he is today, by refusing to fall,

I've never said this to him, I assumed he already knew,
For the little things you've unknowingly taught me, many thanks go to you,

No matter how tough, I think I am, he's that much tougher,
I'm 6'6 he's 6'2, yet, I'll always look up to my brother
