Young brother

Street lights, cast shadows of you, in my eternal memories and mind. As I watch you trod through, the rough roads below, strolling true, with destiny and time. Clinched fists, compliment, the angerly scowl upon your face. Ready to do battle, if anyone steps out of place. As you proceed, to make your way through, the challenging streets, eye contact, is made briefly, between you and me. I can see you, through me, young brother, and me through you. 'Cause many nights I've walked, below the same lights, clinched fisted, too.

    wow,, thank you for the comment... really it's a nice gesture to consider us family... after all it is my family that makes me feel like that... Thanks for the soul lifter... As far as brothers I disowned my own.. You are a very talented man... And i'm just a silly girl... I'm glad you protect your own... have yourself a good night,.. LINDA
