To My Younger Brother

This is to my younger brother-
I know we don’t share the same mother,
But this heart inside me I own,
And I know you hone,
The very same one as me,
I know this complexity,
And you must understand,
Try however hard you can,
I hold deep love for you,
And never want you to go through,
The struggles I did,
You’re still a kid,
But I know you’ve got a good mind,
It’s something often hard to find,
See we share more than DNA,
Realize we share the way,
To live in a head of creativity,
Words are our way to be;
You see my brother,
We may not share,
The very same hair,
But our eyes,
Hold surprise,
In the very same style,
We should spend awhile,
Together-
It’s so rough for me to face,
That this is now my place,
And I’m such a distance from you,
Was never around as you grew,
And you may think I’m nuts,
But this is what’s what,
My explanation means nothing,
But I can tell you one thing,
We’ll be eye to eye,
For the very first time,
I’ll lean close and whisper,
It’s nice to meet you I’m your sister.
