Big Brother

“Big Brother” Brother I grew up in front of your eyes I have seen you tear in silence You don’t have to hide your pain For I understand Why you can’t meet your mother’s gaze You have been brave Roaming the streets late at night We prayed for your safe return Each time you felt the need to be alone She broke your spirit Made you feel less than a man She convinced you that you were insane She broke you down Isolated you from family and friends Made you to sit and wait while she sleeps the day away Your soft nature in her eyes a weakness She knew how to pull your strings And have you dance to her tune You have endured her physical and mental abuse Silently loosing yourself Your business and dreams took second place Dancing to her every tune Waiting on her hand and foot Withholding herself Whilst having affairs at work The Great career woman She broke you totally Drove you over the edge Working late nights to support her shopping sprees Exhaustion drove you to crystal meth Introduced by a friend She boasting to her friends Her raised voice your submission Belittling and insulting you in front of your staff You know what, Yahya You have come a long way Finally you have made it back You have conquered all the hurt Your future bright Success in the palms of your hands Rise above it all Show what you are made of You were once a self made man You can do it again The family believes in you 23:02:13
