WHY BROTHER

Why brother, but why?
Why do you cause me 
So much heartache, rigor and pain?
Why the Xenophobia and hate?
Why brother?

When I approach you,
With contrition, you retreat like a stranded snail
When I smile at you
You sneer at me
When I laugh With You 
You jeer at me
Why brother?

When I look in your eyes
I capture, see hate, anger, disdain and Xenophobia 
When your lips move
I hear you hiss, curse and swear
When I pat you on your shoulder
I see you shrug
Why brother, but why?

When we hug
I feel your arrhythmia, repulse
When you sing
I hear your agony
When you dance, I see your nakedness, helplessness and powerlessness 
Why brother, but why?
