For My Little Brother - Poem by Ismim Putera

You will grow up, my little brother,
Just like me, in a matter of time,
You will face the wonder of teenage life, my brother,
Sweet and sour, like lemon and lime.

You will grow up, my little brother,
Unlike me, but you were a bit lucky,
Because you have a big brother as your tour guide, my brother,
So that you will not walk into adolescent in lonely

You will grow up, my little brother,
Unlike me, I was alone and knowing nothing, unexplained,
Who should I refer to? who should I talk to, my brother?
For all these changes-body, heart and soul, unexplained!

You will grow up, my little brother,
Unlike me, the other way around, simpler and uncomplicated,
What are the do's and don'ts, what are the right and wrong,
What are the normal and abnormal, clearly explained

You will grow up, my little brother,
Unlike you, you were maturing fast,
I have never know how to gain my self-worth and potential,
But I know I like arts, books, science and the green grass

You will grow up, my little brother,
Like me, in a matter of time,
I have forgotten how I spent those ten youthful years my brother,
But I recalled there were some laugh and tears from time to time!

Will you grow up, my brother?
Use the time wisely, for study, soccer, family and friends,
Waking up from the cocoon and fly high,
Spread your feathers and touch the sky.
