Brother - Poem by Andre Leal

We all make our mistakes in life and for that payment is always in full,
Regardless of our actions our decisions leads us to either victory or defeat;
A learning proccess that as humans we all must pass, even at our childhood we gain experience with hard knocks;
Having sometimes a blind eye to the truths or deaf to our conscious of a fool,
Hoping that as we proceed in life the past stays in the past and doesn’t hunt us;

Not realizing that we involve people that love us;
Consequences that influence many of those who are constantly in our minds,
Separation of a love one is a difficult task; Regardless whether is a mother, brother, son or daughter;
Waking up to an empty soul feels like an ocean with a bottomless floor,
Like darkness not knowing whether your next step is forward or stumble into the unknown,

Now we must part you must go one way as I must remain,
A brother I never new must part his own way,
Soon we’ll be together I understand, soon we share a laughter once again;
I’ll remain your brother thru thick and thin; you must pay for your action as they say,
Don’t worry; for brood is thicker than water and no matter what you will always be my brother.

    a poem like this
    touches the heart
    and gives every hope
    a feeling
    which needs to be felt
    in this twisted wold-
    love
    and the powerful of love
    defeating time and confusion
    keep up the good work
