My Brother, My Friend - Poem by Crystal Johnson

I know that life is strange sometimes
But there are answers you have to find
Just look a little longer, you'll see
Just hold on and trust in me

I know sometimes you feel alone
You keep on knocking but no-one's home
But if you knock just one more time
The door will open, you'll be inside

I know you feel like no-one cares
Just reach for my hand and I'll be right there
And when no-one listens to you when you scream
I'll be right beside you, we'll scream as a team

Don't give up just yet, there's still so much more
There are things out there that are worth living for
And if you feel like you're slipping away
Tighten your grip for just one more day

Please don't let go, I want you to see
That life is much better than it seems to be
Yea, it gets hard, but it's easy in the end
Brother, hold on, cause you're my only friend

    I am so sorry you guys are going through what you are. If there is anything I can do...please contact me. I am aware that things are tough. A way ''out'' is never the answer though.......a way ''past'' is. You can overcome and create a life for yourselves without the chaos and pain....I can tell through your writing that you are searching for that happy life. You can have it. Take care Crystal. Sincerely, Mary

    Your brothers are lucky to have you as a sister. This is beautiful.
