How To Be A Great Brother (Poem)

Dear Brother,

Do you recall the time I borrowed your
new bike and scratched it all up?

I figured you would pound me,
but you did not.

Do you recall the time you caught me
skipping school to go to the baseball game?

I thought for sure you would tell Mom and Dad,
but you did not.

Do you recall the time I broke the window
at the community center and you had to pay for it?

I figured you would take my allowance to cover the cost,
but you did not.

Do you recall the time we went camping and I forgot my tent?

I thought you would make me sleep in the dirt all night,
but you did not.

Do you recall the time I started a fight with those big guys
and you had to come and save my butt?

I figured you would leave me there to get what was coming to me,
but you did not.

Yeah, there were a bunch of things you did not do.

But you were always there to look out for me, to guide me,
and to love me.

Now there were tons of things I planned to do to make it all
up to you when you returned from deployment in the Middle East.

But you did not.

The End.

MORAL OF THE POEM: Show love for your worldly brothers and sisters
while they’re still here to be loved. Because tomorrow they may not be.

Stand Up.
Fight Back.
Break Free.
