Innocence replaced with a conceitful attitude A mission fueled By deep seated anger to show your mom she can’t tell you what to do To prove you’re a child no more If you took a second or little more you’d realize that at 29 no man should see himself as a child proving himself a man At this stage you should be I am But you stand in defense of you Believing your family wants the worst for you I’ve realized there is nothing further to reach for and admit too than the truth And the truth is little brother you make poor decisions Based on the immature childlike lifestyle you’re living If someone comes along with a difference of opinion you demonize them In your mind they’re bailing on their responsibility to support your foolishness When it comes to you everyone is a hater But could it be you who's full of hate? Could it be your constant contrarianism which brings you in contention with everyone you come in contact with that keeps you in a state of constant void and anger? I think you like residing on the outskirts of rationalism A place where making concessions in the name of courtesy is as profane as cursing A land of misery where those hurting go to feel sane As long as you live in denial of your need to deal with your issues little brother The abused asylum is where you’ll remain
This poem is dedicated to my brother. Who I hope someday realizes while we didn't get the control we wanted in our younger lives, we do have control in our adult lives. Swimming in bitterness, anger, and resentment does nothing but give power to a terrible time that no longer exists.
