BROTHER! BROTHER – I’M HERE NOW

BROTHER!  BROTHER – I’M HERE NOW

Thoughts so deceptive

that they put you at war with yourself –

the monsters came creeping in and out of our head,

dancing around your bed, ridiculing your flaws,

whispering lies into your ears,

tearing your heart apart and stringing your heartbeats

into a chain rhyme of melancholy—

tell me, brother – tell me all about it,

tell me all about the demons no one believes you’ve had to fight!

 

Brother! Brother, I’m here now!

Is this life not a race we are meant to run together-

am I not by birth, by existence, under an oath

to walk with you and love you without condition –

so tell me all about it, I’m here if all you need is a listening ear,

a warm hand upon yours when your fears send shivers down your spine—

you never have to collapse beneath the weight of your suffering

because I’m here now, your battle is ours now!
