My Brother And I- A Poem

My Brother And I

We never talk of memories,

My brother and I

But if we did, Oh how I would cry.


My brother says I had it worst off with the abuse

But no, he doesn't realize he had it rough too.

Physically and verbally,

It's not all about me.


But as I cracked and became weak

I would do everything beyond what we speak

To try to make my father like me

To be perfect in his eye, to be all I could be.


While my brother was never good enough for Daddy

I would hide under the table and I would cry

When my brother would take it for me

The punishment... that should have been me.


But Daddy's perfect angel could never do wrong,

Still although my brother was bad, he stayed strong.

To this day... he stays strong.


We never talk about memories

My brother and I,

But if we did, Oh how I would cry.
