Brother's In The Sky

This goes out to my brother's in the sky,
I would like to say hi.
I hope you're doing fine
Because we can't talk until it's time
To my first brother, you died as a baby
But that doesn't mean we can't talk daily.
To my my high school brother, you died in a terrible crash.
When I heard the news, the world had gone by too fast
To my last brother in the sky, you died in a drive-by.
I'm upset that you're gone,
But the only question I want to know is WHY?
Why did all my older brothers fly to the sky?
Flew to the sky at such a young age.
One as an infant, he didn't even get his first meal.
One fell asleep behind the wheel,
When I heard that, I thought it wasn't real.
And one was just outside his house,
It was quiet as a mouse.
Then out of nowhere you heard gunshots
So all and all, to my brother's in the sky,
Hopefully we will all be able to talk when I fly to the sky.

Broken Brothers

There should be more, older brother said, as
He left one day, and I stayed that day.
But brother, we remember differently
As you called me single minded, as you called me feeble minded
North you went, where scornfully you greeted the winter cold
And the Neanderthals who were beast and bold
But brother, we remember differently
As I could not leave my laughter, my culture and follow a dream behind
My people, my Ubuntu… would all be gone, so how could I, allow such in kind?
The desert was not kind as it made us gasp and blind
The sun burnt our crops and made my young to weep.
But brother, we remember differently
You discovered fire; you did not fall… even when they were beast and brute
Understood the cold and tamed the mighty mammoths
You flourished and made a home so far away from home.
But brother, we remember differently
The blazing sun soon called me friend
The daunting desert soon embraced my kind
I prospered here and there, I was happy… here and there
But brother, we remember differently
You conquered the seas and took to the air
You made machines and nice cuisines
Discovered mathematics and named the stars.
But brother we still remember differently
I did little in your eyes, and little still in these eyes you gave me now
I was happy and I needed less perhaps this, is why I tell.
My hopes and dreams are engraved in my skin,
I went too close to the sun up high, and came back a lil too dark.
It is the fairytale in me, the novel… the romantic
But we remember differently
Older brother came back in the fall, with a mighty ship and deadly machines
This made my blood to rush, and my opinions to hush.
You had changed and so had I, You spoke white and I spoke me
So I could not tell you, Mother is dead
Nor remind you my blood is yours
You found a new God, so you looked down on mine
You told me my God is erroneous, my belief was worse
Courtesy of Darwin you found varied eyes, hair and even skin to match…
That hampered us not to see that you are my own, and you once left me as sketch.
But brother, why do we remember so differently?
I welcomed you with open hands,
Welcomed you like a brother of mine and shared with you all that was fine.
But brother, you have the weakness same as me… you forget same as me, so
You called me primitive as you took my land
You called me stupid as you shook my hand
You instilled your beliefs, and abolished my beliefs
You took me west and made me slave,
You told them I was not saved, and that I lived in a cave
You changed my system, you made you king and saw me ant
But brother, why do we remember so differently?
I know your story differs from mine
I know all will be well in time.
Brother of mine, know I forgive you, for all you had done, and
I do not blame you for all you had done.
But now that I have reminded you, that brother, my blood is yours
What will you do… what will you do?

My Brother

My brother
Is my son
He is my elder brother
And yet
He is
My smallest

Fishin Family

I come from a fishin family, yes I do,
My brothers got it bad, that is so true,
More dedicated than the mailman who delivers,
The hurricane was coming, my brother headed for the river,
His wife got all upset and they started fightin,
If you see bodies flying will you please come in? ?
My brother said, it all depends on if the fish are bitin,
