When I was younger I lost my faith

You told me,

“Brother, you’ll know when you’re my age”

And even though that day has come

And I still do not

You are still my hope

My pushing off

You are here

Arms across

I cannot bear to see my father

This is not fair

I’m not at peace

But I clearly see what needs to be done

When we’re breathless

When the love hits

We’re all the same
