Little Brother This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


You remember when they first brought him home,

Wrapped in a blanket; all small and warm.

You remember when he smiled his first smile,

His rosy face smiling up at yours.

You first bike, the Little League games, the stray pup.

You remember when he started high school,

The advice you gave him, trying to be cool.

Now, you remember, he's almost grown.

Now big sister, he's on his own.

Wow, this really moved me! I have three younger brothers, one is only three months old, so the first few lines really caught my attention. I am only fourteen at the moment, I have a 10 year old brother, so some of it did apply, I'm always telling him what to wear and such, so the end of the poem also did relate to me in some ways. All in all, a great poem. Well done!
