THIS IS A POEM FOR MY OLDER BROTHER JONATHAN:

IF YOU LOOKED ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
LIFE COULD BE EASIER
IF YOU WERE DETERMINED
YOU CAN GET TO WHERE YOU
WANT TO BE
IF YOU JUST HELP OUT A
LITTLE MORE THINGS WOULDN'T
BE SO HARD

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE BETWEEN
THE GOOD AND BAD I WOULD
WISH YOU KNEW WHICH WAS RIGHT
IF YOU WORK HARD YOU
COULD ACCOMPLISH MORE
IF YOU NOTICED YOU ARE NOT
THE ONLY ONE THAT IS HURTING
INSIDE

IF YOU KNEW THERE ARE ALOT OF
PEOPLE THAT CARE ABOUT YOU
AND THAT THEY ARE ALSO THERE FOR YOU
IF YOU COULD ONLY IMAGINE
THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT OPPORTUNITIES
THAT YOU ARE THROWING AWAY
IF YOU REALIZED THAT THERE'S MORE
TO LIFE THAN GIRLS

ONLY IF YOU KNEW THAT YOU HAVE
PEOPLE THAT LOOK UP TO YOU
IF YOU COULD START MAKING
CHANGES PEOPLE WOULD HELP YOU
OUT MORE
I UNDERSTAND YOU
ONLY IF YOU KNEW HOW MUCH I CARE FOR YOU
I LOVE YOU, MY OLDER BROTHER
