Thank You Brother

You put the family through pain
What did you gain?
Nothing.
I couldn’t understand why
But that didn’t matter.
I had to be there for our family
For support…love
But thank you, brother
Now I’m stronger

Mom and dad have open arms
But mine are crossed
Tightly.
I can’t forgive you
I won’t
You hurt me
You hurt everyone

Did you have a conscious?
A heart…of steel
You’re an asshole
Liar
Coward
I could keep going
But I learned a lot from you
I love our family even more
So thank you, brother
Thank you for leaving

My tears will dry
But my heart is scarred.
Scarred for forever
I don’t trust you
I don’t want to

So if you leave again
Don’t expect anything
I won’t call…
That’s a waste of my minutes
You’ll lose everything
But I won’t suffer again
I’ll forget you
So thank you, brother
Have a pleasant life
