My Brother and I

All of the things I’ve seen
And all of the things I’ve tried
     Nicotine, the green
For all of this, my soul and I cried.

All my life, I’m forever fighting
The hidden, powerful, and defeating

The Love
So bright, it’s blinding
The Dark
So deep, it’s unseen
The internal war between
Being me
Or feeling anything

But I’m not trying to hide
Even though
In the past, I lied
I felt I had nowhere to go
My mind had to decide
To listen to my heart
Or to kill what’s deep inside
I know now that I’m stronger
These Demons won’t win
I will never give in
You’re doing the same
Fighting the dark
But just know
That you only need a spark
To start a flame
The Fire, once lit
Continue to fuel it
You have the life-force
The Desire
You’ve found your source
No longer a liar
Forever me and you
We’ll feel the light
We’ll feel the night
We’ll always fight
For what is right
For Honor

Although, You and I
We’re not able to ride
Round’ n round’ the town
“Just cause why not”
And for this I cried
But know this
You’re in my thoughts
You’re my bro
The Gemini

I love you man.
