A brother does not only sit on the table to have dinner with you at the end of the day in the name of family. He is someone who will always be your best company despite the disagreements and misunderstandings. The only person who will forever be understanding when the days get dark.

 He is the one who will put his hand over your shoulder and walk you through your days when all you have left is the mere strength to blink and inhale oxygen. This is what a typical brother is but not for me… I do not have a brother, I have a half of me always. My brother is my all and the reason as to why I am a better person today:
Here is a short poem about what a brother is:


He is my strength and I confide in him for all my days
The pillar by my side for when I fall he picks me up and we dance
The one who never directs my steps to the wrong just for pretense
My self-proclaimed father to never allow me to be a nuisance 
And I cannot imagine myself without him, God please never make him my past tense

He is my worst yet best for as long as I can remember
He makes my Sundays and every last day of December
In July he is the reason why my mood remains so somber
Remembering the days when he used to never be sober
And I heal of the wounds that are cut open each time in October
Because I am reminded of his reckless past as a stoner
But I sing Hallelujah to the healing of his disorder    

He is my other half and indeed my all
For it is he who directed me away from cliff where I would fall
But instead he has put in me, the spirit and habit of standing tall
To conquer and overcome for I am victorious through it all
Today I can walk and run for he taught me during my crawl

Indeed my brother is not just the other half of me but my all

Thank you for reading, kindly share and give feedback, i'll appreciate it :) xx


  1. A great piece of literature indeed. Looking at it through the political lense, the poem qualifies as a memory verse especially now when politicians are noising words of hatred, turning brother against brother

    1. That's an interesting way to look at it. i hope it will change mind sets of the people , and let each one realize the power of brotherly love.

      and thank you for taking time to go through it :)

  2. It's a great work dear sister from a great mind ......go ahead and write more of this and help transform the society
