No Brother of Mine

No brother of mine would sell me out to one who wishes to do me harm.

No brother of mine would turn his back on me when I need help, especially when I have given help whenever he was in need.

No brother of mine would keep the truth to himself solely because it would benefit only him.

No brother of mine would be satisfied with misfortune falling on me, so long as they don't fall on him as well.

No brother of mine lets his brother suffer in silence.

No brother of mine would sit silently if a shout could save his brother.

No brother of mine lies about me to others.

No brother of mine should bring me shame and embarassment.

But then again,

No brother of mine would be admonished for something I would be punished for.

No brother of mine should look me in the eyes when he stabs me in the back.

No brother of mine should make my enemies look like friends
