OUR brother


My brother a little older than I,

where have you gone?

where are you?

come home if you may,

We have school tomorrow, it's your senior year,

your whole life ahead of you.


OH, wait,

you've been taken from a man,

a man,

a man that felt audacious towards you.. cause of your appearence.


America this child could have been your brother, cousin, uncle or son

Why did you take him? Give him back.



regardless of complexion, race or ethnic background you are my brother.





good night bro, it's just a dream.
