Helpless Pleading

Do you know
what you mean to me
brother?
Your life is not forfeit
no matter what you might think.
I know who you are
I see into your soul
I've known for years
even through my bitterness
my love for you
overflows.
Your identity
who you are
what you do
will always be
valued.
I know others have hurt you
a blazing fire anew
numbing it down
to a dull throb
but it won't leave you.
We have that in common
among others
we've both been hurt
deeply.
You were always the honest one
I see it now
while I buried it deep inside
and pretended it didn't
exist.
Can't you see the good in you?
Because we all see it
even your oppressors.
And despite the hurt
inflicted upon you
even they have always
loved you.
I wish I could tell you
everything was going to be
alright.
But as one going through something
myself
I know that there will always be times
of hurt
but there are also times of joy.
Like the joy of our renewed
relationship
Don't you realize we are like
newfound brothers now?
All those years we spent
distant
because of past relations
or lack thereof.
That can all change
you don't have to go thru this
alone.
