  • another brother. here, but different.
    i try to appreciate that. he's sweet, but different.

    we shared so much. i would call him all the time to just say hello.
    he has so many reasons to be messed up. i know that he is happy now.
    but i miss who he was before. is he still that person, somewhere inside?

    it's not another death. he is alive, but i still feel robbed.
    in my mind, he should have a different life. a different family.
    but that is MY issue.

    he's here. shouldn't that be enough?
    but different. here, but different.
