Through The Years With Roy

This is a poem I wrote about one of my brothers when he was in jail. I believe that the words are pretty clear. At least they are to me.

Roy.

You were my worst enemy
Growing up,
You’d hit me,
Bite me
Tell me what to do
Tell me off
Yell at me
Hell, ya still do
You were physically
And mentally
Abusive
However,
Behind all of this
You were my protector
No one could touch me
No one could hurt me
Unless it was you

I know I can talk to you
About anything
You may have constant judgment,
But you’ll always listen
You’ll stand by me
Through everything

But, now you’ve been put away
Trapped behind bars
For a wrong
A wrong I believe you didn’t do

I was asked to write you,
I said no,
She asked why
I said, “I have nothing to say”

Truth is
You’re an amazing big brother
And I’m ashamed,
Ashamed I can’t help.

Just know,
Through it all
I love you
And I’m on your side.
