Memoir Poem : Brother

Image from

To my brother the star

Who guided me back

To a home we never had

To a safety we always wanted.

He let me be myself,

When everyone else told me

To be something completely else,

He helped me to have the courage

To fly away from torture,

Where we all survived

By hiding and smiling,

Pretending to be normal,

More than what we were.
