You continued to let me down
Yet I still believed in you.
When I knew you were wrong
And you swore you were right…
And in the end we would be in a fight
I still loved you.
I still stuck by you.

Cause I believe in you.
I believe you that you are smarter
Than what you portray yourself to be.
I believe that you will succeed eventually.

Remember when I told you not to hang with those thugs.
Remember when I told you it wasn’t smart to sell drugs.
Remember when I came home to mom because you got locked up.
Remember when your first child was born…
And it was me you called on.
Remember when I told you I haaaate you
And you told me you loved me back.
Remember when I told you I can’t stand you
And your face I consistently smacked.

I wanna tell you I’m proud of you…
I wanna tell you I stand behind you…
I wanna tell you that I believe in you.

You say life is a hussle
And exercising your brain works too many muscles.
But don’t good business skills in your line work
Involve a good train of thought.
And what about that new Jersey you just bought?
Hope you brought groceries for the kids first….
I’m sorry…I forgot….
You’re still a kid…oops..i think not.
You’re a man…ain’t that right.
Ain’t that what you told me…
Scold me and call me your little sister.
When by birth I’m the oldest.
I know you look up to me…ashamed…
Because it’s a girl and not a guy.
I know you love me…upset
Because I won’t do everything you ask….
On what I think is wrong.
I know you missed me…sad…
Because the only time you decide to call
is when you need something,
if not nothing

But that’s okay…I still love you.
I believed in you...when no one else did…
When no one else would put up wit yoooo ****.
I had your back when moms didn’t have the dough…
Don’t get mad cause I didn’t send you money this time…
So you can blow…I got bills to pay…
What you trying to make me go for broke.
But I still love you.
And I’m still there.

Because I believe in you.
Because I believe in you.

Because I believe you will get pass your childish ways.
I believe you will see the sun rays…
As they beem down on you…
Showing you the light..
Letting you know what’s right.
I believe that you will one day hold your own..
Maybe not now…but soon when you are grown…
I believe because I believe in you…
Because I will be right behind you just to see you through…
Why because all these years…I’ve still stuck by you.
Because I believe in you.

You gave me pain.
You gave me joy.
I’m assuming that what little brothers are for.
And now I want to give you so much more.
I want to show you life alone…
I want to show you independence…living on your own.
I want to show education…added into the proclamation…
I want to show you our countries inflation…
I plan to teach you capital gain.
Sorry I can’t teach how to me a man.

But I want to show you the love of a woman…
And help you understand that she is only human…
I want to teach love and respect…
I want you to live with no regrets.

I want you to see the world…
I want you to cherish your little girls
I want you to have all your dreams…
As the sun arise and darkness is turned to day.
I want you to learn how to pray
To bless others and don’t forget yourself…
I want you to believe in you…if No one else.

******************************
Sorry it was so long...just and expression of me and my litle brother whom i love very much.
 
BELEIVE IN HE EVEN IF ONE BE WRONG
GIVETH UPON HIM AS HE BE OF CHILDHOOD

THE LIGHT THAT SHINE UPON HIM
U R BEAUTY IN WAYZ UNTOUCHED
BELIEVE IN HIM
BELIEVE IN SELF
BELIEVE IN CHRIST
HAPPINESS IS AT THE END OF THE DARK ROAD
THE PATH IS CLEAR WALK ON THROUGH IT
BELIEVE!!! AS I BELIEVE IN U
