    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.

    too long, yeal, i know
    but i've come into my own
    know how it's supposed to go

    believe me, i'm there
    a shoulder for you to lean on
    after all,
    you taught me FAIR

    got yo front and yo back
    with family love

    WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE THERE FOR BLOOD
