    Im Yo Brotha

    Yes, Im yo brotha

    and see, u betta get use to it homie
    like it or not, You dont get another one of me
    cant get rid of me, sorry, this is just reality
    Yet it pains me to see you see me as yo enemy
    especially when I'de fetch you anything
    within my reach earthly or heavenly
    give you the best of me, got none left
    give you the rest of me
    Just so that could fuflfill yo destiny
    yet you still detestin me
    invest in you, but you cant invest in me
    attentive to you, you neglectin me
    but one things remains the same
    with absolute certainty

    and thats that Im yo brotha

    and yea, we different, different styles, different taste
    different thoughts, different ways
    different likes, different hates
    thats why your Marcus and Why Im Tae
    different we are, yet we are still the same
    the blood in yours, is the blood in my veins
    when you get hurt, I feel that pain
    They call on you, they call my name
    have not disdain for that which has came
    only to help you attain your lions mane
    so that you'll be a better man than I'v became
    so you'll go longer than I've sustained
    ur infinite potential they cant contain
    and Im only tryin to help you reach that

    cuz Im you brotha

    I set not my will against you, Im for you
    I adore you, I implore you
    to get that high score dude
    to go on and excel in high school
    rock them over priced shoes, w/e do you
    Im just sayin that I love you, will go over and above for you
    get down in the mud for you
    push, drag, and tug for you
    nip, snip, and cut for you
    jump, dodge, and duck for you
    do whatever I gotta do

    cuz Im yo brotha
    and I love you
    your ma is my motha
    and I love you
    all we got is each other
    and I love you
    give you joy and I would suffa
    cuz I love you
    go naked to give you cover
    cuz I love you

    cuz Im yo brotha

You are not just your brother's keeper but you are his most definitely his light to one day find his own path to become a better brother like yourself.

    Yes indeed, what Platinum said... This is the type of piece that is fire when you just read it, I mean stating a brotha is a brotha no matter what. But hearing it read as well, whew, is like a blazing inferno. Beyond your brother's keeper and you mean it. Phenomenal.

    Wow! Your piece brought me to tears. Thinking about my own younger brothers and some of these same very words I have spoken to them time and time again! I feel your passion and love for him. I not only feel it but I know it all too well! Keep bringing the heat my brotha!!!!
