No words of wisdom

Or advice to give.

No tangible reason

For a life to live.


With outreached hand

Brotherly love and kinship,

I can only offer you

A true and sincere friendship.


Stories to be told

And sorrows to share

You are not alone

For I truly care.


When all seems lost

And hope is diminished

Walk with me, talk with me

Your life is not yet finished.


Set aside what others say

Ignore the insensitive advice.

Don’t give in to the rhetoric.

Don’t make the sacrifice.


You have but one life,

No matter how crappy,

Take control of it,

Do what makes you happy.
