Having hope


You are elder, o my brother,
My elder brother.
You have so many duties,
You have so many sacrifices,
You give me the opportunities
that you never had,
You guide me towards the life
that you dreamt to lead.
In your time you had poverty but
to me, you make opportunity.

O my brother, my beloved brother,
I will never forget your sacrifices,
I will never forget your guidance,
I will never forget your love for me,
I am just afraid of if, somehow, I ever hurt you.

O my brother, my respected brother,
I can never say you,
“Thank You”,
no word is worthy.
But I am so lucky that
I am your younger brother and 
You are my elder.
