Dear Michael (From Robert)
Hey Mike, it’s your big brother Rob,
Just wanted to write you a letter today.
You’re always on my mind and its time I write you,
I just want to share my thoughts with you right now.
For starters, I’m sorry I couldn’t keep you off the streets,
To me, I feel I failed you as a big brother in that aspect.
I know I could’ve done more or told you a lot of things,
But I felt it was best you needed to learn things on your own.
Five years out of your life gone because of mistakes we both made.
I won’t put it all on you even though you made decisions on your own,
I was the role model you looked up to and I did some wrong things.
With mom on drugs and dad gone, I was the man of the house,
So the guilt will always live within me for your prison sentence.
I just hope you are keeping your head up while you are there,
I know there will be days where you just want to give up.
Just know that I’m out here trying to better my life,
So when you get out, you’ll have somewhere to come to.
Hopefully I’ll be out of this neighborhood by then,
And live somewhere in the suburbs like Mr. Marble.
Right now I’m working toward getting into college,
Something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest.
