Day 5 – Little Brother
And it is like looking at myself,
In the mirror.
Awkward and fifteen,
Struggling to find my way in this world.
I know the mistakes you will make,
And I know you will learn from them,
Just as I have.
I wish I could tell the young me,
So many things,
But I remember her struggle,
And I carry the lessons she taught me in my heart.
And I try to guide you,
As best as I can.
Settle for teaching you,
To love and be loved.
