Brother

Always the sensible one,

so it seemed from

within outward. But now

I see it was

just an illusion wrought

by my own expectations

and quest for an

explanation to any shortfall

I saw in myself.

Your obstinance, continuing beyond

acceptance, makes it hard

for me to believe

that you are blood

kin and not some

parody of a fault

in every one I

see who cannot forgive

others but most of

all

himself.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
