This was written recently about my older brother's struggles to reconnect with us, his family.

I see your confusion
As you reach out
To reconnect
With a family you walked away from,
To choose your life
In the world,
And I see the desire
To have that family back again,
For your infant daughters sake,
But yours too,
And I see your confusion
Of them being so slow
In reaching back,
Whereas I laugh easily with them
And create family dinners,
And special anniversary coffees
That I do not think
To invite you too.
And I look across at you,
And see the confusion,
And the heart,
The truth of you
Buried under the world life,
And I want to reach back,
To grab you and pull you forward,
But I also am confused
With my own desire
To reconnect
With you, my brother,
And I also,
Do not know how.
So we press our palms against each other
On different sides
of the pane of glass of beliefs
That separate us,
me looking at you,
Our family by my side,
And you,
Looking back at us
And we both wonder,
How to shatter the glass
Without being cut
By the broken shards.
