EMOTIONALLY TRASHED



hes my brother
blood thicker than water
adolescent, he rebelled
against kith, kin and society
he kissed bohemia for a while
rebelled again
and closed shut like a clam
women and sex were now taboo
and I became his nemesis
to please my folks
I closed an eye
he aimed at the other eye
and we clashed like never
he lost all interest in life
and dedicated himself
to our beloved widowed mother
so I closed both eyes
but then my blood rebelled
he has been diagnosed
with prostate cancer
the news spilled over my face
like incandescent lava
and how he resents me!
Am I not guilty of his sickness?
blood like poisoned water
