"Brothers" - A Poem By Gian Carlo

This is a weird time in my life where I thought that friends that would have my back, never checked up on me. Then there were friends who, I never thought would reach out, did.

Only to seek a brotherhood with strangers.

My heart is on my sleeve,

But it also endangers.

Thinking they would always be there for me when times get tough,

I should've called their bluff.

In this world,

You can't trust a single soul.

When everyone is out for themselves in search of themselves and gold.

Times are tough and you feel betrayed,

But I will always remember the "Brothers" that stayed.

-Gian Carlo
