Brothers


She said: I have four brothers
Some are called half brothers
Or rather step brothers
And some are full brothers.

To me they are all the same
Two of them are closer
Than the others;
The youngest in
Each group.

All of them run
To me when they
Want to marry,
Divorce or
Think of a second wife.

And I
feel happy for them,
Cry with them,
And advise them
With all of my heart.

But when I ask
Them when someone
Proposes(the are
So many since youth,
Until middle age) .

They get annoyed
Make fun of it,
Or be little the man,
If they could.
I do not know
Is it jealousy
O carelessness.

So I decided never to
Ask them for help
And I kept it
In my CHEST,
With all the tears
In the world
I ask how does it feel
To have a true brother.
