Reasons for My Last Curtain Call

Reasons for My Last Curtain Call

A Poem by Crimson Profile

A poem describing the rough relationship between brothers, but showing how roughness in the relationship can be transformed to lessons to be past from a sibling to another.

I've been thinking a lot
these past few days 
The reasons why 
you gave me that penetrating gaze

I thought at first 
that I was wrong
lying to you like a reoccurring song
Wasting your time 
for so very long

I thought of another 
reason why 
why a made you shed that cry
Maybe because I gave you fear 
I screamed and shouted in your ear

Or maybe because
I did not hold you dear
Turning away 
like some rusted gear

One more 
I thought might be true
maybe because I trusted only a few
You probably thought 
that this included you
But if you did
you boiled in your own stew
because I've always loved you

I hope that in time you learn
the reasons why I've been so stern
It was to protect 
the ones I love 
so I may be pure 
and rise to the great above
I may not know much 
but I know this now 
that someway,somehow
you'll learn these lessons
I've told you now

I'll know you'll cry
When I leave 
But be strong my dear child
You are our last remaining life
Be strong
Be strong for your new baby and wife 

Good luck brother 
forever and all
I love you brother
But this is
indeed my last curtain call

Oh I love this. The dude on the right does look like Sasuke. The dude on the left looks like Orochimaru.
