To My Brothers (Wherever You Are) (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)


"To My Brothers (Wherever You Are)"

 

I know that some of you will read this

And I know some of you won’t

We are growing into men

This is a difficult for us all

As our parents fight to provide for us

We are drifting apart for good reason

We are learning ourselves

We are learning our purpose

We may squabble from time to time

But don’t doubt for one second

That brotherly love won’t overcome

Don’t doubt that we will come together

Some of us are very close

Some of us are very distant

Either way, the love for each other

Is just as valuable as any amount of gold

Our relationships will constantly change

But the family we have grown to be

Will always, always and forever remain

I love you all equally the same

A native of Kaplan, 27 people have joined the community ranking Kaplan at #6 in the top 10 places following. Yes! Kaplan the 1st rural town to beat out larger places like Shreveport (currently not in the top 10).
