PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"My Brother (RP)"
This piece was difficult; it's real life stuff. Perhaps too heavy for RP, perhaps not. This was certainly not my usual writing style and sorry to disappoint my "Boy in the Bed" fans, but far different than that SSC entry.

My Brother

The room so still, tubes everywhere,
Family all round, sobs fill the air.

I look down at my brother and still I see,
A kid filled with love, as he always would be.

The events of the day whirl in my mind,
Oh life, you can be so cruel and unkind.

The sounds of sirens still fresh and clear,
How did this happen to my brother dear?

Happy one moment, Oh what a gentle soul,
Now in the bed, events beyond our control.

A car moving too fast, round the corner it came,
Iím sure the driver never intended to maim.

The screeching of tires as she tried to brake,
The sickening thud, the ensuing heartbreak.

An ambulance rounding corners, faster than fast,
Up on two wheels, will his life last?

Emergency surgery gives him a chance,
Now we wait, Lord, please break his trance.

Day after day, he lies still in the bed,
How I long to say, things left unsaid.

The coma it seems, never to end,
From it will, he ever ascend?

As I talk to him sometimes, I still can see,
The way he would run and squeal with glee.

Oh little child, asleep in your own space,
Come back to us soon, I need your embrace.

Finally one day he opens his eyes,
A sight greater than the brightest sunrise!

Years pass by and my brotherís awake,
He can find wonder in every snowflake.

No, he will never walk or even think clearly,
But heís my brother, I still love him dearly.

That awful day, no, it was not the end,
Though much is lost, I still have my brotherÖ my friend.

Very powerful RR!

I've read this several times and it is just wonderful. I love the positive tone! So many people would have taken a different outlook on this situation.

Great Job!
