I would really appreciate any comments. Thanks
I like your poem, because it is so emotional and well-written, but not the situation! It must be very hard to handle right now. My thoughts go to you and your family.
Thanks I really appreciate it. I really am hoping he will turn his life around. He really needs to stop drinking and stop hanging around people who will get him into trouble.

Very sad write. I am sure it is a bad situation right now for you. I can only hope he sees what it is doing to him and the ones around him. I will pray for him and you my friend that all is well. Great job on the write and I hope your holiday is wonderful. Susan :)
Thanks I really appreciate you prayers. I really am frustrated and angry with my brother. You have a wonderful holiday too. :D
I read about your brother before, you reach out to him, call to his inner-self, perhaps the brother with whom you grew up, maybe even grew away from, but he is not hearing you is he? It is hard to help those we love when they will not help themselves and often, until they learn, and see your wisdom, it can be so tough. Never yield though, keep battering at his common sense, you may get through, one day.
I will never give up on him it is just hard to go through. thank you for your helpful advice. Have a great happy holiday. :D
Hopefully one day he will see that his is sinking and stop before its to late, I'm glad you haven't given up on him. I love your poems their so full of life and emotions, also love the picture.
Thank you. I am glad you enjoy reading my poems. This one was just letting my emotions out with the difficult situation I am in with him. Thanks for commenting. Have a Happy Holiday. :D
A very emontionel poem. Hope he gets off it soon. :)
I do too. I am just so frustrated with his actions. My parents received a phone call from his girlfriend in the middle of the night telling us that he was arrested. I can't believe he would do this around the holidays. I am so upset with him right now but I will still be there for him and love him. Just needed to vent out my anger and frustrations. thanks for commenting really appreciate it. Have a happy holiday.
The poem is very well written but I'm very sad to find about this situation. I somehow know how you feel because I had a somewhat similar situation with my sister. She used to do shop-lifting but I'm glad to say that in the end it all worked out. I hope that will be the case for you too ^-^ All i can say s good luck and don't give up! It might be hard to continue reaching out for him but you'll see your efforts will pay off someday( hopefully soon). I don't know what goes around in your brother head but I'm sure that knowing someone is there for him helps him to not fall even deeper in the hole he had created and your words of support and encouragement, even though he might deny, resonate somewhere in his heart. Keep trying!! ^-^
I will always keep trying with him he is my little brother. I will always love him too. I am just a little ulpset with him at the moment. I want to thank you so much for your kind words you have given me through this difficult time. I really appreciate and I hope you have a happy holiday. :D
Amazing :D I LOVED it with a capital L, keep this up hunny! You're a legend =]] Merry Christmas :-) x
Thanks. I am glad you enjoyed this piece. At the time was very frustrated and up set with my brother. thanks for the compliment. :D

Such a sad write. I hope he gets better for everyone's sake. M
I know me too. So far he is out of jail but not really talking to me since I gave him my piece of mind. I hope he stops drinking.
Another very deep and emotional piece of writing on how family can often be a huge sense of disappointment to us all.
Why are some folk so stupid and senseless do they not see the damage they cause others?
Your writing brings home to many the feelings of being let down by others who are selfish in their actions and act without any self control.
I think perhaps there are many who might see it as attention seeking bringing awareness to their plight but i see it as weakness and a carefree attitude,well done.Eileen
Yeah I wasn't trying to get attention I just wanted to vent my frustrations out. I was so upset be the whole ordeal. I understand that it is hard for addictions to stop. I just felt betrayed and hurt that he did this stupid obnoxious choice. I mean how can you be so stupid. He didn't pay some of his tickets and then there was a warrant for his arrest. Not only that when he was arrested he was drunk. He has got so bad with alcohol the court ordered him to have a breathalyzer in his car. If he has over the amount of alcohol and drunk he will immediately go to jail. Not only that he was supposed to take a class the judge ordered and still has not done it. Just found this out by my mother. If he doesn't sign up and take this class he will go to jail. I am so upset with him right now. I mean he is twenty five and old enough to understand what he is doing is wrong. I will never give up on him and just hope to God he turns his life around. Thanks for commenting. Sorry for the long comment. Just still upset with him.
I didn't mean you were attention seeking i meant he might have been with this erratic behaviour and the alcoholism issue here,i will pray for you and hope he can see the error of his ways before his sorry life comes right off the rails for him and it impacts on your family.
Thanks for your long reply it meant you found what i said as being useful and interesting blessings to you.
Oh okay sorry for the misunderstanding. Yeah I think it would break my mother's heart if she had to bury her son. I would also be devastated and mad at the same time. I just want him to listen to me and stop his drinking. He is literally killing himself and his life. It is so sad to see that someone you love is slowly destroying their life and slowly killing himself. I pray to God he will quit and get the right help.
Its very hard for people to help people who do not seek help. I think you've wrote another one regarding your brother.
I hope you gets help soon and you're constantly trying to reach to him and save him.
You're a good sister.
Thank you. Yes I hope he also gets the help too. I just found out recently he needs to pay money to the court soon otherwise he will go to jail again with bail,but it will be $4,500 bail fine. He needs to stop drinking and hanging out with these so called friends that get him into trouble. I hope with all my heart he will listen to me and try to get better. Jessica
Your anger shows clearly in this but also your love for him or you would not worry about what he does. Well written with good flow and rhyme I hope writing this helped ease some of your frustration.
PS. I have a son gone a similar way when he wa younger it was alcohol and drugs and he was not interested in any thing else Now it is presciption drugs plus what ever he can get his hands on he has no thought for anyone else at all. Unlike you I gave up on him when he turned 30 he is 33 this year and still has not changed.
yes I am still frustrated with him and angry but I will not ever let him be. I will keep showing him the right way to go. Hopefully he will then listen. He is a good brother just very hurt going through a divorce that ended badly. He is turning to alcohol for a crutch. I hate seeing him like this and it literally kills me when I see what he is doing to himself. I am sorry your son is going through an addiction as well. I hope he will get better. I am not going to going to let him go through this addiction alone. I have heard from many other addicts or addicts family they will usually get worse if they feel you have given up on them or lost hope. I just hope will not have to bury him at young age. He is only 25 years old. Too young to be going through this or having the misfortune of dying. Thank you for reading and commenting. I really appreciate it. Jessica :)
