My personal poetry collection (thus far) continued…

This is a letter that I have addressed to some imaginary figure struggling to live a moral life in a society of moral absence.

Poem 2: To a brother

To the one I hold in brotherly affection

Why do you seek such ill love; such false gratification?

Is it to seem significant, “In”, as popular as the fleeting figures of hipness, sport and soon-to-be-forgotten styles?

Why not wait to understand love’s enigma?

Be attracted to the features of the mind and heart that mature with time, not dissolve and show your worthy sisters that you possess traits absent in a charmer’s forked tongue:

Trust, commitment and above all,

Chivalry.
