Don't Follow Me

This is a poem I wrote for my brother during my first time in hospital. He is my hope for the future.

One thing i'll teach you
Believe me it's true
If you want to be happy don't walk in my shoes
I want you to see all the joys in life
to feel the beauty, to bathe in the light
I want you to smile right from the heart
Stay in the sunshine
Keep away from the dark
I hope you're happy and always will be
Choose your own path
Don't follow me
