Alexander the great

Dedicated to my brother, with all my heart and love:

Amidst the chaos

you keep your peace;

within the torrents

you bring release…

Flashing waves of fierce descent

Growing wonders of your present;

Divine is the calm found in your heart

Divine is the willing to share, blessed to impart

Divine is the child I’ve witnessed to grow

Into this man I’m so proud to know;

For his piercing blue eyes or crystal clear mind

Could have bred arrogance, yet he chose to be kind

for many were obstacles in the life of this child;

Many were storms to help him grow wild;

Few could have mustered such thundering pain;

Few would choose light instead of disdain.

…yet amidst all my chaos

you keep your peace

and you shelter our storms

and bring us release.
