About the Poem
This poem was inspired by my brother. Although he is very hard to get along with sometimes I love him very much and I hope that he realizes this. I can already tell even though he younger than I that he faces many challenges ahead of him besides the obvious . . . and I want to both let him free and guard him like a mother. But in a way . . . I can do both without strangling him too much. But to get to the point . . . I wanted to express the love that I feel towards my brother and let him know that he can always come to me for strength and help.

My Fragile Little Flame
|by Jaime Hickman
Please don't drift away too far
My fragile, little flame
Your brighter than the others
but I see your true self
Your light is fading . . .
So how can I show you
that I will be your moon
That gives you light in the darkness
That guides you through
your blinding tears
Please my fragile, little flame
don't go out
For you give me light as well
