Brian Coburn // THE LAST ONE

I have never known

A life alone,

Since I’ve always had my brothers.


My eldest bro

Left years ago,

And now the middle one too.


He’s off at college,

Gaining tons of knowledge,

And I’m stuck alone for the first time.


It’s a weird experience,

There’s a great big difference,

Since it’s something entirely new.


I really don’t like it

Though I guess I can’t fight it,

So I have to accept how it is.


Someday I’ll leave too

And bid my family adieu

Then my parents will be all alone.
