Four Brothers

Four brothers, hopeful, and determined,
with life's expectations
still bound up in a destiny
too distant to imagine.

Four brothers,
sons of immigrant parents
in a land full of bigots and opportunity.

Four brothers,
honed to the violent streets of manhattan
where "dego" was the tune of their derision.

Four brothers all whose
songs have been played,
whose dreams have come and gone
like the boisterous wind.
