A Matter of Phamily: Happy Birthday, Trung!

Standard

I want to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my awesome brother, Trung, before the day is over.

First and foremost, I am proud that he is my brother. Despite me being the older brother between us, I look up to him in more ways than one.

My only real regret is that I have been so out of touch with his life for the past few months and then some. He and I were best buds growing up. I was always the shy, dorky one while he was always the outgoing and confident sibling.

We were two very different kinds of kids, and yet we still got along great. He always tried to have my back, and I likewise had his.

My brother Trung is on the right track for greater success. In fact, he is already on his way with a lot of things to his name that anyone would be thrilled to say, “Hey, that’s my brother!”

Happy Birthday, Trung!

Lyrics
It’s not like we could have become best of friends
Right from the start
That’s the reality

In the midst of a serious battle
I find right here another me arising

This struggle-born awakening is a chance turn!
So grasp at it!
Draw
Duel! Dual-ism

Our cards sharpened by each other
A fated opponent I’ve found is a person mirroring the very beat of my heart

Even if it is just a tie, and together we slip and we fall right now
Keeping moving on
