Faramir - The Younger Brother

- Celebrian
Faramir was the younger brother,
he had no appreciation
from his father the steward,
for what brave deeds he did.

While Boromir went to Rivendell,
Faramir stayed back in Gondor
at the will of his father,
who loved Boromir more.

Denethor was a bitter steward,
"Boromir would have done better,"
he said to his younger son,
who then vowed to do so.

Defending Osgiliath from orcs,
every man died around him
yet all his father said,
were unkind words of hate.

Faramir longed for his father's love,
for appreciation from him,
to be noticed for who he
really was - Faramir.
