This series is so emotional. It is hard not to shed a tear for each TMNT that has just lost a fallen brother in combat. Death comes for everyone...

Accompanying the image are four classic poems about losing a brother.

Jao Pires a.k.a. Deadpea is the amateur illustrator responsible for this awesome series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan art.


By ways remote and distant waters sped,
Brother, to thy sad grave-side am I come,
That I may give the last gifts to the dead,
And vainly parley with thine ashes dumb:
Since she who now bestows and now denies
Hath ta'en thee, hapless brother, from mine eyes.
But lo! these gifts, the heirlooms of past years,
Are made sad things to grace thy coffin shell;
Take them, all drenched with a brother's tears,
And, brother, for all time, hail and farewell!
--Gaius Valerius Catullus (on his brother's death)


Give me your hand, my brother, search my face;
Look in these eyes lest I should think of shame;
For we have made an end of all things base.
We are returning by the road we came.
Your lot is with the ghosts of soldiers dead,
And I am in the field where men must fight.
But in the gloom I see your laurell’d head
And through your victory I shall win the light.
--To My Brother - Siegfried Sassoon


Surging under the ocean floor.
I shall never meet you, brother—
Not for years, anyhow;
Maybe thousands of years, brother.
Then I will warm you,
Hold you close, wrap you in circles,
Use you and change you—
Maybe thousands of years, brother.
--Kin - Carl Sandburg


He was there too,
marching by,
just ten feet from my spot
beyond arm's reach
solemn, marching in his blues
my brother
taking his turn
joined with the ranks
the honor guards, the men
and women in blue
marching honoring him
solidarity in the marching
the brotherhood
the thin blue line
---My Brother - Raymond A. Foss
