My family has some problems,
Also known as fueds.
I think of how they mught have started,
Then I understand; My brothers moods.
Why can't we be a normal family, I think to my self.
Like a picture perfect family, like that one on the shelf.
Late at night, I lay in my bed,
crying because of all the nasty words this night that were said.
Why can't he be abrother, or just a friend,
Instead of being rude, lend a helping hand.
The world we live in isn't a game.
Doesn't he know we have to uphold the family name?

You sound very wise in this piece.  Hard to explain why people do what they do.  Maybe low self esteem.
Hope things get better.
