Words of sister and bothers we do not want to explain
Rather try to identify the source of each dropp of rain.
It should not be the who, what, where, or when
Existence is ordained for now and not then.
In the family of man there is a Father and a Mother
All others are sisters or brothers.
Of course it does not remove a daughter or a son
For without them there would not be anyone.
A son to become a Father and the daughter a Mother
But first they were a sister and brother.
What is the value of the words genetically weak
It is the understanding of brother and sister we should seek.
Each of us is part of creation as a family under God
Our beginning and end has a connection to our earthly sod.
It is because of the family of God we should seek
To help brothers and sisters who are denied and weak.
Each of us has a spiritual gift called a soul
It is our joining together which will make us whole.
