Sibling Rivalry - Poem by Chanel Jackson
It’s so common in our family
But is there a limit to this endless bickering?
Is there such thing as too much?
Before it ends in such dreadful pain?
We hear about it in the news
So thunderstruck by such
How could this happen?
Why? We ask in disgust
We blame the parents
We blame gangs
But what if it’s really our own shame?
The Violence in the world
They spread like bacteria infecting young minds
Why can’t we just love each other?
Brothers and sisters
under the one almighty God, our Father?
I must reiterate the question of the BEP
“Where is the love? ”
And maybe help you see
We need more than the help of Above
It is also our duty to help ourselves
Without one nothing can be done
If we all put effort to make this world a better place
Have faith in which we seek for guidance
We shall all receive His grace
“Where is the Love? You ask?
We just have to find it.
Find it in our hearts
In our actions,
Through the actions of others
And in our enemies
Once we find the love
There’s no stopping us
Cause “we are family”
And that’s what I’m proud to be
