What Happened To The Brotherly Love? - Poem by RuNett Nia Ebo

What happened to the Brotherly Love? Did it whither up and die?
Did it decide it didn't live here anymore? When did it pass us by?

What happened to our Sisterly Affection?
Why are we seeing so much hatred and rejection?
Children killing children. Adults not far behind.
We've been re-named 'Kill-a-delphia' as the death toll
continues to climb.

What has happened to the city where I live;
And in cities all over; one after another?
The blood baths continue on the streets and at venues
and no one is saying, 'in the name of God- Stop! '

From city to city, we all need prayer and
Prayer-a-delphia must be the first to care.
We have to get the love back from wherever it's gone.
We should start by contacting God's!
