A Poem About Brotherly Love/I am My Brother's Keeper

EARTH’S OCEAN


There is an invisible ocean


On this planet God calls


Earth.


An ocean in which many


Lives are lost.


An ocean in which many


Lives have drowned.


Come on, you see them,


I see them,


We all see them.


Everyday walking aimlessly


With blank bewildered stares.


They have no destination


Because there is nowhere


They need to be


Imagine,


Waking up everyday


With all you own


In tow


And it is just


Another day


With nowhere to go.


Imagine


Fitting everything you own in two


Shopping bags;


Imagine wearing clothing that


Can only be described as rags


I see them everyday living


In dismay.


Imagine


The garbage can being


Your only source of Food

And


The only person you can


Depend on is you.


The Park benches your only bed.


Sometimes with nowhere to lay your head


I see them everyday


We all see them everyday


I give them what I can spare


Are we all doing


Our share?


There is an invisible ocean


On this planet God calls


Earth.


Where so many souls are


Walking around hurt


Don’t judge this soul


Until you walk in his or her


Torn shoes


You have no idea what


They have been through.
