    My Brother's Keeper

    Born of the same blood nestled in the womb,
    our minds interwined at the first sight of the new world.
    We are bonded by love, joined by a everlasting sheath of sheer faith,
    yet we are not one.
    You thrive to belittle me,
    torture me with deceit
    thrash me with memories of the deadly hour as time steadily creeps,
    into our minds, souls, and mortal bodies, yet i cannot breathe
    breathe in , breathe out, they say
    Protection, indubitably, yet we say we are our brothers keeper
    but who is keeping us, or are we merely observers of a higher power, living continually by a higher power.
    Are we our brothers keeper.

    You like dark places, CB, and who am I to criticize? You're good at what you're comfortable with, and it's definitely the artist's right to choose his/her media. Your work is very literate, there's no denying that.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
