My Brother's Keeper
















It all started with Cain
Hate
Malice
Death

It all ended for Abel
Hurt
Pain
loss of...life

The Cains are there,
still
to hate
to be malicious
to kill

Where will you run to Abel?
A victim of judgment, misunderstanding envy
and why?
Anything and everything
Your colour
your race
your religion
your food
your You
Cain won't let you be

Cain died too
eventually
Today
Cain lives
sometimes
he changes
becomes an Abel
and Abel
alas
sometimes
changes too
and becomes a Cain
and so the cycle goes on

Fundamentalism
and all the 'isms'

Xenophobia
and all the 'phobias'

It all started with Cain
It all ended for Abel

One sweet day,
something new started with Jesus
in a manger

One sad day,
and it all ended for Him
on a battered cross
or so they thought

Actually
Now
through Jesus
every day
A Cain CAN become an Abel
An Abel
CAN becomes a better Abel
learns to forgive a Cain
Opportunity
has been availed

One day
Cain won't be
the Cain we have known
for one day
Justice, Peace and love
shall reigh
forever


Come Lord Jesus.
