tim's Bits and Pieces - 60. Brotherhood

Our world’s awash with tormented souls

How long will we unfairly judge?

Evil does not come dressed in black

Nor is good clad only in white

We are each not better than our brother

The time is now, reach out, and see

That in our clasped hands is equality.

 

 

This one comes from knowing men who have served as my own Husband did as a police officer, as my friend Wayne Gray did in the US Navy and from watching much about men who served in the two World Wars ...

 

There is a place in men—

a place of buried brotherhood

A grotto, dark and quiet

Held firmly in their breast

Where passion is an endless thing

                  ***

Thanks for reading.

Two wonderful pieces. The first, the brotherhood of the human race … we need to see we are one race, no matter our colour or gender.

The second … what men, people, who serve feel is hard to describe. There is a sense of duty, not only to yourself, but to all. There is a need to protect and stand for and maybe die for that duty. Most are prepared to do that. 

But yes, there is a special place for my brothers in arms.

Excellent pieces of writing, very powerful words. Brotherhood and duty, things that are needed regardless of our race, colour and gender. Thanks for this tim x

I have to echo Mike, particularly concerning the second poem. In addition to what he said about duty to others, there's something that pulls with an immense gravity when I meet another veteran or active member of the military or the police. There's an unspoken recognition of one another, and of the vows/oaths we took. It is hard to describe, and that's the best I've got.

Great poems, tim.

Thanks Wayne... i just listen to these veterans.. like the guys from Easy Company.. every year they see each other.. but they have this connection. They still cry over their friends who died ... it's an amazing and beautiful thing. xo
