I am a man: little do I last
and the night is enormous.
But I look up:
the stars write.
Unknowing I understand:
I too am written,
and at this very moment
someone spells me out.

In its grave
Brotherhood sleeps
And around him
Runs the crowd
Nearby an old man
Sits and chants the beads
Waiting for his newbirth

The fateful universe has chosen
With a six billion year explosion

With a bond that is this unbreakable
Synchronicity is quite unmistakable

We are Brothers,
not by choice, luck, or the same seed

Different mothers,
But souls undeniably the same breed

If there comes a time for war
we"ll be joined together in the trenches
No matter what the game score
We"ll play, while they ride the benches

When it comes to the sacred brotherhood
Please, let this one thing be understood

No matter where you are, or whether you"re blessed with children or a wife

Your brother"s never too far, and just know you"re my dog beyond this life

It's a dog"s life..

Being a friend is being a man
Being a brother is being tolerant
There are who say we can
And there are who say we can't
Why is that so hard to love your brother?
And so easy to betray your friend ?
Why does time give me brothers?
And why does it take away my friends?
Is my brother a friend?
Or is my friend a brother?

Brotherhood

The one who loves,

The one who cares,

The one who of others thinks of,

The one who has others needs before theirs,

The one who is wise,

The one who is brave,

The one who really tries,

The one whose heart you gave,

The one who is thoughtful,

one way or another,

The one who I find delightful,

My one and only brother!

It is 1969

A man set himself on fire today
To protest the war

My cigarette sympathizes with him,
its ashes like burnt out snowflakes

Falling
Dissolving
in a puddle of rainwater
Going home

Hand in hand, we will stand together now,
They thought that we wouldn’t make it this far,
They were right; we should’ve stood down, but how?
Fought for our brotherhood, it’s what we are,
We go down; we go down with each other,
Down to battle on the field to the war
Work hard and play hard on the earth mother
Other team look at us and gaze in awe
My true brothers, my friends will stand by me,
Betrayal is the path of a loser
I’ll take the last stand and you’ll never see,
Smooth on this land we are, battle cruiser
As we just fight over nothing but pride,
In the Earth is where we will soon reside.

William Robinson Feb 2016

Oh dear little darling, dear little sister
sorry for breaking your leg in twister
Sorry for setting fire to your dolls
and for eating all your cinnamon rolls
But I love you dear sister with all my heart
Love you to the end
Loved you from the start.

I never actually done any of those terrible things towards my sister. But I still love her!
Conner Dixon Dec 2013

Brothers to the end
A friendship which i'd die for
And so gladly defend.

Brotherhood is not a lesson;
We learn it through house teaching.

playing god through technology
as if you had the right
destroying ones life
twisting the fate
you seem to deligate
making up for what you lack
no sight for peace
stuck on repeate
vingeful pride
ruining my life
yet
you know my stride
knowing im right
to this ill fight
in truth its wise
your lies
unkind
and what shall i do
but watch you and your pride
take down whats left
not realizing
youre helping
destroy my kids
who would be the brave
in the end
to tell these truths
with confidence
or shall i walk
for my color of skin
and the extremes
that wont justify
what a man has done
to a child
are you that
coward
ill never understand

sometimes a hood can lie
in arms to save a coward
its wrong.......

Take time to care
Infuse with joy
Mend the despair
Bro'hood employ
Achieve in prayer
Lord's love deploy
Long live old boy

Tried acrostic for my friend's birthday
