Hi diary,

I have brought you words in verses to help make this world a better place for you and me. It is titled ‘’Brother’s Keeper’’ and it goes thus:

                                                                     As sepals to a flower;
                                                                    Be your brother’s keeper
                                                                    As food is to the sower;
                                                                  Never eat alone, it does matter
                                                                Breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper;
                                                                 Never let another mouth be a filter.

                                                                       As balm of Gilead to a healer;
                                                                          Be your brother’s keeper
                                                                      If it is a thorn, be the remover;
                                                                       Never let him tread on danger
                                                                           In your tongues lies power;           
                                                                     Lift his soul and make him stronger.

                                                                            As the Lord is a strong tower;
                                                                             Be your brother’s keeper
                                                                           As a city is guarded by soldier;
                                                                        Watch the back of your brother
                                                                      Life was given to you as a partaker;
                                                                        Don’t put another’s life on the wire.

                                                              As lions get their families covered;
                                                                    Be your brother’s keeper
                                                             As a lonely animal against a pack suffer;
                                                     Will you hurt your brothers to be a lone ranger?
                                                           All you have was given, not by your power;
                                           Will you flex your muscle and not heed to these words brother?

It has been an awesome day with you diary. Remember to be your brother’s keeper. See you again soon by His grace. Adios!
