Keep Your Friends Closer - poem (27.03.2011)
“We are not enemies, but friends.
We must not be enemies.
Though passion may have strained,
it must not break the bonds of our affection.” - Abraham Lincoln
We are all together in this.
We are together, all one family.
It is the closeness that we share
that will keep us tightly compacted together.
One unit, one body, for all we have is each other.
Although it may not seem a lot
the truth is, it is greater than anything else in this world.
For we come from an even greater family in another realm.
So let us join hands, and hold on with our dear lives.
With all of our strength.
Because it is with the help of each other that we will survive
This mean, nasty, cruel world in which we live in.
The one that is under the evil doers spell.
The reason why so many of us are destined to hell.
But when we depart from each other
and fight like enemies
we cause ourselves to fall, like Adam and Eve in Genesis.
When we have world wars
and refuse to help our brothers and sisters
the distance between us becomes greater
And we never find peace
Because we have shunned peace away
and so we are left alone and astray
This is why we must not be enemies, but friends.
When we are friends, life becomes easier to bear
And no more will we have to cry tears.
Even when trouble comes our way
and though passion may have strained
If we are close, surely we can still maintain?
That everlasting love between us all
For we shall not let the bad things break the bonds of our affection
And instead, continue on with devotion and determination.
So march forth, oh yeah people
Into a world named Zion,
And carry on I tell you, carry on.
Into a world full of hope and promises which can never be broken
Because they were made by an unbreakable person.
Inspired by Abraham Lincoln's speech, and a song by Jean Luc.
