Brotherly Love

 

Blood be my brother, brother be my blood

I got love for my brother

What is it to be loved?

The heart of a man

The eyes of a child

The intensity of pain

The essence of a smile

Would I sacrifice myself for my fellow man?

If I should leave this world

Then I would leave it better than

It was when I entered it

For my sons to inherit

For my daughters to benefit

For my sister’s dominion in

For my brothers to strive

For us to be strengthened, and

For my people to rise

Rise like the rose that grew from the mud

Blood be my brother

Brother be my blood
