I Thought You Were My Brother?

I Thought You Were My Brother?


You say you’re my brother,

yet pretend I’m not there,

You shut me out of your life,

And don’t even care.


Do I “fit the mold” of what you think

a brother should be?

 Are you thinking just of yourself,

and a lot less of me???


I tried to call you, and you hung up the phone…

Then tell me I’m not invited

to your home.


You hypocrite!  You fool! 

Who are you kidding?

You’re not an example of Jesus

 by the way you’re living.


The Bible says love is patient,

 gentle and kind.

You can’t love just the 99,

and leave me behind.


If you continue to “choose”

whom you’ll love and avoid…

True Godly love in your life

will never be enjoyed.


By thinking and dwelling on that

which was done in the past,

You’ll miss out on a freedom

 in Christ that’ll last!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
