MY DEAR BROTHER

My ever dearest Brother,

       You and I belong to a loving family
Who pays premium to mercy and truth*’s partnership
and considers paramount 
the wise blend of love and justice…
Thus, toleration midst compromise 
versus accommodation along conflicts
is prudently considered.

       Thanks for gently reminding me
this vital Dad and Mom’s virtue-sermon  
when you caught me in a quandary
only both you and I knew, 
apart from God Himself…
Now, I want to reiterate such to you
grateful that we were taught to do what’s right.

       I love you, my dear Brod...
…and yes, I believe that 
you can’t do such 
senseless, stupid thing
if you’re spiritual…
especially that we were raised 
not celebrating Halloween.

*Psalm 25:10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
