My Brothers Keeper

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

I enter this poem in recognition of the fine spirit we all know here as Bluessadmood,In him I see our best character OUR FINEST HOUR! Thank you

"


ha ha ..its me too ..no lights as usual..thats home ...Iraq..i just arrived home..how optimistic ..ha ha..oh life how funny you are


Our friend Bluessadmood





Who is the happier of us

one that shines within all others sight

Is he the man who attends his ways

to then walk among us by this light

 

For oh the pains this life lays on us

then ask that we should ever prevail

To wish to live a long and fruitful time

account for ourselves and tell the tale

 

Spare us this we might be forgotten

tempted more than once we will endure

In us live the dreams of ancestors

of some noble conscience I am sure

 

Is it not our generous spirit

to that our nature’s highest dower

Ambling now it holds fast our heart

to rescue us in our finest hour

 

So help yourself to the least of us

help them pick up and carry the wares

Only then can we ask for ourselves

to find another who really cares

 

As every rock and tree bears witness

with him walks no company despair

He is the man we all wish to be

the moral being within his care

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
I write this tonight with a friend in mind.I dedicate it to the indomitable spirit we all know here as Bluessadmood .For in him I see our finest hour. Blue is a doctor in Iraq. The horrors he has seen would make us flinch. Yet he still has a upbeat attitude and should be commended .

ohh my friend Tate,really i dont know what say..words just wont tell how i feel
three years i have been here on the cafe..yes..with my lots of knowledge about literature
and the deep love i feel for it ,it was my life..yes i helped a lot around here
i helped so many..i spent long nights reviewing others and trying to find the best
and try make them known to all..i loved this place so i wanted it to be filled with some wonderful talents
really at times i felt it was home..i even wrote about it..this place and so many faces here fill me with joy and pride
as i read their great talent..in short i really got addicted to logging on to here
i just could not stay away..
by the way i hope no one gets frightened by the foto..ha ha
it was taken when the lights at home were out as most of the time
we dont have electricity..and most my writings and reviews
i did on a candle light..still i am so happy i did.blues

Just affirming what I wrote 4 years ago. (I can't believe it's that long ago). How is our friend? Have you heard from him at all. I have never forgotten this fine and lovely Soul.....an inspirational spirit that is for sure. I do worry about him over there with all the horror.

Thank you for your tribute Tate. ~ Helena ~

Great tribute to him, and your words portrays his life has a higher calling. One, as you say, would make us flinch... I enjoy the blend of the music in both poetry and song.

I'm not really sure what, exactly, this poem is about, but I love the rhythm, the rhyme and the choice of words and phrases. You are, I think a man who loves words. (as am I) and knows how to use them to the max. Kudos for wordmanship!
