My Sisters and Brothers, Don’t You, Can’t You, Won’t You, See? – A Poem

(Photo: File)

By Stephen Brackens Brinkley

We are all interconnected
We are all interdependent
We are all part of the One

My Sisters and Brothers,
Don’t you see?

Every microcosm is reflective of the macrocosm
As above so it is below
We are all each other’s keepers in the Human Family

My Sisters and Brothers,
Can’t You See?

Every ripple in the Supreme Lord’s pond
Makes its way to the largest lake where
It is eventually felt even in the farthest Ocean

My Sisters and Brothers,
Won’t You See?

  1. I dedicate this to my Palestinian Sisters and Brothers, their struggle so dear to my heart, and to all the Human Family, with all the love I know, Stephen. <3

  2. Yes! Don’t you! Can’t you! Won’t you! These eternal questions which each of us must struggle to answer if it does not come naturally and easily as it once did before we LEARNED NOT to SEE!!! Thank you, Stephen! In solidarity. Palestine will be free. <3

    • My brother James Williamson, would that everyone had your passion and your heart. There is never a doubt that you will “get it”. I am proud to be in the struggle with you.
