Hate, betrayal, deceit
Love, compassion, forgiveness,

Interpretation of dreams given,
guided and directed amongst familiarity
Honor in colors, motivation driven.

A promise to fulfill
Brothers seeking superiority and security
Seek their own will.

Held in a pit of jealousy and fear
Where’s the eldest?
Never alone, God is near.

A connected life, chained and sold
A father who weeps
A heart grows old.

Overturn of brothers brought
Deceit and lies
Never hidden from God, son not forgot.

Prison release, time and protection
Empowered with dreams told
Walked amongst other’s inspection.

Guidance given in thirteen years
Learning to serve
Through hard work, heartache and tears.

Time didn’t erase a brotherly death deed
God remembered sin
Cautioned and warned with heed

No revenge directly sought
For a brother’s life given for another
God’s merciful preservation brought.

Brother’s evil intentions didn’t protect
but God found a way
to preserve descendants and family connect

A promise kept
Forgiveness given
Grace found in colors wept.

 

Genesis 41-47
