Item 1: POEM
heaven sent from our father above,
bonded by the power of love.
No matter what family has each others back,
when push comes to shove.
understanding, never demanding,
all for one and one for all,
I will never leave you alone standing.
one in itself, my love is your love,
your pain is my pain, my wealth is your wealth,
I promise to never leave you by yourself.
the strongest team, the strongest unit;
if love could be visualized,
family would be the blue print.
forgiveness and patience,
it’s sweeter than the sweetest fragrance,
the power of family is a reflection of Gods compassion and magnificence.
never turning our back, and never shames,
lend my helping hand and not a finger pointing the blame.
No matter what a family bond can never be broken,
even through a nuclear explosion,
if one of us lives we all live.
Forever to eternity, we are family,
my father, my mother, my brother and me.
Author : Antony-Tyrone Smith

Item 2: SHORT STORY
The Swallow and the Other Birds
It happened that a Countryman was sowing some hemp seeds in a field where a Swallow and some other birds were hopping about picking up their food. “Beware of that man,” quoth the Swallow. “Why, what is he doing?” said the others. “That is hemp seed he is sowing; be careful to pick up every one of the seeds, or else you will repent it.” The birds paid no heed to the Swallow’s words, and by and by the hemp grew up and was made into cord, and of the cords nets were made, and many a bird that had despised the Swallow’s advice was caught in nets made out of that very hemp. “What did I tell you?” said the Swallow. Destroy the seed of evil, or it will grow up to your ruin.
- Metaphor: the hemp seed can be seen as the seed of evil in your person. The birds made into cord can be seen as the person who can not control himself, then he is ruined himself.
We need to destroy the seed of your evil, or it will grow up to your ruin. And we also need to pay more attention to what the other says to us.
