Poem: It's Coming ..Part (2)

"It’s coming”

One day we would

All gather together,

While being reminded

Of our younger days

Playfully but obediently

Repeating The

Twenty third Psalm

Proudly saying the

“Our Father.”

As our earthly

Mothers and Fathers

Usually engulfed

Glistening with pride

Now we have grown

We are no longer

Believers!

I also heard

the Bible said

That one day

we are helplessly

Going to run to

the rock for rescue

But there will

Be no rock,

No excuses to be

Used as a shelter.

No questions

Whether or not

You are again

asking God

If you are your

Brother’s keeper.


It’s the same

as it ever was,

Once a man

Twice a child

May take sometime,

But everything

In this life

Is only for a while.

No longer time

to laugh,

No longer time

to say that It was

merely a joke

We would now

bearing witness

to our own selves

There we are

Already standing

in great awe

With all the time

it has come

but no place to hide

no place to run

No place to think

But the brain

becomes frozen

that very same time

Unable to think

about anything

Other than those

Warnings

Man had repeatedly

Heard before

From the likes of

His mother

His father

His Priest

His pastor

His brother

His sister

From the Bible

Directly from God

It’s now over for him

will forever be

on him during

his watch.

I know that he

Didn’t see anything

Real as yet

But believe me

“It’s coming”

I would do this favor

One that you will

Remember forever

Without making

The tiniest wager

Because I don’t

do those bets

The answer for

This problem

That man adopted

Is still free

Because the truth

always have a new

least on the

Everlasting life

but first he must

remember

the son of man

died on Calvary?


Take a look

At a troubled child

Reacting

Like he/she been

Possessed

A good long while

with great parents,

the ones that will

Do everything

They possibly can

Their last dime

They already spend

Yet these children

keep acting like

They are already

Grown men and women

Being witness to all

Those wicked things

they continue to do

Their rebellious nature

How it affects everyone

Else around including

The children too

Looks like some

Wretched Evil

Came falling

back on you!

those great

Parents that are

Trying to show

Their children

Some Love.

While those same

Children continue

doing terrible things

Parent’s arms

Outstretched

humbly they speak

Heads fixed to

the Heavens

Asking the

Most High God

Above!

For their parental

Examples

Came only from God

It's known that

Mankind went astray

Like sheep without

A Shepard

God sent his

only begotten son

Knowing that

It's the end

Which just begun

As mankind

Suddenly went on

This steadfast run

A race to nowhere

Believe me

hear me say,

Thy will

Surely be done!

"It’s coming"

Thanks you "AE" The great thing about these poems are there was no way for me to get around it growing up , it was the standards by which we lived , the entire Island was looking at you where ever you go. So I should say I basically shall have no excuses.

Give thanks.

Bless.

I love this one too and I agree with Phdast7, it is very powerful, but the first part I loved more.

No once a man twice a child takes into consideration you saying PHD.

The things you do and say and desire as a child that stage , it don't go back but the limited brain ability, and physical ability, it is what it is and what goes around comes around.

please listen this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9krWBpKa-aQ&feature...

Great question Frank.

Bless.
