Poem REASONINGS Part (2)

I am that I am.

I know we have our reasons

For everything that we do.

We are a wise bunch that writes

A way of giving thanks

While exercising our wisdom too

Giving respect to others

As we would love for ourselves.

Today is for you tomorrow for me.

The day we shall call for help

Anyone’s a welcome sight to see

We are wise enough to realize

That the respect we give to others.

Is that same energy

Welcoming all as sisters and brothers.

Whether it’s sanitation worker

Sweeping the corner

Whether is the police man?

Ready to arrest us, unlawful behavior.

It’s our wisdom we need to match wits

Sometime kind’s words, that’s it.

I would not want to be the only one

That follows my own way

No man’s an island

Same meaning yesterday as it is today

Play by the rules, be a good sport

From the beginning, wisdom cannot lose

I heard that when you go to Rome

It’s wise to do like the Romans do

I am sure that over the years

Romans were also taught thing or two.

But listening well, walking good.

Isn’t that’s a good one for you.

I man pick my spots real care fully

Don’t eat it myself, I won’t feed anybody

Even then I must know you real well

Heaven’s chances to me, a lot wiser than Hell.

When Whatever I agree to is no longer allowed

Of the decision I made I be very proud

It’s the reason of the entire world I chose America

After thirty six years I am grateful to her.

There are two worlds’ famous Reggae singers

That I have followed all my life,

One is Peter Tosh and the other is

Hon. Robert Nestor Marley.

As a young boy growing up

Those two meant the world to me.

I made it my solemn duty to listen

And analyze the words

Of all their songs carefully.

I love them both, I found strength

In many of their songs as a young lad

In Peter’s songs I took “I am that I am”

It worked for me through some trying times

While growing up.

They both had their share of trying times as well

I love all Bob’s songs but I will

Make peace with “War”

From there on in life I took the bull

By its horns, I saw a new light

Give thanks and praises!

If I could do it all over again

I would sincerely take the hills

Like in the book of Psalms 121:1

I lift up my eyes unto the hills

From whence cometh my strength.

Because man to man is so unjust.

There is a Reason why all the good guys

Simply “Die” young.

Look at what “we” did to Jesus

Look what we do now!

So I am that I am!

My original choice song for this poem

is Bob Marley's "War"

It was however taken down.

Dont really understand what For .

So I am.

If music be the food of love , play on.

Thanks "AE" You are so sincere, your responses jumps out at me each time making me smile.

That is the Peter tosh, he is a great Jamaican reggae super star, who wrote and sang many rebellious songs as he saw it(the times).

But he rebelled with a cause and I love him .

He died very young , Jesus in the thirties and so many others, this world is the home we know, but all the good guys seemingly are in this big hurry to leave !

I see the flag and am paying attention.

Blessings my dear lady..

Thanks "AE" Beautiful Sunday morning to you Give thanks Well for that poem I had two songs in mind either one of my heroes Robert Nestor Marley or his one time music partner Peter Mc (Tosh)Intosh They mentioned something, but I to matured to get upset at anything but the man selfishly coming to take my life. Need to get that adrenaline , to produce that Dopa mine where one walks through steel.and do not feel.

I simply switch I am grateful to use this site so I let my gratitude "Rebuke" any demons that come up against my humble likeness. See the Devil do not stop for nothing he is relentless in his pursuit of unsuspecting souls .

But he is a Liar , myself and Liars don't too much get along. Give Thanks and praises to the Most High God.

It's not something that you did to the video. This has happened to mine before too. I think it has something to do with the company or probably the artist not wanting it taken off utube, i really don't know for sure..See ya..Cheers

A lion indeed !

A roar that's subliminal by design, but can easily be heard without listening , it's natural to stealthy and soar!

He remains king but only in his jungle.

Hello there Jean Bakula. Grateful and sincere Thanks. Let me let truth ring through first, while I am saying that you beat me to the punch. Your picture grabbed me from a while back when I saw it , I planned to visit unannounced, as is the custom.

So welcome , and Blessings and thanks for reading .

From the first I heard this man I knew there was something special for me , and all the way through school in the islands, I constantly looked forward to what's next .

The very last concert I did before leaving school, was to sing and play the bass guitar to "War" that day remains alive in me to this day. We will share much more on Mr. Robert in near future time Blessup. I'll be over to visit soon.

Give Thanks..

Cardisa /Samuda, thanks you so much, first for reading, then for loving this poem , but I know my hero had some to do with it.

I will forever Love the man Bob Marley and what he bought to my life at a time when I believe the entire world needed it , primarily the islands.

I even more grateful for him and the wailers for being a mentor for the master batsman Viv Richards , now Sir Vivian Richards and correctly so. .

Am in one of those moods, so I also thank you for being such a great example of what this thing Hp should be all about.

You know I am all male , guess with so much Love for my mom you are little jealous. lol

Blessings and One love ..Til we write again.

Hello Sky9106,

I couldn't pass up a hub about Bob Marley, I adore the man and everything he wrote or sang. I guess maybe it's true only the good die young. He is still a huge legend in Jamaica, but few days go by when I don't listen to his pleas to end war and try to understand each other a little better.
