Poem: They Were?
Mob & Michael!
They were the two!
There were many others. But for me it is through the lives, and the lyrics to the songs of the Honorable Robert Nestor Marley & Mr. Michael Jackson which captured and captivated my life and spirit with great irresistible ease, because it was through my own voluntary surrender.
They reminded me that I should always remember, that it doesn't matter what I may have learned in the days of old, from schools ,church about mankind. But time will eventually bring it come down to me, and what I think. So I must be ready instead, to combine the knowledge I learned and the knowledge that I now know and do so for the absolute and sincere benefit of mankind. That I should not gain the world and loose my soul.
They are the two who have shined their lights the brightest on the way that I needed to travel, sometimes even sacrificing their own selves when the going got tough, to insure that foundation on which I stood, remained solid, sound, and firm. Their message was quite clear. One that broke barricades, barriers, and crossed boundaries. One that reminded us that the color of our skin has nothing to do with “Superior or Inferior” Look at the color of the blood which ran through your veins. So that until the color of a man skin is of no more significance, than the color of his eyes or his blood.
That even though many people may fight me down, that I should “Stand Firm” and give the most High God, the thanks and the praises. It really don't matter if we are black or white, it’s our time to teach those who haven't as yet got the truth of it all. It's those two that reminded us, that we are the World, we are the children, and we are the ones to make a brighter day. That we should think about the sun, and the forest, and rain. What about doing good, knowing that it will then be good that we will be gaining as our reward. They were the two from whom; my life snatched more of the living reasons. They were the two whose music I use to uplift my spirit during any rough and difficult seasons. Of course for me, it’s a given that they come in after the Most High God, and my Parents. Those two and I, have nothing to do with fanatical ignorance. I said of course there were many others, but they were the two, that still easily comes before any brothers and sisters, they are to my biological from God, in all truth aren’t we all brothers and sisters , and who are your two? Who are the ones after God and your parents, that you are sure, they will work for you always?
