Poem : I Am. We are!

Updated on January 4, 2012

I am. We are!

There is only

one single way

In this entire life

that we would all


end up going

It's inevitable

Because we are

the only ones

Who holds t

hose keys

To our destiny.

You and I

must always

thank the

Most High God

For furnishing us

with great parents.

And rewarding

our parents with

great kids like us.

because they

did not allow us

to take that

very long way

which is known as

the wrong way

Now here we are .

well knowledgeable

of their thoughts.

Both my parents

They said son:

You can only

Take the horse

to the water,

But never can you

Make it drink,

We were once

also your age,

It was not easy


All kids tend

to first act

after which

they may then

start thinking,

Because somehow

Their believe

that parents

will always be there

to take care.

of everything

No one ever

taught them

That theory.

But from a baby

they knew how

it was going to be

somehow they

are so correct.

To them it was

Action speaks

louder than words.

Many times while

I was young

I tended to feel

that my parents

Were always

picking on me

out of the three

I was the youngest.

But my parents

They also knew

that with kids

That's the way

it would be.

It again was also

action speaks

Louder than words

Though I did

not understand

with the exception

of Great parents.

They always have

their own ideas

Of what they don’t

want their children

to become.

They knew that

one day

the children will

be grown enough

to see where


comes from!.

I am sure that’s

how it was

For you and me.

What does anyone

Expect from kids?

We all did same

as youngsters

But I am sure

That we have all

grown enough

to understand,

That biggest man

We would

ever see,

Was himself also

once a baby.

I say yes to

this one of my


Bob Marley.


After all the years

I spent

sincerely listening

to the lyrics

of his songs,

I have sinced

proudly matured

enough to understand

that important

meaning of

those words

quite clearly.

We all have

our own chosen

roads to follow,

No one but

our parents

Can tell us.

On which road

We are not


That’s the beauty

Of growing up,

We can always

make it appear

That we are


While knowing

none but


Can really tell

whether or not

We have swallowed.

Still there is

only one way

even though

we already know

that man to man

Is so unjust

We must move

among others

of this same


To find the ones

We are able

To trust.

Even Jesus could

Not do it alone,

So on that cross

he got thrown

for us.

Those very

same things

will happen

To you and I

Some would

eat and drink

with you

Feel we are

merely Joking

so they sew sew

behind our backs

They cannot

who we are

in this kingdom

but they must

know who

I am!

      Was worried for a moment , but genuineness is not easily troubled, and for me it's what's in a name just call me. lol

      I came by your hubs last night , as I will again do tonight, when I answer, then you will again smile.

      Thanks for everything poetvix, you are special in my book.

      There is none like you Frank , and I am quite pleased to think that I understand a part of your character . These are the methods of success handed down for generations , now do you see what a little extra money sometimes do?

      But there is none wealthier than a great character .

      It's not about how much money you have , it's about how , you truly feel, and not only inside , everyplace.

      Stay real.

      I agree with Poetvix.. you praise the most high Lord.. and do it with class. you praise your parents also with class.. and the first part of this Hub rings so true.. we are all in it together and no one can get off this world alive.. or take things with you when we die.. another great Hub.. you know what.. I'm still thinking about the first Hub and those pictures.. can't really shake them loose.. bless you Sky

      Thank you so much chris . It feels so much more appreciated when someone comes out of no where I would like to say , and simply brightens up your day. My day is always brightened when I remind another of anything of importance , but when it is the Most High God , parents, family , love and understanding, those just simply takes the cake. I have come to realize that many people nowadays don't like deep thinking , and that's where our individual answers resides!

      It is not every time I know how any one of the things that I do will end. But what I do know its what I am putting in at the start, if that carries through in a conscious persons mind . Then Bless!

      Thanks chris for reading and a most definite heart felt comment, it makes for a great day , I felt you! I will b3 stopping by as soon as I can in keeping with my way.

      Bless brethren.

      Thank you so much Eddy . I am always grateful when you read and comment and I do appreciate each and every one. Thank you .Here is a small incite I believe that a journey of one thousand miles starts with just that tiny step. I know where I am heading and exactly what I need do, I am not looking to get rich , but that should also be a side effect of what I have embarked on, quite sometime ago, where I truly lead I follow , but with the encouragement of your first poem this day . Don't give up till you get to the top, my top is and answer to my own question in poetry . "How is your life doing"

      My answer should be beyond the shadow of any doubt:

      "I did my best"

      The only difference with me is I do mean the things I say, and this here is everything. I am grateful for meeting so many talented and beautiful souls here, along the way, it's by far the most beautiful collection, but it's not a rest stop in any way or even my final stop, but it's the best podium so far, and my pleasure being here.

      Give God the praise, I will soon send you a video of my birthplace, it may inspire you as it inspired me 52 years ago.Thanks again Eddy it means a whole lot.

      this is really say a lot in these words.

      love and respect of family and parents are always worthy to write about.

      Thank you poetvix, most sincere thanks , and I know that you know it's not the easiest of roads , but faith in that which you believe, must be allowed to shine.

      I love your name ,but each and every time I am about to write it something tells me to make this joke with you purposely misspell your name to read positive fix. lol hope it make you smile.

      Thanks for you always encouraging comments.

      Will be your way soon thank you.

      While your theme to our most high Lord remains a constant theme, the poems just get better and better. The honor and respect you show your parents and your faith is inspiring. God bless.
