Poem :Only one Man!

Updated on February 12, 2012

Only one Man!

All men can now

See that from the

Start it's was all

Visibly tempting

For the likes of,

Only one man!

I heard of you

For a long time

Before that thirty

Pieces of silver

For which you

Came hurriedly

Greed started

This knocking

On the door.

There you were

In the darkness

Being tempted

Heart and soul

put to the test

No one else

had any idea

that you were

the devils best

Holding it as

a cold secret

from all the rest

It was you who

Would deny him

three times after

The cock crowed!

Only one man.

You were there

when those nails

were repeatedly

driven through

his feet and hands,

thorns in his head

That same way

that it also went

in the beginning

It was prophesied:

So again it shall

be so in the end.

It all started with

Only one man

Here is one of

those things they

will so often do.

Smile in our face

Same way they

were also up front

pretending with

The lord Jesus too.

To be his most

trusted friends

We saw how they

conspired then

they break bread

with that similar

look just like you

Only one man

Thirty pieces of

Silver filled with

A lifetime of misery

One would always

Live to remember.

After which we saw

Their true colors

Shining through

Those beautiful acts

Were nothing but

Selfishness and lies

When the retribution

begins to arrive

to them it should

Come as no

surprise knowing

that all it took was

Only one man

Believe it or not

We are all here

Living this life

For our own

Special reason

The kids are our

future and we

must feel the need

To be involved in

things that will

be of benefit to

the ones that are

no doubt our future

that will make them

real proud to be

the offspring’s of

Only one man!

I know because

if it was that easy

we would be

inventing instead

of always commenting!

For we are also

Only one man

Could you imagine us?

all doing same thing

going after all.

Feeling that we are

better off having

A total of ten houses.

While others lives

Hungry on the streets

we as individuals

at any on time can be

Only one man!

Even if we build

one garage to hold

About twenty cars

While millions will

have a much better

quality of life

With just a donkey.

Only one man!

Nothing for your

Brother you are

In this race with

Only yourself,

Only one man!

      Thanks brethren Frank. I write them as they come to my mind keeping my eyes on what I know will be the prize, see Rome was not built in one day, and a hurry bird doesn't build a great nest. Words from my mother.

      At this age I don't guess . I had 50 years to do that. My mind is made up, and I am not jealous , remember life if not a destination but a journey.

      Am only one man. I can't use all only that which I need.

      Bless Brethren.
