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.
