In times past
There were giants
Walking the Black earth
Delaney, Douglass, Garvey, King and X

We know that now because we can see
Their tremendous silhouettes
Against the horizon of history

But the little people who followed them
Could not see them against dawn or dusk
They looked up @ them, with faith

In their righteousness, the justness
Of their causes. Minding not
The hot glare of midday white disapproval

They relaxed in the cool shade
Of righteous goliaths
Stretching from the dawn of history
To the dark dusk of hope

  1. OBAMA POEM = UNYIELDING HONOR WORLD WAR III

    Weakness invites moral plight, war and aggression
    Encouraged by mistrust, misjudgment and delay.
    All we love can be destroyed and transformed
    By the powers of darkness maneuvering our way.

    When something wicked stares us in the face
    To corrupt our morals, faith and resolve.
    God gives us courage to defend what’s right
    No matter the sacrifice or danger involved.

    Evil seeks to destroy the good in man
    And silence the memory of God’s law.
    It’s up to the faithful to stay unyielding
    Defending the liberty and justice of all.

    Our men and woman who serve in harm’s way
    Are the armor of what the free world depends on.
    Without their sacrifice of body and soul
    All that we stand for is gone.

  2. OBAMA POE[M] = THEY SERVE TO PRESERVE

    They serve to preserve our forefathers dreams,
    Prayers, visions and determination.
    Risking all in pursuit of fulfillment of duty
    To God, freedom, faith, honor and nation.

    Despite dismemberment, death and loneliness
    Patriots enlist to safeguard our flag.
    With honor, faith, purpose and courage
    They battle the sadistic that brag.

    Throughout man’s past as a creature of earth
    War has always plagued his expectance.
    Greed, hate, fear, envy and rage
    Have overruled rapture and repentance.

    David was a soldier who lived by his faith
    Which gave him the will to become brave.
    He stood up to terror and toppled the giant
    Leaving Goliath headless and alone in his grave.

    David’s call thrives in hearts of soldiers today
    Shielding liberty from the warmongers of hell.
    Facing down evil refusing to summit
    Ensuring freedom and justice are alive and well.

  4. HEAVEN’S HEROES

    Winning souls tend to change everything,
    Including who and what we are.
    When our darkness within transforms to light
    And our eyes have the luster of a star.

    We must always pray for the lost among us
    Who eagerly race toward the wrong direction.
    So they may know their own repentance
    Blessed by God’s, grace, love and protection.

    All of Heaven’s heroes have suffered remorse
    From hate, fear, lust, loneliness and war.
    They do what they do with deliverance of heart
    Defeating the dark side of life and more.

    Noah found safety within the beams of his ark
    To endure Heaven’s cleansing of earth.
    Moses the deliverer, climbed a mountain
    Descending with God’s guidelines of worth.

    David the shepherd, a boy among men
    Slew evil’s giant with a flying stone.
    Samson the strong man, broke from his chains
    Toppling the temple with God’s help alone.

    Jonah was swallowed by a monster fish
    To be cast up on shore with a prophecy to tell.
    Jesus of Nazareth was nailed to the cross
    And without His forgiveness we’re doomed to fail.

    Lord I’ll feel blessed to greet all your heroes
    When it is my time to escape my woes.
    I’ll clutch their hands and kiss their face
    As we celebrate the journey we chose.

  5. POETS ARE THE BELL RINGERS of THE SOUL

    Poets as a rule are high on adventure
    Like wondering bards or prophets today.
    Embracing hearts and minds with wisdom
    Casting through verse their visions at play.

    Poets have their dreams and their nightmares
    Of love, life, death, faith and war.
    They feel the pain and tragedy of others
    Even those they’ve never met before.

    They fan the flames of human compassion
    With their stories of the failings of man.
    Professing to follow a higher power
    As they recruit whomever they can.

    Poets are the bell ringers of the soul
    As they depict the past, the present and beyond.
    They sound their alarm of what lies ahead
    As the missteps of man live on.

  6. HAITI EARTHQUAKE MEMORIAL POEM = 2010

    Sorrow is better than laughter
    For by grieving, we’re improved.
    Blessed be all who morn
    Till from sadness they’re removed.

    After death our souls shall fly
    Perhaps from star to star
    Reaching our destination
    To find Heaven’s gate ajar.

    God made us able to cry
    Sorrow teaches us to fear
    Those days were selfish and cruel
    When life is so short and dear.

    Time wipes tears from all faces
    Whose hearts are tuned to sorrow.
    Those that cry a thousand tears
    Shall be blessed by tomorrow.

    Tears are the raindrops of the soul
    And there’s one for all who die.
    They are the silent words of grief
    As they fall free from the eye.

    The shortest verse in the Bible
    Is the one where Jesus wept
    So, if you hold back tears, shed them
    When your pains too harsh to accept.

    Tears are lovelier than a smile
    When they come from those you love
    As they seek relief from sadness
    When you’re summoned from above.

    Tears are a love-mates humble gift
    When it’s time to say goodbye
    Though the eyes are wet and swollen
    With time and patience they dry.

  7. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

    Dr. King, one of the most influential black leaders
    Was born to a minister and a teacher of school.
    Educated to where he earned his P.H.D.
    Becoming a pastor marching against what was unfair and cruel.

    Leading a boycott to protest bus segregation
    As he preached and marched for freedom for all
    He was jailed, threatened, spat on and beaten
    As for peaceful demonstration he would call.

    Marching to Washington, In 1963
    Voicing concern for the plight of the poor.
    Soon there after, he was killed by a sniper
    In Memphis, supporting workers rights and more.

    Dr. King will be remembered down through history
    With words for all to prayerfully remember.
    To be judged, not by color, but by character
    Shunning violence never to surrender.
