Angels Watch Over Us While We Sleep - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time there lived a little boy named Kelvin. He was a good boy but he was afraid of the dark and he was scared that that was when the boggie man comes to get little kids.He is afraid to tell his mum of his fears too.   Kelvin’s elder sister used Kelvin’s fears to prey on him.   Kelvin’s Mum figured out what something was wrong but Kelvin doesn’t want to tell her what it isThat night Kelvin’s Mum she refuses to leave his bedroom light on and he begs and begs and begs.Kelvin’s Mum’s suspicions where right, her son was afraid of the dark.   There was no point in pretending anymore so Kelvin tells his Mum everything. He tells her that he is afraid of the dark and of the boggie man.   Kelvin’s Mum’s explains to him that God cares about us so much that not a strand of hair of ours falls to the ground without him knowing. He always watches and protects those who are his and give his Angels charge to watch over us when we are awake and when we are asleep too. She also told him that the boggie man wasn’t real that it was all in his mind.   Kelvin gained confidence. He trusting in God. If God had put Angels around him to protect him then surely nothing and no one could harm him.   Kelvin’s Mum kissed Kelvin on his forehead and stood up to leave. She intended to leave the light on for Kelvin but he requested that she put it off.   Kelvin’s Mum smiled. She put off the light and then she left.   As Kelvin closed his eyes to sleep, he heard a voice that said, “I hate the light but now that it’s dark there is nothing stopping me from coming to get you, now you should be very afraid, you better run and go crying to Mummy.”   Immediately Kelvin responded very audibly, I’m not afraid of you, why should I be? God’s Angels are keeping watch over me and believe me you do not want to make them mad.
The End.

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
