But I Want To Spend My Christmas Holiday Elsewhere - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Sasha. She was raised in a nice Christian family and right now she had a bit of a problem with her parents.   Her parents wanted them to spend Christmas at Grandma’s, but Sasha wanted to go to a fun family camp like her friends. The camp was so well equipped and cool that it made kids forget about Disney land even though it wasn’t as big as Disney land in size. It was like 2 camps in one. One for kids, and the other for grown ups and parents.   Sasha didn’t understand why her parents didn’t want to go to the camp. If they went to the camp; everybody wins. They would get to have fun at the grown ups section and she would get to have fun at the kiddies section.   Sasha’s parents still insisted they go to Grandma’s. They were firm about it, they weren’t going to budge.   Sasha begins crying but her parents are already quite used to her starting to cry only to get her way.   As Sasha’s Mum sighs because of Sasha’s crying; the phone rings and Sasha’s Mum tells her husband to start packing as she answers the phone.   Sasha waited for her parents to come back so that she would resume her crying from where she left off. There was no point in crying when nobody was there. However, her parents seemed to be taking too much time and soon Sasha’s eyes begins to get heavy.   Seconds later, when Sasha opens her eyes; she is an old lady. It is Christmas and she is waiting for her grand children to come see her, but the hands for the clock keep ticking & ticking away and there still is no knock at the door after 3 hours of waiting.   The pain of being lonely at such an old age wraps around her heart and Sasha feels its bitter grip killing her.   With each passing hour, Sasha fell deeper and deeper into the open well of loneliness. She wondered why none of her children or grand children would come and see her. She felt rejected, old, worn out and unloved. The mere taught of her kids not wanting to spend time with her at Christmas made her skin itch.   More hours passed by and still their was no knock on her door from any of her children. Then her boredom skyrockets until she can’t take it anymore.   Sasha screams and wakes up out of her dream.   Her parents protectively rush to Sasha to see why she’s screaming.   Sasha stands up and cries out with conviction, “I WANT TO GO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH GRANDMA RIGHT NOW. I WON’T GO ANYWHERE ELSE.”
The End.

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?/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

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 …
