Not All Open Doors Where Opened By God - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a place called America there lived boy named Bernard. He was a strong Christian boy and he came from a long generation of strong Christian leaders who were sometimes preachers or world changing business men and women.   Bernard was just about through with his High School education. He applies for ORU and expects an acceptance letter but that week he not only received an acceptance letter from ORU, he also received a letter from Harvard.   Bernard thinks things through and he later begins to strongly consider going to Harvard. A close female friend of his tells him to pray about it and make sure that it’s God’s will before he makes his decision, but Bernard’s other friends tell him to choose Harvard that it’s not even something he has to think about.   Bernard goes to Harvard and with time he begins to wane in his spiritual growth. Soon he joins a fraternity and the culture and mindset of the world gradually seep through his skull and bones.Bernard soon stops going to the campus fellowship and he stops reading as much as he used to and falls into the trap of partying, partying and partying. At the end of the semester Bernard had failed in his school work so bad that he was kicked out of Harvard.   He looked back on his life and wondered where he had gone wrong and then he realized that it is not about how bright an opportunity seems, it is about being where God wants you to be. NOT ALL OPEN DOORS WHERE OPENED BY GOD. God knew that Bernard could not survive in a secular environment like Harvard and still keep his focus and maintain his spiritual walk. That was why God wanted him to go to a Christian School. He should have asked God what he wanted for his life, waited to get an answer, and obey whatever God gives him. For that is the only one true road to success. A road we should walk everyday.
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'…

Sunday Morning Blues - a poem by Alfred

The Sun rays slowly crawls through my window/
It kisses my closed eyelids with Gusto/
My eyes roll open like a hand of Ludo/
I stretch Good Morning like I'm practising Judo/
I Growl like a Lion on a half empty stomach/
I praise the God who gave me Life with No Buts/
The Sunday Morning air beats all Pizza Huts/
Fancy trying to put Happiness in a Box/
I Decrease the weight of my cereal box/
Church Bells ring, Christianity Walks/
It's a day we all remember our Christian Walk/
Even radios remember and play Gospel Songs/
I hear no fighting or quarreling behind closed doors/
Yelp, it's Sunday alright, even when it pours/
There's something about Sundays that always oozes joy/
A Day of Rest, A Day of worshipping God/
Sunday Morning Blues stretches beyond the church/
Rejoice in the Lord whether or not you go to church/
But don't forsake Spiritual Growth, you'll grow in Joy/
And the Sunday Morning Blues won't leave Monday Morn'/
