A Wedding Ring For The Woman Behind The Mask - by A.B.King


   Melinda had just been proposed to by the most famous and wealthiest face in Hollywood. The problem was; she was already married. She had been married long before she started her own legendary Hollywood career. Her husband had been a dear to her but let’s face it, he wasn’t even a VIP by any standards. She was the one who had all the money and fame. She was the bread winner and the one whose life mattered in her eyes or so everything and everyone around her said to her mind.
   Now this secret affair that she had been having with Hollywood’s number one actor; Andy has turned into a marriage proposal that would have to go public.
   Melinda felt that what was in her heart to do was the wrong thing to do but she blurted out, “YES!”
   When Melinda’s husband, William heard about it, his heart totally shattered. He loved Melinda with all his heart. He couldn’t imagine life without her.
   She packed out of their home which was in his name and told him that he can take it that she would soon be living with Andy.
   The Newspapers, Celebrity TV shows, blogs and Hollywood obsessed tweets all said that it was the right move for Melinda.
   The public wanted to see two of their favorite celebrity actors living together.
   Everyday of Melinda’s life was now filled with one futile attempt after another by William (her husband) to get her back.
   Nothing William did seemed to even make Melinda bat an eyelid.
   William refused to sign the divorce papers. He couldn’t bear to sign them until Andy secretly had some men beat him up badly and make him sign it. After which they beat him up some more and threw him on the side of the road outside the city, with him covered in blood. He was warned never to return to Hollywood or else he would be killed.
   William didn’t know what to do. He didn’t consider himself a Christian now, and he couldn’t consider himself a Christian for the last 25 years of his life too. But he had been raised in a Christian home so he knew who to call on when all hope was lost.
   William prayed to God and begged God for forgiveness. He rededicated his life to Christ and begged God to save his marriage.
   Andy showed Melinda the divorce papers that it had been signed and so they can now go ahead and marry.
   Melinda asked how come he signed it. She had secretly loved how he fought against signing it and a part of her was disappointed that he did.
   Andy lied to Melinda that he offered Andy money and he took it. Andy told her that Willam was only interested in her money. For some reason that didn’t sound right to Melinda but she quickly brushed it aside as Andy pressed a kiss against her lips.
   On the wedding day, as the Priest asked Andy if he would love to take Melinda Campbell as his lovely wedded wife, Andy corrected the Priest as he answered he said; “Yes! I would love to take the LEGENDARY Melinda Campbell to by my lawfully wedded wife.”
   At that moment it hit Melinda. Andy was only marrying her because she was a Hollywood legend too.
   Andy was just marrying the star she has become. But her William married her and loves her because of the individual that she is without all the facade of Hollywood put over her. He loves the woman behind the mask of fortune and fame but Andy only loves the woman because of the mask.
   The wedding ring that she was giving up was offered to the woman behind the mask. The woman that she was before she even came to Hollywood when everybody else taught she was a nobody. William saw her as a somebody. In fact he saw her as someone so special so much that he offered her a wedding ring, but as Andy.
   Melinda began to even wonder if Andy has ever seen the woman behind the mask before.
   Melinda took off her wedding vail. Just then the Priest asked her if she would take Andy to be her lawfully wedded husband.Melinda shouted, “NO I WON’T.”
   Then she turned around to get the man who offered a ring to the woman behind the mask before the mask even existed many years ago.

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:
