I’ill Be Having A Little Brother Soon - a short story by A.B.King

   10 years old Barney knew something was up but he just didn’t know what it was. His parents had been acting a bit strange lately.
   Since they were not going to tell him, he decided to eavesdrop when his parents where alone in the kitchen.
   In spite of how many times he had been told that eavesdropping is wrong and a good Christian shouldn’t dream of eavesdropping no matter what, Barney still choose to eavesdrop when his Mum and Dad where both doing the dishes. Barney didn’t hear much of the conversation but he heard his Mum asking his Dad; “How do you think Barney would take having a little brother?”
   “I think he would just have to take it rather nicely”, his Dad answered.
   That’s it, Barney thought. That’s why they’ve been acting so strange. He was going to have a little brother.
   Barney was so excited that he was going to have a little brother to play with. He was not going to be an only child anymore. He decided to prepare. He was going to be a big brother. He started working out; just in case he needed to protect his little brother. He started reading more; so that his little brother can have a really smart big brother to be proud of. He started cleaning his room; so his little brother can have a neat big brother to emulate.
   Barney’s parents noticed all the changes in Barney and wondered what had come over him. They tried all they could to find out but they came up with nothing.
    Barney used all his piggy bank money to buy some cool new baby stuff that he taught were too cool for his parents to know about and therefore can’t buy for the baby themselves.
   Barney’s Mum later found the baby stuff that Barney had bought carefully hidden in his bedroom, when she went to get his laundry.
   Barney’s parents asked for an explanation and he told them that he knew he was going to have a little brother that he had heard them talk about it in the kitchen.
   His parents laughed and told him they were talking about a sitcom they had watched that has a character named Barney.
   Barney’s parents told him it served him right that all his piggy bank money had been wasted. That’s what he gets for eavesdropping instead of being the modest Christian kid they have been teaching him to be. And as for his becoming neat and now reading more, and working out more; that’s a good thing.

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 …
