Let My People Go - a short story by A.B.King


   Once upon a time in the medieval ages, a bunch of kids decided to run away from their homes. They dreamed of travelling the world and finding adventure, a better life and maybe even lots of gold.
   After spending some months journeying from one kingdom to the other the tough times made them hit the realization that their decision to run away was more of selfishness and stupidity than anything else so they decided to return home.
   They returned only to find their home kingdom had been conquered by an evil magician and all their parents and all the people of the land had been forced to become slaves.
   The kids were forced to become slaves too.
   One night, Victor, one of the kids had a dream and in that dream he found himself alone in a very large hall. The only source of light in that hall was at the center of the hall were a large beam of light the circumference of an apple barrel shone down from the ceiling way up high above unto the ground. Victor started walking closer to it. When he got right in front of it he noticed a big book on the ground. The light from the ceiling was actually shinning on this book.
   Victor squinted to get a better look at this book that was inside this huge beam of light and noticed words where written on the cover of the book. He squinted even more and saw that the words written were, “Holy Bible.”
   Victor decided to reach through the bright beam of light but as he slowly stretched his hand to pick up the book, not too sure of whether he should or should not, he woke up from the dream.
   Days later while Victor was carrying out his slave assignment for the day at a construction site he noticed a book which 3/4 of it was buried in the sand. He went to it and pulled out the book. Lo and behold on the cover of the book were the words, “Holy Bible.”
   Victor started reading and studying the bible. Whether he knew it initially or not God had started teaching and training him.
   Victor read up to the point where he understood the concept of salvation so he said the salvation prayer and the prayer to receive the Holy Ghost therefore he became a born again Christian.
   Weeks had passed since Victor found the bible. He tried to convince his friends about the beautiful things the bible talks about but they all laughed at him and told him that he’s going crazy, that all the slave work is getting to his head and damaging things.
   Victor started to fervently pray for the freedom of his people.
   The other kids decided to join a group that planned to run away from the kingdom. They asked Victor to join them but Victor told them that he has dedicated his life to Christ so he now only does only things that God wants him to do so he is going to ask God for direction. If God says he should go with them then he would go but if God says that he shouldn’t go with them then he won’t go with them.
   The other kids taught Victor was crazy but Victor went to pray and God told him not to go. Victor came out of his place of prayer and told the other kids that God told him not to go with them so he won’t go with them.
   They taught Victor had flipped, but anyway they carried on with their plan to run away from the kingdom but they were caught by the evil magician’s men and where punished severely.
   A group of men decided to gather up a lot up people to start a rebellion and even though they normally won’t ask boys to join they were hard pressed for more people to fight so they asked Victor to join them.
   Victor didn’t even bother to pray and ask God if it is his will for him to join them, he just bluntly refused. He told them that violence is against God’s perfect will.
   The people were angry with Victor for not joining them and for what they taught was simply talking crazy. Anyway, they went ahead with their plan but they were quickly defeated and locked up in a dungeon.
   One day while reading the story of Moses again, Victor got stirred up in the spirit and figured if God can use Moses to set his people free then God can use him to set his own people free. Victor decided to pray about going before the evil magician and after hours of prayer he heard God tell him he can go.
   Victor went before the evil magician and threw down a rod he had picked on his way in front of him expecting the rod to become a snake but sadly nothing happened.
   Victor looked for a quick plan B, he didn’t know what to do. What would he say? Time was flying. Suddenly, he declared to the evil magician that God wants him to let his people go.
   The evil magician laughed and told Victor that Victor’s God bows before him, that he (the magician) is all powerful and all knowing.
   As soon as the evil magician said that, the whole building started shaking, then the ground opened up and swallowed the evil magician. How dare he say that he is greater than God.
   The evil magician’s men on witnessing this all ran away from the kingdom and never came back. Thus Victor’s people where now set free and they all gave their hearts to Christ because they now knew just how awesome God is.

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 …
