Loyal To God's Principles - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a place called Los Angeles there lived a little girl named Sarah. She was a good Christian girl with Godly principles. Her Dad was never around; it was just her Mum who had been both mother and father to her since she was born.
   Sarah made the choice to always make the choices that are in line with God’s word.
   Sarah was laughed at and made fun of by her classmates for being a Christian. They called her a fool who believed in fables. They called her old and conservative – refusing to change with the times and sticking to a bunch of rules in an ancient book.
   Sarah didn’t let any of the name calling get to her. She had been trained well by her Mum. In America today when you become a Christian or even say you are one even if you are not one; you just start getting attacked. Suddenly every piece of advice you give becomes “Judgmental.” Every articulate sentence you make becomes “Too Preachy” or Too ”Know-it-all.” Any little thing you do wrong makes you a “hypocrite.” People always find something to condemn a Christian for in every little thing a Christian does or says.
   Sarah’s Mum knew this was the America of Today so she trained her daughter to stand firm on God’s principles in the face of opposition from a world which is unarguably  anti – God in its culture.
   All through school all those around Sarah laughed at her for living her life based on principles but years later - 2 years after Sarah’s graduation from college, Sarah decided to go back to her old town where she grew up and while there she decided to attend her old school reunion. She had never attended one before.
   Before she stepped in the hall someone announced she was about to enter. All eyes turned to the entrance. They wondered what she would look like now. They were curious to find out. They all got ready to laugh and make fun of her. The former student that was MC’ ing the event immediately made up a special joke in his mind to throw at her immediately she walked through the doors.
   As soon as the doors swung open everybody held their breath in anticipation.  The next thing they saw made everybody’s mouth drop open. They were staring at the first woman to become the richest over-all person in the world amongst both males and females. She looked like a queen and her presence changed the atmosphere of the room. She was flanked by her husband who was the 7th richest man in the world and also another gentleman who was also a multi – billionaire.
   It turns out that Sarah changed her name when she started her 1st muti-national co-operation and became famous. She now owned well over 500 companies. In the span of 2years after graduating from college she owned more companies than Richard Branson.      
   Nobody from Sarah’s old school noticed the resemblance between the picture of the richest person in the world which they saw on the cover of magazines and good old Sarah who was always sticking to her bible principles and always refusing to compromise.
   Sarah almost never gave interviews and rarely appeared in public.
  Due to her work in Africa she was tagged the greatest philanthropist that ever lived.
   Now she was standing in front of her old school mates who were all too dumbfounded to speak. She knew the reason why she stood where we stood is because of her unwavering loyalty to God’s principles.
   A man or woman without principles would never go very far. SUCCESS HAS NEVER BEEN ACHIEVED WITHOUT PRINCIPLES.

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 …
