The Couple That Adopted The Devil - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a place called America, there lived a lovely couple. This lovely couple didn’t believe in God and believed those who did were irrational.
   The Couple couldn’t have children of their own so they decided to adopt one.
   They ended up adopting the most adorable looking 9 year old they had ever seen. He had beautiful short blonde hair, big baby-blue eyes and the most angelic smile that have ever rested on the face of a child.
   It wasn’t long before their precious little boy started showing signs of questionable sainthood. He seemed to derive pleasure in mischief. Soon the couple where having sleepless nights and sleepy days.
   Weird things then began to happen and I’m talking really weird like: the couple going to sleep at night in their beds and waking up the next day outside the house on the front lawn, all the mirrors in the house mysteriously missing, finding weird sea food in their refrigerator, and the most troubling of all dreaming the same dream everyday – dreaming about the day they adopted the boy.
   The Couple worked in the same company and they soon told some close co-workers over lunch break about what they were going through.
“The child may be possessed by demons I suggest you take him to church.”, a co-worker said.
“Nonsense, there is no such thing as demons and there is no such thing as angels and there is no such thing as a God. The world came into being from a big bang. In know that bangs and explosions tend to destroy things, but the big bang was an explosion that actually gave life.”, came the response.
   The couple resorted to visiting all kinds of psychologists but only succeeded in spending a lot of money and getting nowhere.
   It was not until the couple woke up one Tuesday in the middle of the night to find their little angel standing over them with a knife in his hand that they knew they had to try God. Thank God they woke up when they did or else they would have been killed in their sleep.
   However, they weren’t out of the woods yet, they spent most of that night running away from their adopted son who was chasing them around the house with a knife in his hand. Hours later the child mysteriously stopped, fainted and lay still on the ground.
   Without a second to lose they carried the boy straight to the church and waited for day to break and the Pastor to show up. Even though it wasn’t a Sunday they knew that the Pastor always came to church every other day to pray.
   As soon as the Pastor came, he didn’t say a word he just reached for the sleeping child and lay his right hand on him.Immediately, the child woke up and started acting all creepy and weird: rolling on the floor, screaming insanely and making all kinds of animal sounds.
   Minutes later everything stopped and the Pastor told the couple that everything was Ok! now – that all the demons had left the boy.
   From that day onwards the couple believed in God. They became disciples of Jesus and started going to Church. They had seen that there is a world outside the physical AND IT ALSO GOES TO PROVE THAT YOU MAY NOT BELIEVE IN MIRACLES BUT THE DAY YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON ONE YOU WOULD BELIEVE IN THEM.

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 …
