I Have Never Met A Poor Person Who Says "Thank You" Freely - an article by A.B.King


   All poor people are to blame for their poverty. It is a hard saying, I know, but it is the Truth.
    If you are poor and reading this; it's your fault. As a matter of fact, if you are reading this right now, you are either middle class or rich.
    Poor people never make it a habit to read motivational or inspirational articles online as to stumble upon this one in the process.
    You see, it is the habits of the poor that keep them poor. It is the activities of the poor that keep them poor.
     Likewise, naturally it is the activities of the rich that keep them rich.
     Of course your activities are determined by your thoughts and outlook.
     Therefore the difference between the RICH and the POOR is the quality of the content of their minds, not in their Bank balance.
      So you begin to see that no matter who becomes President or Ruler in your nation; the poor would keep getting poorer and the rich would keep getting richer.
      Why? 
      Because it has never been a factor outside of ones own personal choices & habits that determines poverty or wealth.
       One fascinating bad habit (among a great many bad habits) is that poor people find it difficult to be quite liberal with their "Thank You's".
       You have to really earn a 'Thank You' from a poor person before they ever say it.
       As a matter of fact, they are quite often prone to take back their 'Thank You' and tell you they are doing so if you do not repeat whatever act of kindness prompted them to give it in the first place.
      One could say, Poor People are stingy with their "Thank You's".
      They treat giving it out like giving out gold. They want to hold their "Thank You's" to themselves and never let it go.
      Rich people are not so. Wise people are not so.
        I am very liberal with my "Thank You's". Even if I am giving you money I tell you 'Thank You' as soon as you stretch out your hand to receive it. Often times I end up being the one to say 'Thank You' first. Sometimes, I end up being the only one to say 'Thank You'. Unfortunately, they don't know that it's because of habits like that that made me the richer one.
       I tell Cab Drivers, Shop Attendants, & Others 'Thank You' even when I give them money.
       NO! It is not crazy. It is wise. It is sophisticated. It is the way of the Rich. It is the way of a Gentleman (or a Lady).
       Do the same thing. Be quick to say 'Thank You' over every little thing. It's more blessed and attracts more blessings to give away "Thank You's" & "Smiles" at every opportunity that comes your way than to keep your "Thank You's" to yourself like giving it out is cutting and giving out a pound of your own flesh that is close to your heart.

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 …
