Grown 2 Love Books (Unreleased Song) - by Alfred

Verse One:
Hello all, the name is Alfred Benjamin King/
I was born to win, & I represent the King/
I love reading more than doing any other thing/
I have so many books my room is a library/
I used to love music & always had a plate/
Humming to new tunes while headphones vibrate/
For a while it seemed nothing could compensate/
Until I was asked out by the world of games/
We used to chat always like everyday/
Except when sleep broke our dates/
Like a bird swipes its prey before it can run away/
But I managed to still race thru games without breaks/
The key is to save Ur game after every major break/
Before consciousness goes away without a wave/
Making you see Mario and Donkey Kong getting saved/
By Lara Croft & Leon from Resident Evil's stage/

Verse Two:
In spite of my great love for video games/
I discovered that real life ain't no game/
I felt sick that I played video games all day/
Exchanging the real world for some fantasy/
I put down the pad and picked up a book/
Now its a whole new man when U turn and look/
That don't mean I threw away my P.S Two/
It just means priorities took a whole new look/
And yelp I've always loved cartoons too/
Movies are cool too but not cool as toons/
I remember back then around '92/
Used to creep to the neighbours to watch cartoons/
Back then not everyone had cable/
I sat over there more than their central table/
It's funny how people walk in and out of your life/
I taught my B.F.F then, will be my B.F.F now/

Verse Three:
I can hardly believe that I've changed this much/
I can hardly believe I don't talk as much/
Can U believe Alfred Benjamin loves to read?/
That's a miracle for those who don't believe/
I mean without being forced I pick a book 'n' read/
My brain is now a pet that I love to feed/
At a rate most often attributed to greed/
Eating up text books, like mice eat cheese/
No cat's goin' keep me away from my meal/
Is this the feeling that gripped when they invented the wheel?/
Because I know I feel I just want to scream/
Not the kind that Pops when U watch a scary film/
But the kind that Pops when U celebrating/
Meditating on good books is liberating/
I've found a new friend in reading books/
As far as I never leave, she'll never leave too/

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 …
