Poetry At Zion City Tabernacle
Peace and Love!
Perfect peace and true love, only comes from the Almighty God above
Our Creator, who after the flood, sent down his heavenly dove.
Why can’t mankind learn to live in peace and love with one another?
Respect each other regardless of colour, race, and even if he’s not our Brother
For it’s now black on black, everyone is now under serious attack
Maybe for the sake of feeding a habit, like some cocaine, ganja or crack.
Charged up high, hallucinating or psychotic, seems like demon possession
taking over the mind, that now a fix becomes an urgent and desperate obsession.
Now telling the mind wicked thoughts, and evil acts for that person to do
Like thieving, mugging or even killing, an innocent person or bystander in view.
Resulting sadly in another victim, and another Mother losing her precious young Son
Whose life was cut short by someone, who had quickly pulled the trigger on their gun.
Gun crime and gang warfare is now escalating today, with the youth and young black Men
arrested, thrown behind bars, not knowing, when they will ever be coming back out again.
“Where are some of the absent Fathers is the question I often ask each day?”
Baby Mothers bringing up children, with no male role model at home with them to stay.
