Food For Thought


Most of the religious scholars throughout time agree
Prophet Jesus Christ's death is a mystery.
Yet, most Christians (who purport to love him most ) 
Prefer to believe that he died for their sins at age 33, 
Even though  he faced death on the cross, unwillingly. 

Why would God deny His divine servant's prayers,
So He could  grant filthy sinners theirs?
Would Jesus' words and his works be less profound
If he escaped the cross and taught even more
before  being Heaven bound?

God sends prophets with words of wisdom and warning
against sin.
Their lives are examples that keep us from harming
our own souls, 
So by not falling victim to Satan's seduction
we can win,
Only, then, do we attain life's Ultimate Goal.

Would Christians make our divine Prophet Jesus a mere enabler
who God only sent to condone their sinful behaviors?

THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM (From "I, Too, Can Create Light)"

bow in my piety at the death of the mighty King of the Black Masses who held holy check on violence when recompense trained my trek.
But somehow my mourning is misshapen, Maligned with bitterness and second guess For all of mankind that would block the path of righteousness 
With bloody stop signs, that would snuff out The last candle when somehow it seemed that It lit our King's Highway to an Impossible Dream. (April 4th 1968) From now on Black History Month shall begin with Dr. King's Birthday and extend to the end of February. Black Power!
