Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

I Said

I said there is a voice in the thunder
God has echoed His statement to angel heart
I said there is life within the wind
Their duties is to patrol the earth
I said these entities were family
Some buried some still alive
I said they are our guardians and kin
The elders who governs our lives
I said there is a call out for battle
An innocent man has been killed under right
I said not many answered its cry
Got to go to work, make money or nice
I said its aim is for righteousness
The division of heaven and hell
I said its worth is not for us to die
To be the truth of God words
I said my praise unto the heavens
I said my fallen defeats
I said its time to be silent
I said nothing
Then, I winked

Poem of the Day

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
