Message To Some Who Have Gone Ahead Of Me
(Please, don’t take the poem so heavy and don’t misinterpret that I blame and am mad to the world. I just tried to use a different vocabulary. I do not speak of negative things here but I speak of hope and I try to convince everyone to make a stand and change the present world. Thank you very much)
When did the gorgeous world I knew become like this?
Once I thought these things would never ever happen
But when I grew and matured, I proved myself wrong.
For when I was very young and so innocent
I just wanted to add the amount of my toys
But now, I blame you because you forgot your God.
You possessed greatness but you forgot your Master
And you left my generation so discouraged.
You may look at me sometimes as a foolish youth
Just because I have faith in God and I share it.
But sirs and madams you are wrong… you are so wrong.
Unquestionably, it is God who raised me up.
I tell these things not because someone ordered me.
Instead, I tell these things from my own experience.
It is God who made me saw the need of today.
Then by God’s grace and help that need, will soon be met.
So sir and ma’am will you help my generation?
Stop blaming and cursing God but let’s do OUR part.
