I Heard You Sing - Poem by Frank Okoth

Yesterday I saw you
As you sang Halleluiah
Halleluiah praising the most high
For the good he has done for you

Today you are at the optimum of your voice
Lamenting, blaming God for your misfortunes
Instead of reflecting upon your present blessings
Of which you possess in plenty

Tomorrow is eagerly awaited
Anticipated for, to see the
Turn of events after the day dawns
Until the sun rests in the evening
When you cry, shed tears, wail
For your loved one is late
Will you drink poison?

Forever is still unclear
Shall halleluiah! Halleluiah! still be heard?
Will you firm and faith yourself when disaster
and temptations call?
Make me not your scapegoat
Your sacrificial lamb!
