Who Would Have Thought? Poem by Tracee Olga

Who Would Have Thought?

That as I walked towards you smiling, eager to see you, in your minds you planned evil
That as you sold me as a slave, a great life awaited me
That being in prison for a crime I didn’t commit would be the best thing that ever happened to me
That a severe famine would reunite me with my family
That my dreams would actually come to pass
That your hatred and jealousy would turn to love and respect
That my family will be respected in a foreign land
That the young boy hid in a basket would lead an entire nation
That a stammerer will be used to convince a mighty to king to release his slaves
That a simple shepherd boy would kill a giant
That killing a giant was not all he could do, he later become a great king
Being a murderer and adulterer, a simple sorry made him Gods favorite
That a simple request would make him the wisest man ever to live
That a king of kings would be born in his linage
That this same king born under humble circumstances would die for EVERYONE sins
That though he was despite and rejected, he would sit at the right hand of GOD himself!
Who would have really thought! !

Adapted from the bible story of Joseph, Moses, David and Jesus.
