Don’t Deceive Thyself

“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”
Galatians 6,3
Jah didn’t
create us
because in need
we just
futile servants
we die as live
the river
we beat
but we don’t move
a wata
it just seems
wise and mad
pawn and queen
clean and unclean
shall fall
the same pit
He brings
against each
in comparison
with Him
we leach
from vanity
of image
and speech
of several inches
shall flatten
our ego
in pieces
what can I esteem
when I am from
His casual
and ignore
the destination
I reach
so many
historical sins
should teach
and silence
unto me
more than
of Rasses
and hymns
the most
in universe
is unseen
inna small box
of awareness
we are placed in
coming here
the elder
who thinks
to have the solution
and nothing indeed
“orthodox” preachers
fighting the Divinity
of Selassie I King
gurus, selling
their plastic
on tv
with fat arrogance
they will receive
even the strongest
one day
must be weak.

Cannot Overthrow I&I

“Gamaliel, one learned in the law, warns Israel of their attitude to the apostles and their teaching. ‘Refrain from these men,’ he says, ‘and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it.’ And so we see today the Bible with its wonderful message reaching the remotest parts of the earth.” #QHS

Who Am I
to disturb that belief
which johannes guy
blind and stiff
could win my pride
even the priest
of jewish remind
won’t cope with
something so wide
they never seen
Jah say the time
is now and here
I’ve read the sign
they have reached
remotest sides
with Gospel script
modern lines
woudn’t admit
ignorant crime
in global lit
literary shine
education the key
Gideon shrines
will open quick
master is time
history picks
by judgment tides
those who resist
with bias to inquire
they still insist
to lead the fight
I faith persists
in this
eternal fire.

Learn and Teach

“It is not enough for the children of Ethiopia to be recipients of education. They should never forget that the responsibility for passing on this knowledge to others and of handing it over to the next generation rests on them.”
(Selected Speeches p.8 )
“Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
(Deuteronomy 11, 18-19)
Don#’t be wise
with yourself only
share the light
if you have something
to do it right
for your brethren
how much might
received in schooling
now should write
return the service
teach your eye
reciprocate it
with another guy
kingdom in shaping
especially the child
youths need aiding
heritage to refine
a quality of races.
