born in chains I could not see,
heart was pure and mind still free,
but as the time had passed me by,
I noticed love and peace say bye…

I read; without a shadow of a doubt,
I wrote; beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Life was cruel and life was cold,
Words were calm and words were bold.

I fell in love with constant pain,
that left my heart and soul in vain.

I became humbled each time I read,
and immortal each time I wrote,
I became modest in times of growth,
and I shall not die although being dead.

For my words would live forever,
and my stories they’ll endeavor.
These young folk who’ll come along,
who found a place where they belong.

In times of hate and sorrow, guilt…
my poetry would be their guide,
that’s why I love this poetry inside,
coming out this heart and soul rebuilt.

I wrote poetry to save those mourning,
so they’d fine love in life each morning.

A man told me how he and his friends who made fun of a pastor who spoke about faith; he quickly changed his topic to 'Hope' and it was like he managed to get their attention. Everything became silent and they started to really listen. When the pastor had finished the bible lesson. He walked up to them, and spoke with such a love that they started weeping.Soon that very same boy spoke to me as a pastor, about life .But I didn't care how important it was, I didn't truly understand the power of words. I lacked to understand but felt his passion. Everything he said, felt personally meant for me. I could not stop myself from listening.I was not a mistake, and later realized that there were people who cared. It only took one man to make me realize I was searching for hope in all the wrong places. I was fully convinced that my purpose was to do what he did. But he surprised me once again.At that last moment, he stared directly into my soul and said, "Don't ever try to be like me or any other human on this earth. You'll only find disappointment. I'm just a man. We all have a purpose and along the way you'll be judged by the world. But never stop!" "Free yourself by opening your heart and mind to the truth. That when you speak, always be happy."
