for grandpa

for grandpa

A Poem by Eshe' Allen
"

people suck...

"

worked and toiled

in firm belief

conviction
truth

signs and wonders
accompanied and
followed
 

blesséd
sincerely
and correspondingly

cursed
  
his greatest gift
weakness
while universally abused
singularly understood by
 
she
honey
sweet
 

companion and
partner
in the journey
mission confirmed
in cancer's
defeated leap
 

to love
 

long, deep
eternal
enduring
with all
through all
of all
 

the message he preached
modeled
lived
for the 
unlovéd
  
and when it was time for their
reward
to stand with those there from the beginning and
rejoice
   

them sorry negroes
took that from them

too
and for what
some small person's ego?
  

giant among ants
and the ants can't understand
what he's saying

Poem is excellent. We need to remember the people who lived before us. To understand their pain and good times. You wrote a outstanding poem. Need more people to describe the knowledge of the good folks who raised and help them.
