A HEARTS TREASURE

Ezekiel M. Bey
In Memory Of Hugh Porter

As I think back and remember
Memories of happy times
When we laughed, joked, and played
It's so clear in my mind.

You always were there
At a time when I had no friends
You proved time over time
That you would be there to the end.

When I went through problems
Your doors were never closed
You respected what I stood for
Even when I was wrong

You had guide me by correction
With a gentle helping hand
I don't think you had realized
That I, was your #1 fan.

Some didn't see your heart
Like I have always seen
The goodness and Kindness
Your compassionate deeds

But then came a time
When the Sun turned to Moon
And I took life for granted
You would leave much too soon

So all I have now
Are memories of you
Didn't get to say, "I Love You"
And I pray you always knew

So as you transcend
In that great eternal life
You will always be my hearts treasure
An infinite Beacon Light.

 

WHY DID YOU KNOCK

By Ezekiel M. Bey
 

I once requested to enter in
A place unknown a place within
I had a guide, cause I was blind
I could not see what was inside

Instructions given to knock three times
So I obeyed, and did it thrice
Before I knew a sound was made
A door flew open, admission gained

Escorted in, conductors path
To different places I could not grasp
Three times they asked, was it my choice
I said, "it is", in nervous voice

Once this had ended, I came again
Once more to enter a second day
After it all, I was requested
To come once more, complete the lesson

On my third time, I did not know
That I must die a death untold
But to explain what happen then
It was a miracle I rose again.

The mysteries, of arts, of Mind
Philosophies that prove divine
To seek and learn the lessons told
Improve yourself, a voice had echoed

It came so clear, why I had asked
To enter in, the door of paths
Subconscious thoughts an endless clock
In all I realized, why I had knocked

 

NO MATTER WHAT CONTINUE BROTHER

By Ezekiel M.Bey

I see your heart when no one cares
Beyond the surface in your despair
You struggle hard to show your good
And all you ask, to be understood

You love to teach, what you have learned
To share you knowledge and you concerns
No body listens to your desire
 

Misunderstood of inner fire

The disappointment that you confront
An Angered rage because want
To just express your inner soul
But heart and spirit must rise and glow

Above your passions where you must rise
And you will find a clear blue sky
So rise above, you'll see the glare
You'll also find that I'll be there

Don't ever think you walk alone
For I'm your Brother in every fold
Just trust in God, Our Graceful Father
No Matter what, "Continue Brother"!!!
