It Was For Me By L Milton Hankins

By L MILTON HANKINS

I stood at the foot of Calvary
My head bowed low in shame
I thought of the hate and mockery
And I knew I was to blame.

I saw the fear and misery
Upon the furrowed brow
I heard the wails of agony
I felt the cold wind howl.

The vacant stares of anguished kin
The eyes now red and dry
I knew it was for sinful men
That Jesus had to die.

I was sinful, weary–lost,
Did no one care for me?
No one but the lonely Jesus
Hanging on the tree.

I stood at the foot of Calvary
My head bowed low in shame
I thought of the hate and mockery
And I knew I was to blame

Title : “Land of the free Liberia” By Isiaka A. Kromah
Poem : Land of the Free


Oh! Thou sweet land of the free, ????

You paved the way so others could find their ways

Where men of letter fought for a better day,

And find solutions without delay.

Oh! The first daughter of Africa ????

Your children lied in a chronic state,

as certain ‘negatives’ have long assumed the
roles of ‘positives’ in their internal system,

And the govern has become ungovernable.


Oh! Belove mama Liberia ????

Your children are ruled by People who only let their bias egos and emotion speak for them.

People who cannot address their fellow people without reading it from the papers!

Every word they say is what their hearts never possessed nor desire.

 

Oh! The first star of the white man’s grave????

Agony has become the crying concern of your children,

Crying for liberation in the hands of the oppressor

Their cruel wicked hands have turned our situation into a desperate one


Oh! Mama, you children can’t bear it any longer????

They are now surviving instead of living,

Should they die hoping for better days,

Or keep surviving the horrible ways
