I Was There

Poem By Nebe Albert

To a Brother a gentle voice was heard. You have taken the freedom of another and yet you walk freely among the sons. Behold the faithful witnesses of your brother.

I am justice, I was there. I was there when you took away the freedom of another and to you I will work my mischief as you did on the innocent.

I am mercy, I was there.
I was there under the heat of the sun when you crookedly looked around and thought I saw you not. I will look away when justice will lay hold on you.

I am calamity, I was there.
I was there under the shade when you did my work on another. I called you but you were in a hurry. My vexation will be upon you like a sudden rain.

I am fear, I was there.
I was there and am sure. was it not you that i saw as you ran in and out like a mad man on a madly sunny day? I gladly hugged your soul and left it not. I will show you to the world as a groom shows his bride. I will never leave you.


I am your signature, I was there.
I was there when you broke my heart and left me naked to the world, I cried to be covered of my nakedness when another saw me and had pity. I will avenge your betrayal
I was there.

Comments about I Was There

frank Ryan, I will try it. Thank you
A sterling display of passion and power through the Silent Word...If I could, might I suggest you consider breaklining this fine work to refine the stanzaic structure into shorter lines with the appropriate breaks...It's just an IMO...I think it would flow smoother, more mellifluously and give your audience a more poetic read as opposed to a prosaic read. Either way...it's impressive work, and I enjoyed the read ~FjR~

O Death

Fair and calm,
Easy and free as the wind,
Blow through the heart that understands your simple nature,

Together In Love

You fought the war of ages within seconds.thousands fell behind you and by your side.kings, queens, lords, soldiers and knights under no mans colour.Yet you won the fight and took the price.
Living in a world alone, a rare beauty grew within a space.A flower in a diamond, with a golden stand, on a silver platform.A room seen but beauty grew within.
Time tells, nine steps within a year.They dug a mine for a jade of a unique nature. Blimey! They stood, they rejoiced in two different places of the world.
Within space and time, polished and cut.The best of its kind.Sharp smooth curves and lines.

A Woman And Her Beauty.

A woman and her beauty. You never can tell what you will find in a woman. Do you not know about the womans nature? What do you think you know? A wild nature or a calm nature? Do you know a fragile being or a cat with nine lives?

A woman and her beauty.
We know of the gold and its beauty, the diamond and its beauty, the jasper and its beauty, the jade and its beauty. Never a mineral like a woman for her beauty is within.

A Feeble Soul.

Always pray for me; that i may fall into no sin.

Always be with me, thy rod and thy staff, to comfort me and guide me.

In My Heart.

In my heart, i bear a burden so strong.i come to you for rest. Father, give me rest.

In my heart, am weary and sad.who am i? A question i ponder on day and night. Save me from myself.
