Mickel Holder

He went to my church and also school
He had earrings in his ears and a gold tooth, which looked cool
He’s older than me
And in a higher form at school
Now I don’t know much about him
But I know he was a trouble maker,
Smart kid and a class clown
When he came to the church,
He was a miserable child
When he left the church,
He left as God’s child
I couldn’t believe it when they told us he had died
I didn’t want to believe it; I thought it was too soon and that they had lied
It wasn’t too long when I saw him
I guess God was jus ready for him
They said he got ill
Just before school started
Well that’s all I know
God was ready for him to go
This poem I dedicate to my schoolmate Mickel
I give my condolences to all his family and friends


M for his mighty big mouth
I for his intelligence
C for his coaxing skills
K for his King Kong strength
E for his sweet eyes sometimes covered by sunglasses
L for his loving nature and lovely smile
