Poem: Like Joseph…


Like Joseph, I have been sold to slavery Untitled (11)

Sent away from my kindred

With words and with actions

I have been falsely accused by my help

And have tabled my tale to two and more

I have sat with kindness and have eaten with joy

For my help once, has given me a share

And from the part given, I have shared

None has said oh Joseph, wicked servant

But now like a thief they have cast me to the prison

Oh that God will see

For he sees and has sent me a helper

But then my helper has forgotten

They have forgotten my name

My number

My state

Even when I asked

Asked for help

But oh that God will see

For here again, I sit with kindness

But what joy it could be

If I but see with my eyes,

The dream God has given me

See it as man

See it as life

That I see when I wake

But oh that God will see

For when my day came

My time has come

His seeing eyes

Sought me out

From prison to palace
