I Gave by Leon Pryce


I gave away my food

To feed the poor

I gave up my home

To shelter the homeless

I gave up my job

For the unemployed

I gave my money to the poor


But after all I gave

My giving was not enough

Because you have not

Been satisfied


I gave up my life, so you may live

I gave my eyes, so you may see

I gave my heart

Full of love and compassion


But after all I gave

My giving was not enough

Because you have not

Been satisfied


I gave you Christ

And you crucified him

I gave you the devil

And you worshipped him

I gave you paradise

But it wasn`t perfect enough

You wanted the world

And I gave you the universe


But after all I have given

You could not be satisfied

So I will give no more

And leave you to be filled

By your own self, shame

Greed and pride

About the Author

Leon Pryce is from the streets of Montego Bay to the world comes a writer who is not afraid to express himself and let you know how he is feeling. Leon Pryce self-published his first poetry book titled Broken Wings as an experiment which turned out to be an astonishing success for a first timer because it out-sold his expectations. That experience has motivated him to wholeheartedly dedicate himself to another book project; a collection which will formally introduce him to the world as a poet with potential and power. A voice which cannot be suppressed, but will echo through the years to come. Immortalized Through Poetry encapsulates the personality of Leon Pryce and will give you the keys to unlocking this eccentric soul. He takes pleasure in offering you the parts of him which he is not ashamed of; that humble, innocent and modest youth who grew up in a small rural community in Jamaica.
