For causing eye and eye to see

For causing strife to cease

Sons of God one’s name will be

Because we value peace


God’s blessings flow where peace is made

Where love goes hand in hand

One’s robe of Light will never fade

Within The Promised Land


But woe to those who dispute bring

Who close to peace their door

Life’s victory song they’ll fail to sing

When time becomes no more


The tongue can cause tremendous hurt

Can cause a soul much pain

When evil ways we don’t convert

We live our lives in vain


Gossips; can cause ferocious war

Their tongues are never still

The venom from their mouths they pour

Can often lead to kill


Yet when true peace we serve in love

When harmony guides one’s heart

The sweet reward promised above

Will come and never part


From Satan’s ways we must repent

Be rid of spot and stain

Where peace is truly life’s intent

God’s grace and love will reign


For where love’s seed is seen to grow

Where peace is prime concern

God’s compassion will duly show

At Jesus Christ’s return.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
