Love Is the Way

Love Is the  Way


Why can’t the world find Heaven’s Way?

Why can’t she flee her fate?

Why do her children err and stray?

Living a life of hate


The bible tells the reason plain

God’s word’s crystal clear

She’ll witness death suffering pain

Refusing God to fear


God! Maker of Heaven and earth

God; of eternal light

God; who brought this world to birth

And gives her children sight


But many choose the darkness still

Walking the devil’s path

Exercising their selfish will

Towards the coming wrath


While few can see beyond the veil

To Truth no longer blind

But still they’ll falter fall and fail

If hate controls their mind


Love is The Way, life’s righteous course

Uplifting, healing, sweet

Truly indescribable force

God’s Lamb revealed complete


Through love, the facts are easily found

Through love The Way’s revealed

Through love one’s soul is Heaven bound

When to its rule we yield


This is The Way for man to live

For death to meet its end

To seek to find receive and give

When Jesus calls us friend.....

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.
