Fools Deny

Fools Deny


A fool denies Heaven on high

Denies that’s Christ’s alive

No God would send His Son to die

So that His slayers thrive


A fool believes but what he sees

What’s heard, to touch or smell

Seeking the things his lusts to please

His senses lead to hell


Always he thinks he’s walking right

His ways are far from wrong

Hoarding the stuff that bring delight

Singing the devil’s song


Dancing to Satan’s tune of choice

In orgies, drunk with glee

Heeding his master’s evil voice

Failing The Truth to see


So deceived by his wayward thoughts

Blind to Jesus’ love

He’s deaf to Heaven’s true reports

Showing The Way above


Though selfish is the heart of man

If to himself he’s true

He’ll see God’s love His graceful plan

Ordained for life anew


We’ll see how far we’ve gone astray

Our hearts will understand

Ceasing to walk one’s selfish way

We’ll see The Truth first hand


We’ll put the devil horde to flight

Well seek The Father’s will

With Jesus as our guiding light

We’ll climb God’s Holy Hill.....

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.
