Two Gates to Eternity

Two Gates to Eternity


Who turn their backs to He who lives

Exist in deep despair

Refusing wisdom He but gives

To die with no one there


No one to hear us when we pray

No one to show us grace

No one to stand on judgment day

Pleading to God our case


How foolish must a person be?

How ignorant or blind?

The truth from God they’ll fail to see

Without a change of mind


Creation to the eye is plain

God’s handwork’s clear in view

Was Jesus’ death for us in vain?

What more has God to do?


For many reasons man has died

Since God created earth

But lacking living seed inside

Life’s soil brings nought to birth


There must be something else to gain

Before our lives deplete

That when God sends from Heaven rain

We’ll grow as golden wheat


The harvesters draw ever nigh

The fields are white as snow

What happens if today you die?

Where has your soul to go?


With Satan burn, with Christ to reign

Death opens wide two gates

Its Heaven or hell, joy or pain

Eternity awaits.....

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.
