Venom of Unforgiveness


Does in your heart forgiveness reign?

For all you’ve seen or heard

Or do you live your life in vain

According to God’s Word


Are you living deaf, walking blind?

Does hatred own your heart?

Do devils occupy your mind?

And caused your peace to part


For such; hell’s day is dawning

Forever there you’ll burn

Unless you take God’s warning

Salvation’s Way to learn


To live The Way of Jesus Christ

The path of grace and love

To learn God Son was sacrificed

For one to live above


Jesus forgave you everything

Suffering on the tree

So you; forgiveness now can sing

And set completely free


There’s no one bound but you my friend

When hate is on the throne

Till unforgiveness comes to end

And love removes death’s stone


The bible tells us often times

Afford no neighbour strife

It’s hard to find more selfish crimes

That harms one’s personal life


Vengeance is mine says Heaven’s King

Let love become your guide

Let malice swiftly take to wing

So mercy can reside....

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.
