What Leads To Darkness


What makes us deaf to Christ God’s Word?

What makes our eyes so blind?

What makes us doubt when Truth we hear?

And clouds our troubled mind


The things we say the things we do

Walking through darkest night

The devil’s ways we still pursue

Devoid of Heaven’s light


We think to know what life’s about

We travel far and wide

We seek the darkest corners out

From God and truth to hide


We need to stop our foolish talk

Renounce our ways of war

Refrain to run and learn to walk

The road God lays before


God bids us turn from deeds of shame

He sees the proud walk tall

Yet disobedience is the name

Through which still counless fall


If only we could understand

Could see we have a need

We’d seek for God’s almighty hand

We’d follow Jesus’ lead


We need to open Truth the door

Let wisdom sing its song

Set course towards The Father’s shore

Revealing all that’s wrong


We all have something wrong within

We fall perfection short

We need to see our lives of sin

And trust in Christ’s report.....

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.
