Not Myth, Nor Fairytale


Prepare to meet your God today

Exist no longer dumb

Your life tonight may fade away

And morning may not come


God paved The Way to set us free

To heal and make us whole

Choosing to die upon a tree

To save our shameful soul


God’s Word is fact Christ’s death was real

His resurrection true

Upon life’s page He’s set His seal

As pledge to life anew


Through grace by faith we may receive

Through selfless love divine

Salvation comes when we believe

Portrayed through bread and wine


Before too late before that dawn

Before our time is past

Through Jesus’ blood again be born

So says The First & Last


Obey The Lord His every rule

Love Him with heart and soul

There’s no more time to play the fool

If life would be your goal


This is no myth no fairy tale

Nor hoax someone would play

But from our eyes should fall the veil

That we be saved today


Accept the facts, the bible’s true

It’s light unto our feet

Authored by God for all to view

To make His joy complete.....

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.
