Repent Foolishness

Repent Foolishness


Beware dear friends of what you seek

Shadows; threaten mankind

Danger in strength, hope for the weak

When Truth you’ve sought find


Beware lost souls of stories told

Be not the devil’s tool

Hills full silver mountains full gold

Await a once blind fool


Unless you know, unless you see

Unless you come to feel

Unless you have some guarantee

Jesus remains unreal


Wonders, miracles may seek the Jew

May quench a thirsty soul

Paths to knowledge gentiles pursue

For wisdom luring goal


Such wood such straw such bagatelle

May satisfy desire

But lead from God, to darkest hell

And pain in endless fire


Consult no star up in the sky

True futures can’t be sold

Buy wisdom from The Lord on high

And knowledge free of gold


Lift up to God each tarnished hand

Expose your shameful soul

Give Christ your heart and understand

True love can make you whole


Go spend yourself on fellow man

Demonic fields invade

Serve Christ and God’s eternal plan

Through Heaven’s grace displayed.....

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.
