Observe, Consider

Observe, Consider


The worldly man’s aloof and proud

Haughty with selfish will

For growth he’ll please the maddening crowd

For gain he’ll cheat and kill


Considering where one’s wealth remains

Consider world decay

Observe creation bound in chains

Confused in disarray


Of worldly reason give no care

Regard their thoughts with scorn

Prattle from books a fool would share

Will fail The Morrow’s dawn


The dawn where sleeping souls awake

Ending man’s selfish dream

Where countless face hell’s flaming lake

Where torment reigns supreme


Of this; regard with all your might

The Truth of Christ The Lord

God’s living Son The Morning Light

Tomorrow’s great Reward


Regard Him now regard Him well

Consider night and day

Where world and fake will end in hell

But standing true we’ll stay


We’ll stay as kings in perfect peace

With Christ our Lord and friend

Where love and joy will never cease

And life will see no end


Regard Jesus life’s Cornerstone

One’s mansion high above

Consider not as flesh and bone

But beings born to love.....

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.
