Say Something


If God would use a testing sieve

Auditioning for life

Do you believe you’ll rise to live?

Beyond hell’s pit and strife


If silver, rest; for you could buy

Or gold, reserve life’s share

Must God sit back and watch you die?

Without a single prayer


If grace a challenge should convene

An honourable event

Would you take part with Heaven’s queen?

Or must you first repent?


If wisdom, could secure your place

Knowledge, a pass divine

Would you survive to see God’s face?

Or drown yourself in wine?


If church, could give security

Render life’s offered vow

Would you receive a guarantee?

Or would your head still bow?


If saying “No” still doomed to die

From self, you must abstain

On God alone henceforth rely

Through Christ when born again


Nothing upon this world of ours

Today or evermore

No sinner, saint, demonic powers

Can open Heaven’s Door


When knowing this, my friend today

Knowing what’s up above

Could there be words or anyway

For God to show more 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.
