Doors & Doors


From sin from shame we must repent

Show love to all we meet

Destroying walls of discontent

Washing our neighbour’s feet


For this; we first must close the door

To where we once were lost

Locking, bolting forever more

Regardless of the cost


Barring the doors to doubt and fear

Binding the devil’s hand

Enables hope to reappear

Faithful again to stand


Close all access to self’s increase

Demonic realms of lust

Allow true grace true love’s release

To raise us from the dust


Lay wide the door to Christ God’s Son

The Lamb who once was slain

Paving The Way through victories won

To rise in truth to reign


Open doors wide to praise and prayer

To serve to care to feed

To aiding people everywhere

Planting love’s righteous seed


Open man doors to truth and facts

To Heaven’s radiant light

To guide helping through selfless acts

Others to gain true sight


Let’s open doors far and near

Share others living Bread

Tell the world grace remains here

To raise the walking dead……..

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.
