Who'll Be a Fool

Who'll Be a Fool


Who’ll be a fool when Truth’s makes wise?

Who’ll set themselves aside

Believe their death will see them rise

Beyond the great divide


Who’ll see their wisdom’s not their own

Knowledge is Heaven sent

Believe a heart as cold as stone

Will melt when they repent


Who’ll accept The King of kings?

Nailed on a rugged cross

Who died that we believe these things

Regardless of the loss


Who’ll fly to rise as eagles do?

As angels high above

Who’ll die to sin to live anew?

Within the arms of love


Only when self is torn apart

Who’ll open Truth their door

Accept within their searching heart

To life their must be more!


Only the few with Heaven’s Light

With fire blazing within

Who’s faith remains through life’s long fight

They have no doubt to win


Those unafraid their lives to change

Aspire to serve for free

Allow God’s presence rearrange

In hope of victory  


They’ll die to gain an unseen prize

They’ll die for Heaven’s grace

They’ll die to rise beyond the skies

To see God’s smiling face…..

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.
