Be Not Fooled


Who’d play the fool on Zion Hill?

Who’d hear yet fail to learn?

Who’d come to God their cup to fill?

For nothing in return


God wants we change our lives through Christ

To love, graceful forgive

Our very self be sacrificed

In order that we live


We need to care, with others share

Help others facts to see

Reveal God’s Spirit’s everywhere

Will set the captive free


Of Satan’s hold, his wily ties

Satanic doubt and fear

The devil’s snares demonic lies

No God was ever here


But fools will laugh, continue sin

Scoffers will mock in scorn

Without God’s Holy Ghost within

Without liberty’s dawn


Countless wander like sheep astray

Hesitant, lost and cold

Ignorant to The Shepherd’s Way

Blind to salvation’s fold


But God as Father wants to give

With peace amazing love

As Christ He died that man may live

Eternally above


Let’s play no more the devil’s fool

Open our blinded eyes

Allow The living Christ to rule

And in His hand arise......

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.
