Our Unseen Goal


Which fact will welcome self to die?

What truth one’s shame confess

Who can elevate souls on high?

Beyond this world of stress


Infantile minds must first believe

All power’s from above

Willing all else behind to leave

To flood the world with love


The Truth, learning by grace to see

Feeling love’s upward draw

Until through love spiritual free

They’ll seek the evermore


Heaven’s magnetic force on high

Life’s cord life’s guiding Light

Revealing selfish flesh must die

To gain life’s robe of white


One’s life will change through righteousness

Through selfless love and care

So each in turn will others bless

With what God gives to share


It’s in The Blood, in life’s new genes

Desire to plant and grow

So when it comes and intervenes

The seed of love we sow


Because of this which grows inside

So rich so strong so true

We seek beyond the great divide

The source of Heaven’s Dew


We seek new depths and higher heights

With fervent heart and soul

Through storms through woes through gruelling fights

Toward our unseen goal.....

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.
