The Healing Way


You’re in the dark and live a lie

Struggling to endure

Seeking answers to how where why

Of death’s eternal cure


Faith’s barriers are everywhere

Your hope for life grows thin

You ask, yet no one seems to care

Whilst slave to wayward sin


You’ve heard the devil’s out to kill

That Jesus rose on high

Doctors advise you take a pill

Still you fear to die!


You’ve found medicine clouds the mind

Religion points to blame

Staggering lost you’re walking blind

Living your life of shame


Yet faithful is The Ancient One

The Truth on Heaven’s throne

The living Christ God’s Lamb &Son

Who rolls away death’s stone


Jesus is life He’s Heaven’s Way

Incarnate Bread & Wine

Our constant hope our faithful stay

Our living God divine


We need The Truth to see first hand

We need true faith to grow

In spirit one must understand

Salvation’s awesome flow


It’s Christ we need for sweet remorse

Atonement for the soul

God’s Word God’s Will God’s righteous course

And Heaven as only 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.
