Plan Ahead


 Like finless fish without a tail

Through evil said and done

I staggered round was doomed to fail

Like snowflakes in the sun


Proudly most think we know it all

From life is nought to win

Until we read through Adam’s fall

The consequence of sin


Consider God these latter days

Reflect on what’s in store

Repent of sin review your ways

This side of death’s wide jaw


Marvellous times are planned ahead

Countless things to wonder

For those as bride Christ Jesus wed

Before life’s torn asunder


No eye has seen no ear has heard

Beyond this world of plight

Treasure’s prescribed within God’s word  

For whom God’s found delight


Heaven and earth will pass away

Kingdoms will rise and fall

Yet every pledge of God will stay

For those who heed His call


No need to fear when you die

Decide through faith to stand

God’s Lamb & Son will not deny

The future Heaven planned


So much awaits God’s every child

Such wonders will we find

What fool when truly reconciled?

Would leave such hope behind......?

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.
