Life's That Simple


Can anybody here me?

Is anybody there?

Is God alive and can He see?

The burdens people bear


I know I’ve practiced evil things

Others have done much worse

How come they’ll rise on angel wings?

Whilst I remain here cursed


So is it fair that I should fail?

That I in shame must die

Whilst others say Christ paid their bail

And promised life on high


If Heaven’s real and You are true

If Christ’s alive and well

I pray Lord God You save me too

And lift my soul from hell


Forgive I pray my wayward past

Let Heaven’s grace be mine

Grant peace, joy and please not last

Grant life through Christ divine


Can’t I receive forgiveness too?

Can I not mend my ways?

Can’t I with Jesus’ chosen few?

Obtain eternal grace?


For me You’ve made it simple Lord

I’ve read Your Book to see

By faith I’m free from death and sword

For all eternity


My prayer is yet for others now

For sinners as was I

That they by faith their knees Christ bow

And rise to life on high…..

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.
