Has Nothing Changed


Some know His name still live in shame

Blundering through the night

We Know His name and through His Flame

We’re walking in The Light


God gives His Shepherds sheep to keep

To feed along The Way

But like Bo Peep who lost her sheep

Theirs too are found to stray


We say that smoking is a sin

Whisky beer and wine

So fail a precious soul to win

God’s Truth would swift refine


We sit in church till sleek and fat

We think we fall not short

We sieve a gnat but not a rat

Like those of whom Christ taught


We need The Truth of God to preach

Inform a troubled mind 

Live The Way that we may reach

Those weary lost and blind


We’ve bibles from a by gone age

In language all but gone

Interpreting most every page

That victory may be won


We need the young the old and grey

God’s few to multiply

Through foolishness, they stay away

Still lost in sin to die


We’ve many things to answer for

Though good intentions reign

We need to love them through the door

Ere Jesus comes again…..

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.
