Bear It Some Thought


There’s a waiting list for Heaven

But a scoreboard for hell

There’s danger’s twenty four seven

So many fools know well


Our Father knows who’ll make it

He knows us all by name

Best beware who’d try and fake it

Your end is not in shame


Best not live and die a liar

Or end condemned of lust

Bend your knee God’s grace enquire

Watch your shame turn to dust


Sill fools will say there’s no God there

The devil’s just a lie

That hell on earth is everywhere

Heaven is when we die


But who of us would gamble now?

Who’s fool enough to wait?

When knees to Christ need only bow

To close hell’s gaping gate


The Father’s love is rich and true

Satan’s as fake as he

The option’s left to me and you

For which we’ll settle free


Consider too hell’s many ways

Consider Heaven’s One

When finally this world decays

Eternity’s begun


Consider now if hell is real

If God and Heaven’s true

If I have life’s eternal Seal

What future’s left for you…..?.....

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.
