Are You the One

 

I’m here I’m there at odds again

My pillow soaked in tears

Afraid my life I’ll live in vain

Through many misspent years

 

“Are You The God who’s full of love?

Who’s merciful and true?

Who’s calling sinners high above

To live through birth anew!

 

Are You The King who reigns supreme?

Of whom the stories tell

The Answer to my every dream

The Way from death and hell

 

Have You such power as they say?

Is death at Your command?

Can life be just a prayer away?

Is all within Your hand?

 

Will You allow my eyes to see?

My ears The Truth to hear

That I may live may walk now free

Without these chains of fear

 

Have You such love, amazing grace?   

My past You would forgive

So even I may see Your face

And through Your Son may live

 

I’m calling loud I’m crying now

In faith in hope and trust

I’m praying as I humbly bow

To raise me from the dust

 

Into Your hands I pledge my soul

Through Christ I make my plea

Please help and guide me to my goal

And give me victory”…..

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.
