Love Others to Live


When wisdom reigns we’ll live to live

Freely our love will flow

Our hearts and souls to God we’ll give

Who’ll conquer every foe


When love’s our aim, target and goal

When Christ’s our prime desire

We’ll change our life we’ll save our soul

From hell’s undying fire


Its time to rise its time to wake

Its time true love to show

Its times its banks to finally break

Throughout the world to flow


True love will bring its own reward

True love brings joy and peace

True love towards The living Lord

Brings love that will not cease


Love is the heart of righteousness

The power of one accord

The act of selfless consciousness

That man can spread abroad


Desired prize, man’s ultimate dream

The state of perfect grace

Life’s living fruit and sweetest cream

Where darkness finds no place


No greater gift no greater wealth

No greater yearned for source

Life’s oil life’s balm life’s way to health

Life’s motivation force


Let’s motivate our inner man   

All those we meet inspire

Let love fulfil The Father’s plan

To set the world on fire.....

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.
