Life's Long Squabbles
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Free in the future, free of your past

Free of hell and the beast

Would you be sad as Heaven’s last?

Believing you’re the least?


Humility should have its place

Wisdom should raise its head

Necessity will seek God’s face

This side of being dead


Be glad, well pleased on Heaven’s Path

When Jesus hand holds yours

Quitting, leaving, eternal wrath

Facing Life’s pearly doors


Yet where in life are you now?

Is Jesus, Life’s Way in sight?

Have you thought at the Feet to bow?

Of Life’s eternal Light


Jesus is waiting, longing for you

Watching each loathsome fall

Frowning, at shame you chose to do

Smiling, when Love walked tall


Knowing your soul, seeing your heart

Erring, straying, when blind

Until Salvation played it’s part

When Truth you sought to find


Angels of Heaven, demons of hell

Squabbled both night and day

Times when succeeding , when shameful you fell

Times, when kneeling to pray


My Father’s pleased, you’ve stood the test

Delighted in your rise

Welcome to Life’s eternal rest

Welcome to Paradise…..

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.
