Let Ignorance Go to Hell.....

Let Ignorance Go to Hell


However rich however poor

However much we thrive

Nothing we have will endure

Nor ever more survive


Knowing the truth this simple fact

Knowing man’s future chart

Just how life’s cards are finally stacked

Let wisdom play its part


There must be something greater here

Something we fail to see

Something distant something near

That made this firm decree


Some power, control, some hidden force

Authority supreme

Some faint obscure unveiled source

Beyond our wildest dream


Because we think! Life’s fact must be

Reality’s at hand

Something, someone we cannot see

We need to understand


With eyes, ears, with functioning brain

However strangely odd

One sole conclusion can remain

There truly must be God


Lord supreme of infinite might

Of whom the ancients sing

Giver of life giver of light

Creator of everything


Let grace let love let faith rejoice

Ignorance go to hell

Let’s praise Jesus with heart and voice

And know that all is well.....

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.
