Have You Eternity in Mind?.....

Have You Eternity in Mind


Have you! Eternity in mind?

Have you a future view?

Who is in charge of all mankind?

Who is lord, over you?


To all the rich, all the poor

Regardless great or small

One thing is plain, one thing sure

Somehow! Death will call


Be not a fool, live not in vain

Did life! Just came to be?

Seek wisdom friend, let knowledge reign



Think of your Maker, Power, Divine

Take a bible to hand

Eat it, drink it, search for a sign

Who! Could all this have planned?


Could chance become a CREATOR?

From nought,  cause life to be?

To nothing! Who’d be Curator?

If no one, nothing, would see


But you are here! So am I

This truth is all too plain

Life’s facts God’s  living Book will show

Dead souls will live again


To rise! Enter one of two doors

To endless joy, or pain

Which will be mine, which will be yours

Where will You! Live again?


In hell or Heaven, is your choice

This is what life’s about

Bow now to Jesus, raise your voice

Or burn with ALL who doubt…..

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.
