Life Passing By
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Life's passing by,  more swift than thought

Like a blink of an eye

No moment can ever be bought

God but knows when we die


But is earth's death, truly man's end?

If death means truly to die

For what cause did Jesus transcend?

Why is Heaven on high?


Why otherwise would life now be?

What would God's promise mean?

Why salvation, why God's decree?

Why did Christ intervene?


For everything, God has a reason

Why Heaven and earth was made?

If just only for a season

Why should man live to fade?


Life! on earth, is a testing ground

Assessment, a proving trial

A pronouncement to be found

Truth to smile or revile


Truth's knowledge is worth while seeking

More than searching for gold

More than Life's bible just peeking

Where wisdom, one can unfold  


One needs to dig, one needs to learn

To walk, to live, to love

Living, righteousness, to discern

Through God's Spirit guiding above


Life's truly not passing all by

Beyond both time and space

God's children, will never die

But see God, face to face.....

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.
