If Hell Opens Now.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


What in life are you hoping for?

What would be best for you?

If Hell, in fact, opens the door

What on earth could you do?

 

Is now! not the time, to ponder?

Consider, what to do?

Before! The eternal yonder

Awaiting me and you?

 

I’m thinking here, thinking now!

If God is truly real

If now I pray, to Jesus,8 bow

He’ll know the way I feel?

 

Did Jesus truly die for me?

He’ll still know me today?

Could, would He truly keep me free

As Christians churches say

 

Would God in Heaven keep me free?

Behold me as a son?

To Heaven’s Door grant me The Key

After the filth, I’ve done?

 

Nothing on earth will hold me still

No devil will restrain

Fail wholehearted to keep the Will

Who gives one birth again

 

Fool no longer, outlaw, no more

Complete and always true

Knowing Your Word, Love’s steadfast Law

My life belongs to You

 

Though once declared for Hell’s fire

No moment without pain

My future is Your desire

Until Life’s last refrain…..

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.
