The More We Know.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

In itself, what worth is knowledge?

Where thoughts begin to grow

Where hungry souls come and forage

To find the way to go


To places where but few have trod

To foreign far-off shores

To seek if truly there’s a God

And open wisdom’s doors


Where wisdom feeds an open mind

Where doubt begins to flee

The facts of life the truth we find

May help to set us free


Where eyes may see and ears hear

Where life’s True Way is found

Where wisdom leads to godly fear

The path to Hallowed Ground


The more we know the more we learn

The more we understand

The less we’ll find to cause concern

Toward The Promised Land


Nothing we’ll find will cause us loss

Nothing to cause us pain

For this Christ died upon the cross

To rise with Him to reign


The more discovered in Jesus

The more our hearts can see

The less love’s ways displease us

Toward life’s victory


To triumph, success and conquest

Turning each wayward tide

Barring us from the very best

The enemy would hide.....

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.
