Catastrophe Goodbye.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


 As the world revolves in fear

Sickened with lying cheats

With drugs liquor and beer

The youth rampage the streets

 

There’re wars are raging everywhere

Much pestilence runs wild

Though but a  few seek God in prayer

While many seem beguiled

 

Catastrophic is the weather

World banks are crashing too

Man and nature fail together

While fools do what fools do

 

Even our children run amok

With hatchet knife and gun

When will our governments take stock?

And see what can be done

 

Even then! Will nothing arise?

How far how deep they seek

Not until the foolish grow wise

And the arrogant meek

 

First then, perhaps their knees will bend!

The proud will bow in prayer

Deceivers may cease to pretend

And covetous sharing learn

 

Then blinded eyes will open wide

The deaf lend an ear

The proud, cast off their foolish pride

And learn God’s name to fear

 

They’ll know The Truth and see their sin

See love nailed to the tree

Then will salvation dawn within

And set more children free.....

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.
