Dear Child.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Stand firm until the end dear child

However great the storm

I too when young went running wild

A cut above the norm


Not because of strength or size

Nor silver, gold nor jewel

But seeing Satan through these eyes

And thinking him no fool


Nor do I see him, someone’s clown

Not second-rate or frail

But once an angel of renown

Fallen and doomed to fail


As awesome as the devil stands

More cunning than a snake

Through He who rose with nail-pierced hands

My crown he cannot take


You too dear child be strong of nerve

Be wily as can be

Trust in The One we love and serve

To keep you strong and free


Why worry what the foe can do

Regardless of his might

Have faith in The One who made you

And fight your daily fight


In Jesus Christ, you cannot lose

Nor can we fail to win

For Heavens Lamb Has paid our dues

And set us free from sin


Walk strong sweet child stand firm and true

To hand take shield and sword

Trust in God to carry you through

With Jesus Christ our Lord.....

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.
