Who Can.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Open your eyes blind man and see

Bring muted tongues to speak

Let the impossible come to be

Through those the world finds weak


Can anyone do such things as these?

Can every pain endure?

Make the devil to bend his knees

And give to death the cure


Who can unite the meanest foes?

Cause seas and streams run dry

Who can subjugate ills and woes?

And make the strongest cry


Who beyond death will cause to rise?

To live and die no more

Cause deceivers to tell no lies

And end man’s lust for war


Who can cure the world of stress?

Comfort and save a soul

Cause the worlds’ worst sinners confess

And guide them to life’s goal


To Heaven via Paradise

Eternity full peace

Alone through one man’s sacrifice!

Cause life never to cease


Who can mend a sinful heart?

Wash stinking souls of shame

Repent, receive again to start

Life with a brand new name


How in the world, can this be done?

Who can these things achieve?

None but The Christ God’s Lamb God’s Son

For all who will believe.....

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.
