Don't Laugh At Me.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Don’t laugh at me nor think me fool

For none am I for sure

Accept God’s grace allow Him rule

As love guide ever more


I’m not unique, special or great

No one of which to boast

Just someone knowing a sinners fate

Without The Holy Ghost


I once was lost once blind once dead

Once filthy as could be

Till Truth set free from Satan’s bed

And gave me eyes to see


Think not it lies when now I tell

Life’s facts of truth & light

Love raised this sinner bound for hell

To be Christ’s bride in white


Though no one’s fool, but lofty proud

I walked the path of shame

A sinner in the maddening crowd

Cursing my Father’s name


The name of God of Christ His Son

I slandered and blasphemed

Now saved by grace with battles won

I live as never dreamed


Don’t laugh nor snigger whilst I speak

Of fearful days to be

Of things to make the strongest weak

When without Christ they see


Because of love for you and I

And righteousness prevail

Christ chose as lamb for us to die

And free from hell’s dark jail.....

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.
