Be Not A Parrot.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Be not a parrot in God’s house

Weigh up everything said

Serve God as a humble church mouse

Feasting on Heaven’s Bread


Let’s seek The Truth, the facts on high

Jesus whilst He’s near

Let all religion pass us by

But learn The Lord to fear


Let’s learn to love The Master’s ways

His righteousness His grace

His Majesty, to ever praise

And daily seek His face


Let Christ be truly Lord and King

Let’s trust Him and obey

Surrender self with everything

Each night and every day


Look not to that which best is lost

Think not on filth and dread

However high in life the cost

Look to The Lord instead


Before the night when eyes grow dim

The eve of sweet repose

Let all our deeds be praise to Him

Our Darling Sharon Rose


Let love embellish ever word

Let grace be found within

Let truth that heart and soul has heard

Bring victory over sin


Until we see the final dawn

Until The Promised Land

Let’s live that others be reborn

In Jesus mighty hand.....

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.
