Blundering Ignorance.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Why are life’s truths despised today?

Disputed in our schools?

Our living God is thought passé’

Believed alone by fools

 

All but few from every nation

Considers God to be

Considers this vast creation

Was formed alone be He

 

While each day one’s death draws near

A minute span from birth

Our living God is shown no fear

While devils prowl the earth

 

So is the source of ignorance reign

According to Satan’s plan

Why only few get born-again

Into a perfect man

 

This is God’s awesome desire

Why troubles are set before

How only few souls enquire

The Route to Heaven’s Door

 

Through selfishness, life’s gain we seek

When lust takes full control

A powerful few suppress the weak

Failing Salvation’s Goal

 

Though all sorts of evil. is wealth

Silver and gold to find

Seek shrewd connivers by ruthless stealth

Believe True Love is blind

 

There is a Way to understand

God’s living righteous Path

Walking with Jesus hand in hand

Fleeing eternal wrath.....

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.
