What Good's Silver What Worth's Gol
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Seek God for what you ought to do

Resist satanic crime

Or else there’s no excuse for you

Beyond the end of time


You think of silver dream of gold

Thinking The Truth to know

But of The Facts, you won’t be told

While selfish ways you go


Get up! Get off the devil’s road

Repent bend God your knee

Give Jesus Christ your tainted load

That He can make you free


You think you're high and lifted up

Having that rank and name

But have you right to drink The Cup?

And will you flee The Flame?


Open your ears, your greedy eyes

Render your filthy heart

Repent break all the devil’s ties

Pray for a brand new start


Has not The Lord your soul in view

Will not His grace suffice?

Is not His love enough for you?

For you to sacrifice


Turn to The living God on high

Learn of the devil’s ploys

Allow the selfish man to die

Resist demonic toys


Do not be fooled, God won’t be mocked

He’ll let you play your game

But soon you’ll find the bank is locked

And you’ll be left in shame.....

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.
