Talking Cares Screaming Scares.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Some preachers scream they’ll rant on stage

In pulpits through the land

Even from off a bible’s page

So children understand


Raging as if we’re made of stone

In church or on TV

They’ll shout, with modern, microphone

The world their pride can see


Can not the world see fools at play?

The blind not here their pride

Did Christ then, Paul not show The Way?

To feed and fetch inside 


Grace is The Way God  is the source

With love life’s race is run

Caring sharing redemption’s force

Through Jesus Christ God’s Son


Through Christ, Christ through the death of Christ

Rising God’s Truth to share

The reason why He was sacrificed

With peoples everywhere


So quietly with grace, He came

With love for one and all

Who’ll turn from sin from deadly shame

For power not to fall


His voice The Lord came not to raise

No reed would Jesus bruise

Throughout the land in former days

Delivering The News


We read The Truth The living Facts

Most exquisitely told

Testified in God’s book of Acts

To guide His precious fold.....

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.
