Life's Arms.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Though true life’s arms are open wide

Though grace in love cries out

Selfishness bars The Way inside

And hides Life’s Door with doubt


Deceit distorts The Father’s Word

That sets the captive free

Forgiveness; is an alien world

Where love is meant to be


Love of money dictates most lives

Corruption’s commonplace

Adultery grows, pornography thrives

Before God’s holy face


God’s seen as myth with Noah’s whale

What use is there to pray?

Satan’s another fairy tale

So children will obey


Now bible and God are seen as fake

Preachers deny the facts

God’s so-called laws are man’s to break

By all unrighteous acts


Judicial courts plagued with deceit

Succumb as murders rise

Rapists in jail, thugs from the street

Believe its paradise


What’s good is bad, what’s right is wrong

Christians are seen as fools

While cunning rogues, singing their song

Self; is the child that rules


Beware; take care before life ends

Before The Lord’s returns

Make sure your knee to Jesus bends

Before God’s anger B-U-R-N-S…..

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.
