One Way Only,,,,,
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


As the lost world looks in wonder

Some congregations too

God’s lambs are ripped asunder

Seeking The Way that’s true

 

People see Christ as just a name

Nothing special or odd

All religions are most the same

With this or that as god

 

Saying Christians are deluded

Deceived yet fail to see

Where deities are all excluded

Except for one who’s three

 

But how stubborn are the foolish

Failing to understand

Obstinate, behaving mulish

Sticking their heads in sand

 

The world sees only black and white

Where book readers are heard

Thinking majorities are right

They disregard life’s word

 

If only more would bibles read

Consume like meat and bread

Their friends and neighbours they would feed

And many walking dead

 

The Father sees His servant’s plight

His faithful Heaven bound

Though Jesus came to spread life’s light

Guiding to hallowed ground

 

Still deaf to truth, to facts so blind

Fools eat what fools still sell

So err and stray most of mankind

Along the road to hell…..

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.
