Simmer Down.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Simmer down, let patience reign

Seek out The Saviour’s face

Let Satan’s onslaught be in vain

Let love bring Heaven’s grace


Cause foolish arguments to cease

Cause hatred head to bow

That love brings precious lasting peace

Speak with Jesus now


For He who wants the best for you

Life’s wine, honey and cream

The impossible, standing true

Fulfilling love’s wildest dream


Let love be in, let love be out

Let love flow in between

Believe in love, doubting all doubt

Let nought else intervene


Life’s Saviour wants true loves return

Wants living joy, to stay

Malicious hate in hell to burn

With Satan’s hordes astray


Love’s the power of life’s elite

Life’s well of untold might

Where clouds of darkness beat retreat

Letting in guiding light


See true love’s power at its best

Watch smiles and laughter sway

Let He who loves us then be blessed

As squabbles fade away


So simmer down, let tempers fall

Pull Satan’s temple down

Be rid of spite, frustration’s gall

Till true love wears its crown…..

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.
