Have you ever thought, why you're here?

The reason why you were born?

Read the bible, front to rear?

Spared thought, of tomorrow's dawn?


Think of things that have never been

Life's living Book portrays

The future, God alone has seen

Your very soul will amaze


God knows  your mind, one's every thought

Knows every word we speak

Each tender word, countless retort

Expressions when we shriek


What one fears, what's exciting

Causes laughter, tears we cry

Every devil one's inviting

What happens when we die


This! truly is worth thinking about

Today, tomorrow in view

Of grave importance, without doubt

Now, should be plain to you


Life is not a Merry-Go-Round

Amusement, night and day

Riding high with feet on the ground

Without a thought to pray


Consider! whom life is giving

Who watches night and day

Life's true Shepherd, to the living

Walking Salvation's Way


This must one do if one is wise

Not to harvest sorrow

But unto God, open your eyes

Wait NOT . until tomorrow.....

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.
