Are You Self Centred.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Is your life self-centred and free

Thinking you’re living right

A satisfied ending to see

Throughout death’s endless night


How many are thinking the same?

The rich seeking more wealth

So the world revolves in its shame

Without knowing her health


Baring children to live in sin

Abominable to die

Where only few find faith to win

Knowledge, of someone on high


Where Jews have known from their birth

Since Abram heard God’s Voice

True wisdom was furnished on earth

Giving lost souls, a choice


I know! For I was one of them

Self-centred through and through

Till learning Christ’s birth in Bethlehem



Alive!!! Now awesomely living

Knowing from whence I’ve come

Accepting NEW BIRTH Christ giving

I’ll beat SALVATION’S drum


Announcing LIFE’S future wedding

God! Now seeking Christ’s bride

You too; may come where I’m heading

Praying my GROOM inside


Fortunate am I being here

The future, Jesus and I

No longer living in fear

Knowing I’ll NEVER die.....

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.
