Creation's Groaning,,,,,
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Creation’s groaning and panting

In anguish, pain and strife

Until grace has finished planting

Love’s seed that leads to life


But while few are earnest sowing

Warning of every sin

While man’s mind’s still toing and froing

No reaper can come in


Rape and murder’s everywhere

Criminals are commonplace

Now no one seems to give a care

About this sad disgrace


Anger and hatred escalates

Showing no great concern

Opening wider, perdition’s gates

More devils’ fools to burn


Take dusty bibles from the shelf

Even if old and grey

Be no fool, employ yourself

Read all that God will say


Reject devils and Satan’s way

Examine deep inside

Converse with Jesus Christ today

Tell all you sought to hide


God knows already, everything

Each deed, word and thought

But wants to give, life’s song to sing

Hearing your true report


Resisting lust, immediately

Seek out Christ Jesus’ face

Watch sin and devils from you flee

Without a meagre trace…..

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.
