Who Has Eyes To See.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

   WHO HAS EYES TO SEE

Though man degrades in disarray,

Few people yet agree

Decadence surges night and day,

But who has eyes to see?

 

Devious serpents have mankind, kissed

With venom souls to burn

Although God Himself will assist

So few to Him will turn

 

Refusing to take Christ’s healing hand

Still having no idea

The world, at large, can’t understand

The sense of godly fear

 

They need to hear from those who do

Who’ve learned, that selfless love

Will cancel death, cause birth anew

For endless life above

 

For this! God sacrificed His Son

Demonic chains to sever

That perfect victory would be won

For man to thrive forever

 

But while hell’s devils will deceive

Confused, remains mankind

Countless such love will not believe

Forlorn, stumbling, blind

 

But till like sheep, we cease to stray

Deceitful hordes to beat

We’ll fail to chase devils away

To learn at Jesus’ feet

 

The church must swift awaken now

The time grows ever nigh

Humbly to Heaven’s will bow

Or burn with those who 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.
