OBNOXIOUS TRASH

Don’t waste your life with sin my friend
In such a wasteful way
The sinful ways of all will end
When comes the judgement day

Make no mistake its coming fast
When judged will be one’s lot
Each breath you take could be your last
God knows how long we’ve got

Like most I thought that sin was fun
So much have I to tell
But gave it up for Christ God’s Son
Who taught life’s truth so well

Perhaps you’ve heard it all before
Yet God you gave no mind
But dying fools can find no door
Once self has made them blind

Let go of sin of foolish doubt
Heed well to what I say
Look up and see what God’s about
Try Jesus Christ today!

We’ve nought to lose but all to gain
I speak to you no lie
Christ says in whom He comes to reign
Will never truly die

Life’s offer yet remains my friend
God’s Word stands just the same
Through Christ God’s Lamb we’ll see no end
Once cleansed of sin and shame

Of course this may sound strange right now
Just as it was for me
But wisdom teaches one to bow
And knowledge sets us free…

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.
