There Must Be Change
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Manís wicked flesh is all the same
Just looking out for ďMEĒ
We suit ourselves, to sin and shame
Till Jesus; sets us free

The world; we then, behold as strange
Amazed! We see the view
Within oneís life, thereís been a change
Because of birth, anew!

There must; be change! Or somethingís wrong
Weíre still wrapped up in sin
In Christís true church; we wonít stay long
Unless! We ask Him in

Good works alone are not a sign
True life is in oneís soul
No offering nor bread and wine
Can make a person whole

Itís Christ within! We need to feel
From sin; we all must turn
That God may give His Holy Seal
So filth and chaff will burn

Demonic fault can none afford
To carry round inside
Where else, would live a Holy Lord?
Who for this reason died!

Give up each crutch, on which you lean
With evil, have no part
Allow Christís blood your soul to clean
And sanctify your heart

Once change has brought your doubt to burn
Once love begins to reign
Foolish mistakes, will cause to learn
When truly born again.....

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.
