Watch Yourself!!


Since God made man and raised from dust

Heís wanted to be free

To satisfy oneís selfish lust

Through all that eyes could see

Since Satan sowed his evil seed

On flesh he comes to call

Knowing too well manís wayward deeds

Will bring about oneís fall

Now self must; fall must cease to shine

Must hunger, thirst and die

No longer boast, this life is mine

But His who reigns on high

We ought to wash each otherís feet

As Jesus did before

When serving thus, weíll bring defeat

To Satan and his corps

We know this world has nought to give

When wise to Satanís lie

We know in Christ if manís to live

All self we must deny

We need to join The Lamb who died

Plant true loveís mighty seed

Until Godís fruit has multiplied

Till free of Satanís weed

When more of Christ, we get to know

When self we put aside

Godís glorious Light begins to show

Where darkness cannot hide

To be like Christ, must self decrease

True souls will understand

Through love oneís life will never cease

Just as our Father planned.....

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.
