God Is Not to Blame
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


††† God is not to blame

This worldís in such an evil state

As anyone can see

Yet some blame God, some others fate

Or is it you and me?

Most live to do just as we please

While few have God in mind

Fewer and fewer bend their knees

Where shameful eyes stay blind

Itís not Godís plan to bring man down

To see His children cry

To rob them of their promised crown

Nor make them sick and die

Though Christ has come to raise man up!

To lift us from the dust

We choose to drink from Satanís cup

And fill oneís soul with lust

Just what on earth has Christ to do?

When God Himself is grieved

But let our wars disasters too

Reveal Heís not deceived

But those sitting at Jesusí feet

Who live to love each day

May live to grow as golden wheat

And learn to walk His Way

The Lord is not to blame my friends

What still occurs on earth

Itís up to us to make amends

Serving for all weíre worth

We must be free of filth today

Receive lifeís Living Dew

Bid Christ as Lord, to come and stay

And live through life anew.....

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.
