†††††††††††††† Choose

Consider truth, each wondrous form

Consider wisdomís gain

Consider refuge in a storm

Consider Christ to reign

If bidding Jesus in your heart

Brings life with so much more

Eternity for one to start

Selfís death will be the door

Donít turn your back and walk away

Donít toss your head in pride

Donít say Iíll come another day

To be a faithful bride

For only fools have this mind

Living their life of sin

But I am God to nothing blind

Iíll never let them in

Lifeís offer now could be your last

How long have you to live?

Consider child before Iíve passed

This choice I freely give

While fools would think that all is well

Would think this lifeís a game

Gnashing their teeth, theyíll weep in hell

While burning steeped in shame

I say these things because I care

Because true love is great

I have so much with you to share

But sinful fools I hate

That hell is real should be no doubt

But Heavenís also true

Consider well what lifeís about

The choice I leave to you?.....

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.
