Tears of Fear
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

†††††† Tears of fear

Inside my heart, itís pouring; down

Most every day itís rain

But always, like a circus clown

I paint a smile again

When all alone though in a crowd

Iíll stand with head held high

Iíll smile a while, Iíll laugh out loud

But in my heart I cry

I cry when others dance and sing

I cry because I know

Through sin Iíve left my Lord and King

With no-where else to go

To Christ I was a precious jewel

Each day was such a thrill

Until one day just like a fool

I turned from Zion Hill

Iím too ashamed to say just why

Far too ashamed to tell

But this I know if I should die!

Iíd find myself in hell

Can you my friend not pray for me?

Pray God would end my pain

Would through His love once more agree-

To take me back again

Thereís no excuse for me; my friend

To God I cannot lie

Knowing The Truth! I canít pretend

Iím so afraid to die

In torment nights, I lie awake

In dread I rise each day

Forever soon Iíll face the lake

So please my friend please pray.....

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.
