And There Was Light
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

    And there was light

There is no God” a fool will say

So who can judge when people stray

The BANG created all we see

Nothing was made by God’s decree


Yet truth will always come to light

Wisdom’s dawn brings spiritual sight

Still fools are blind to Jesus’ hand

Deaf; to that which God has planned


“Let there be light God’s voice was heard

The Holy Ghost performed The Word

“Let there be land, let there be sky”

Again The Father spoke on high


God formed the earth divided seas

Established fish, fruit bearing trees

The sun the moon Pluto and Mars

Heaven He filled with jewel like stars


Creatures God made to swim and fly

The beasts, the birds, clouds in the sky

The ant the whale, microbe and flea

Nothing evolved, or happened to be


In God’s likeness Adam was made

Never to die never to fade

To walk to live without a care

Jesus designed how man should fare


Yet something failed from Adam’s life

So from man’s rib God made his wife

To these God gave both great and small

Till disobedience brought their fall


Now broken was their Father’s law

With guilt they bore the devil’s spore

“Leave my presence”  again The Voice

“The devil or I” God gives the choice???.....

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.
