No Liar (2)


Out from the heart, the tongue will speak

Man’s essence cannot hide

The Truth one day ordained to leak

Will prove what’s deep inside


While fools may think, that no one knows

Yet Jesus’ flock agree

No matter where a liar goes

The Shepherd’s sure to see


Liars may stand when life runs good

But time will see them sway

Who’ve built on silt a house of wood?

Will see it fall away


From mothers, fathers children too

Many may seem correct

Alone will stand a minute few

Who’s house will not be wrecked


Some say they’ll come, but yet they don’t!

Life’s Truth remains them strange

They say they will, but know they won’t

With every wind they change


Exactly how we treat The Lord!

Those lost as well as free

What’s truly in your heart now stored?

Just take a look and see


With whom would Jesus care to walk?

On whom, can God depend?

Does God accept the way you talk?

Would Christ your speech defend?


Answers are in the fruit we bear

On how we play our part

Is love the reason why we share?

Is truth within the heart?.....

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.
