Life's Rope


This world is full of evil crime

Where man has but one hope

Where each has got a hill to climb

And Jesus is The Rope


Life’s Way is not an easy one

Devils are all around

Although we walk with Christ God’s Son

Trouble; may still be found                       Jn.16:33


No bed of roses every day

No stone-less even path

Still Jesus is The only Way

To flee the coming wrath                          Rev.20:14-15


“Life won’t be easy Jesus said                  Rev.2:3

That isn’t why I came                               Mt.10:34

So many yet may live in dread

When free of all your shame”


For each! May have a cross to bear

A burden drenched with pain

Christ said His love He’ll come to share

When once we take the strain


To make it hard to Heaven’s door

The devil tries so much

Both day and night the beast will roar

But Christ is still in touch


No matter what this life may bring

However much we cry

One must be true to Christ our King

Who’ll help us when we try


Christ speaks to all with birth anew

Who’s blood has set them free

“I’ve overcome; and so will you               Jn.16:33

If you remain in me”..…

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.
