Pause To Think

Pause to Think

The world was such a peaceful place

Till Adam bore the curse

Yet sin within the human race

Will make it daily worse

Satanic life has come so far

Now fear and turmoil reign

What even children bear the scar

And walk the path of Cain

Thereís murder, rape, robbery, deceit

No matter where we go

Itís common place to lie and cheat

Yet no one wants to know

Man wants the thinks he doesnít need

He grabs, what comes in sight

On sin; the flesh will daily feed

†Gorging with great delight

Itís time to pause and deeply think

When will it ever end

Just how much further must we sink?

How long; can we pretend?

Living this life from day to day

Felling inside alone

While devils pull, to have their way

While Jesus draws; His own

Within the mind, the fight goes on

Twixt Truth and filthy lie

A few believe Godís Lamb and Son

And turn; to rise on high

His Spirit comes to set them free

To drink The Morning Dew

With living Truth for eyes to see

The Way; to life anewÖ..

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.
