For worldly gain, Iíll waste no time

This life on earthís too short

Iíve left behind my days of crime

Iíve read The Lordís Report

Since Heaven raised my consciousness

Since Christ became my all

Upon The Lordís ship RIGHTEOUSNESS

Iíll not look back or fall

Iím going on without a care

From all before, Iím done

Iím Heaven bound to have my share

With Christ! Godís living Son

The Truth must now be clear to all

Manís flesh, God made from dust

Yet through His Lamb, weíll never fall

When He alone, we trust

The One, with holes in hands and feet

Whose blood flows free as wine

Whose flesh is now my daily meat

Whose Light of life is mine

Before I come to Heavenís feast

In Christ Iíll do my bit

Iíll fight the foe that ancient beast

Whoís destined for the pit

Thereís nowhere else for me to go

Not now the facts Iíve seen

Not since Godís Flame began to glow

And purged this child now clean

By grace, Iíll walk Godís chosen Way

With faith; as constant guide

With Christ as Lord my rod and stay

With Truth alive inside.....

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.
