Ever Dragon
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † †Ever seen a Dragon?

Have you ever felt a dragonís claw?

Or heard a serpent talk?

Have you ever seen the dead before?

Rise up in strength and walk?

If after thought, you answer no

Or think the question dumb!

The Truth my friend you ought to know

To Christ you need to come

All those who scoff, are dumb and blind

Like fools, they shake their head

The Lord, they have no wish to find

But man without, is dead!

Yet God is love, and love is true

True Love is Christ Godís Son

Through whom by grace weíve life anew

When all on earth is done

But sceptics still, are plagued with doubt

Pondering night and day

Theyíll sometimes find; what lifeís about

Yet lose it on the way

With Light; The Truth will dawn my friend

Of this there is no doubt

The way to bring the dragonís end

Is just to turn about

Turn now my friend, to Christ and win

Repent; receive The Light

The serpentís voice you hear within

Could rob you of your sight

Godís Lamb alone can set us free

In Christ we learn to feel

We feel the claw and faith can see

In Truth the dragonís realÖ..

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.
