† † † † † † †Unforgiveness

Where un-forgiveness, free can reign

Where bitterness, can rule

Where gall and bile produces pain

Whiles freely Satanís Tool

Whoíll hide from self! The Lordís report

Suppress the truth within

Believe the lies from Satan bought

Their souls he seeks to win

Why are such eyes to Jesus blind?

Why death still reaps its toll?

Look deep inside, o selfish mind

Consult the troubled soul

Consider unforgiveness well

Where bitterness has reigned ĖEph.4:31-32

Such woe can only lead to hell

As Jesus Christ explained ĖMt.6:14-15

Forgiveness; brings sweet joy and peace

Godís love to drink as wine

But where thereís malice, love will cease

And sickness is a sign

Before The Lord gives birth anew

Ere joining Jesusí bride

No evil can remain in view

To self; one must have died

Break off the chains to hellís defeat

Reject the devilís ploy

Hold fast! The Lord of victory sweet

Drink deep Loveís cup of joy

Godís chalice full of freedomís song

Releasing those once cursed

Who drink The Truth and Christ belong

Will always quench their thirstÖ..

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.
