       What is this Life?

We need to seek what life’s about

God’s Truth to learn and see

Be free of foolish fear and doubt

Beneath Golgotha’s tree


Who can be saved from sin on earth?

Who can be Life’s true bride?

Who can receive a second birth?

And turn on death the tide?


We’ve heard that Satan’s out to kill

To cheat, to lie and steal

To keep man from The Father’s will

And rob us of His Seal


The church is there, but who’s to know

Through discord, which is right?

Disharmony from head to toe

Claiming to have “The Light”


Each testifies to have the cure

The Truth is this or that

While unity whiles out the door

With “Welcome” on the mat


The world at large is lost and blind

Writhing in sinful pain

Instead of seeking peace of mind

She lusts for selfish gain


In life her children all have need

To seek and find The Way

The need for life, Salvation’s Seed

Of Christ God’s Lamb today!


Without Jesus, there’s no way out

His blood alone makes free

That’s what the cross is all about

Yet most fail now to see..…

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.
