The Truth the Life the Way
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

  The Truth the Life the Way

Since Adam first was given birth

We’ve been at constant war

Disgraced and cursed to work the earth 

When God closed tight His door


Perchance, we’ve sought The Way to go

Though few would seek to pray

Though God alone can guide to show

The Truth, The Life, The Way


The Truth, to know we cheat and lie

The Truth, to know we kill

The Truth, to know until we die

We seek our selfish will


The will, that leads from Jesus’ Light

The will, that’s Satan’s knife

The will, that robs of perfect sight

We need to find true Life


The Life, we need when dead in sin

The Life, when led astray

The Life, we seek to dwell within

To guide us all The Way


The Way that leads to Truth again

The Way, to Life once more

The Way, which cleanses every stain

To find Salvation’s Door


The Door, in Truth is living Seed

With growth through faith in Light

Whose fruit we bear others to feed

Needing to win the fight


 The fight for Life, in Truth is won

Struggling where death is gain

Dying to self for God’s True Son

To live with Him to reign…..

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.
