†††††††††† Pen & Ink

How hard seems oft oneís daily fight

To do The Fatherís will

To walk in truth, hold fast The Light

To climb Salvation Hill

How hard to stand, to fail no more

To hold to not let go

For fear when entering Heavenís door

The Judge will want to know

Heíll want to know the life weíve led

The way weíve sought and took

Heíll call to read from A to Z

Heíll call to see The Book

The Book of good and evil acts

The Book of life itself

The Book of truth with all the facts

The Book on Jesusí shelf

Manís life is simile to a pen

Each deed, a drop of ink

We write each word, yet even when

We fail to stop and think

Its time to stop and think right now!

Its time to take account

Its time to look, to see just how

We act on Zion mount

Are you; quite true to all youíve heard?

To all Godís Lamb has said?

Still true to God, your given word?

Or are you walking dead?

What must the Judge of life believe?

Will Jesus understand?

He knows the devil can deceive

The pen! Is in your hand..Ö

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.
