Life's Author .

   Life's Author Within.

The bible’s not a sissy book

Written the world to fool

But life to those who’ll not just look

But let The Author rule


To love, to guide, nurture with care

Strengthen from inside out

To feed the starving everywhere

Healing the soul of doubt


Till righteousness becomes one’s song

Life’s book tells every age

Yet most will read what’s right and wrong

Then quickly turn the page


Printing this life’s a game to play

We learn to push and shove

Skipping pages of judgement day

To read the ones on love


Depraved, we ponder novel vice

We seek for self, alone!

The Author though demands a price

Life’s book is not our own


Page SIN, is not the final word

God’s TRUTH is duly sent

Salvation can be read and heard

By those who would repent


The Publisher, prints night and day

His Word’s an open door

Life’s Author once was sent away

To write His books no more


But none could keep The Author down

Almighty is His Pen

He won life’s prized eternal crown

And writes The Truth again..…

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.
