The Fight for Life
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

† † † The Fight for Life

Itís hard to lay the world aside

Allow oneís self decay

Live life as Jesusí loyal bride

And walk the righteous way

Itís hard the devil to forsake

Escape the snares of life

A lifetime habit loose to shake

And be a faithful wife

What cause can bring a sinnerís eyes?

To leave the path of hell

Believe in God and paradise

And taste Salvationís Well

Just how on earth can this be done?

What saviour can be found?

Just how can slaves be free to run?

From that which has one bound

For this; we need to see The Light!

Godís Lamb & Son as Lord

His awesome strength to stand and fight

His Flame and two-edged sword

We must be wise to Satanís way

See through his dark disguise

Astute to all he has to say

But deaf to all his lies

To journey on to Heavenís shore

To Jesus bend the knee

Lock tight to Satan every door

Give Christ the only key

When in the Lord we place our trust

When faith in Christ is high

Our enemies will turn to dust

Oneís selfish cares will dieÖ..

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.
