Break out
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † † † †Break out

Held captive in the liarís jail

Through bars fast, strong and stout

But though Godís truth would pay the bail

We sit in chains of doubt

We doubt because the lying cheat

Wears sweet disguise so well

In subtle ways heíll oft defeat

And lead one off to hell

We doubt because of things weíre taught

False doctrine clothed in light

Theyíll say its Jesusí true report

Though Christ is not in sight

Yet Jesus chose His life to give!

For blind lost souls to see

Those walking dead may rise to live

And set the captives free

Instead weíre bound with Satanís chain

Restrained through lies weíve heard

Like dogs to vomit, we turn again

Rejecting Heavenís Word

Religion, is the devilís tail

Hellís song is our desire ĖJas.1:14

Through Satanís charm we often fail

And so to end in fire

The liar twists Salvationís code

The Fatherís Word to life

Itís hard to kick against the goad

To be a faithful wide

We must break free hellís yoke of lust

Allow our chains to fall

Turn self-desire to lifeless dust

Answering Jesusí call.....†

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.
