Truth Needs No Defence
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † †Truth Needs no Defence

All lies fall short, must bend the knee

When facts begin to glow

Where like lifeís King into the sea

All streams of truth will flow

Like dogs to vomit we return

Once more we play as fools

When from the past we fail to learn

When tongues are Satanís tools

Yet tongues are not alone to blame

Oneís mind can be a snare

Our hands perform their work of shame

That need so oft repair

We must defend each wilful lie

Conceal them night and day

But truth prevails and cannot die

Wisdomís content to say

Truth needs no mask for prying eyes

From nought it takes to flight

Deceit; though seeks to wear disguise

And fears lifeís probing light

The facts have need of no defence

No truth need end its course

Need pay to life, no recompense

To Heavenís righteous source

Itís always firm, always erect

Through tempest storm and gale

No syllable will God reject

When time has come to fail

Deceit will quake before the throne

Bear all The Judge on high

While God claims Truth as Heavenís own

And gives what none can buyÖ..

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.
