We Mock When Others Do.....

 We Mock When Others Do.....

Before we see the devil’s lie

Before one’s born anew

We doubt Christ lived or chose to die

And mock when others do


Who have His Ghost know Christ is true

Know Christ is Lord and King

We know because we’ve life anew

Through whom life’s song we sing


We sing because Life’s Light’s arrived

Darkness has bowed its head

We sing our song to those deprived

To those still walking dead


For dead we walk before the dawn

Where shadows shroud life’s Path

Before through faith death’s veil is torn

Before God’s pending wrath


The world should see the devil now

Refuse to be his tools

Religion’s head should finally bow

And die the death of fools


So countless more would seek The Light

Jesus would be believed

As one the bride would then unite

And see God’s plan achieved


But veils remain on worldly eyes 

Deceived; most fail to hear

Believing still demonic lies

They live in doubt and fear


Not all can see the facts at hand

Not all become Christ’s bride

But few will come to understand

Before life’s last divide..…

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.
