We Mock When Others Do
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

We Mock when Others

Before we see the devilís lie

Before oneís 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 weíve life anew

Through whom lifeís song we sing

We sing because Lifeís Lightís 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 lifeís Path

Before through faith deathís veil is torn

Before Godís pending wrath

The world should see the devil now

Refuse to be his tools

Religionís 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 Godís 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 Christís bride

But few will come to understand

Before lifeís last divide..Ö

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.
