The Question of Life.....

The Question Of Life.....

Wisdom is not to life The Way

Knowledge can’t win life’s crown

Religion can lead one’s soul astray

Traditions soil one’s gown


But who have faith in Jesus’ name

Who trust in Christ God’s Son

Can leave this world devoid of shame

With all life’s battles won


God’s love on earth He’ll freely give

Through Jesus Christ on high

Through righteousness servants may live

When knowing where to buy


True virtue comes through trusting Christ

God’s righteousness divine

When blood He shed when sacrificed

We treat as priceless wine


But life’s not wine nor is it bread

Its not a church or creed

With these and more we’d still be dead

Without Salvation’s Seed


Eternal life from God is real

Through Christ we’ve nought to pay

We need but fore His cross to kneel

And in His name to pray


Through Jesus blood be born-again

Request God’s Holy Breath

Be washed set free of spot and stain

To flee from certain death


The facts of life we’ll understand

We’ll see the devil’s lies

We’ll feel the joy in Jesus’ hand

And witness death’s demise.....

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.
