Just Like Ants.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

        Just Like Ants.....

People live here and people there

Like ants within a field

Though people living everywhere

Harvest not half their yield


Ants do the work for which they’re made

For which God placed on earth

They’ll forage food on hill and glade

For all, their queen gives birth


Exploring in the great unknown

In danger day and night

Still ants will merge will stand as one

Will put their foes to flight


When foes ten thousand times their size

Assail their fort like mound

How quick the enemy realise

That ants stand firm their ground


The ant should be of great concern

Should cause deep thought today

Should show that man has much to learn

From nature’s great display


This nature that our Father planned

This planet sweet and cruel

Created by The Master’s hand

For man to love and rule


While ants are but a minute part

And humans made so great

For God has taken us to heart

Upon His name to wait


We too like ants should bring inside

Should seek the things we need

Until God’s church comes forth as bride

Of Christ His righteous Seed.....

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.
