Drink of Wisdom's Source

� � � Drink of Wisdom's Source.....

When man slew man with jealous hand

When anger drenched the earth

Cain was expelled from God�s fair land

For giving hatred birth

Atomic bomb and aeroplane

Missiles of every kind

Has now the world become insane?

Has man now lost his mind?

Why else should brothers seek to fight?

Why else must wars be fought?

Surely sanity�s taken flight

Ending intelligent thought

Is no place left for brotherly love?

Must hate direct our course?

Will kings not look for help above?

Has fear become our source?

The bible tells us crystal clear

Rumours of war must be

But must God�s children die with fear?

Before one�s eyes can see!

Before we break this world apart

Its time to take account

To speak the truth to search one�s heart

To drink of wisdom�s fount

Let�s hear what Jesus has to say

Let�s see what God has planned

Let�s seek through love Salvation�s Way

Let�s seek to save our land

Let�s seek to save the world itself

Let�s seek God�s face anew

Let�s take the bible off the shelf

And see what Christ will do.....

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.
