Good & Evil


You cannot hide a worthy deed

Nor truth behind one’s hand

As these are Heaven’s righteous seed

Love’s fruit in fertile land


While sin God’s eyes can always see

And lies are Satan’s breath

If from such things our lives aren’t free

They’ll lead to certain death


True love is tender always sweet

Brings peace to heart and soul

Freely given to all we meet

Will never fail it’s goal


But hate is ruthless, vile and cruel

To souls a bitter pill

From Satan’s realm, this evil tool

Can lead a saint to kill


Give love; and love will soon return

Give love as service free

Provide to all needing concern

And see the devil flee


Greed is a selfish way of life

A toxic stagnant well   

It causes pain brings endless strife

A branch of death and hell


Doubt is the devil’s scheming snare

A barrier to learn

He seeks with worldly blind to share

That they with him may burn


True faith’s a gift from God on high

A jewel precious and rare

Like yeast, can always multiply

Till endless life we share.....

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.
