I’m weeping here in deep disgrace

Full sin and steeped in shame

I sought no time to seek God’s face

Although I knew His name


Eternity stands close before

Hell’s jaws are gaping wide

I may have entered Heaven’s Door

If not for foolish pride


For worldly lust for selfish gain

For fleeting pleasures gone

I lived my wayward life in vain

Without God’s Lamb and Son


I witnessed others call Him Lord

I laughed The Truth to scorn

So now I face God’s vengeful sword

Beyond the youngest dawn


Before a righteous God I’ll stand

Before His judgement throne

Instead of Jesus’ helping hand

I’ll endless weep alone


I would be free of Heaven’s wrath

So blessed with joy today

Instead I chose the devil’s path

I walked my selfish way


Death’s hand is not within the grave

I know before I die

Rejecting Christ who came to save

I stand condemned on high


I’ll hear of all the sins I’ve done

I’ll hear The Truth first hand

I’ll see the face of Christ God’s Son

And burn at His command.....

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.
