He Who Seeks


I thought one day all life must end

For death is everywhere

If into hell I would descend

 Would someone even care?


I asked around and heard of Christ

For me they said He died

The Lamb The Father sacrificed

That life be magnified


I gave much thought to what was said

Renown is Jesus’ love

His blood can even bless the dead

To rise to live above


How long I sought in deepest prayer

Alone inside my room

But Jesus never seemed to care

To save me from my doom


There must be something wrong I thought

They told me God was true

He even wrote a large report

For all the world to view


That self same day, I bought The Book

Amazed I read it through

My eyes, my heart began to look

What God would have us do


At first I thought it all in vain

But now I saw my goal

So earnestly I prayed again

To save my sinful soul


When fire inside I thought to feel 

The Truth; revealed The Way

I knew God’s Lamb God’s Son is real

And know He’s here to stay.....

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.
