Where Are You?

Where Are You?


Parting we find is seldom sweet

When life has closed the gates

When face to face our God we’ll meet

Eternity awaits


Forever in hell’s gruesome flame

Or life with Heaven’s few

Choose now the devil’s path of shame

Or do as Christ would do


Some see in life they’re cold and lost 

They seek to find The Lord

They follow Christ what ere the cost

And flee the coming sword


Countless deny salvation’s tree

Decline life’s righteous path

Refuse to fight for victory

To reap eternal wrath


Depending on which side we speak

If yet we understand

Whether or not our faith is weak

And who is in command


Few know what fate they’ll have to share

What happens when we die?

While devils seek still everywhere

For such as you and I


There’s no escape no place to hide

No way with death to strive

Whatever wealth we’ve multiplied

We cannot stay alive


The choice remains with every breath

Take Christ or Satan’s hand

We need to know before our death

What future life has planned?.....

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.
