What Will You Do?

What Will You Do?


What will you do, devoid of peace?

When day turns into night

When gentile times have come to cease

And doors are locked up tight


Make no mistake the day will dawn

When man will seek to die

Cursing the day when they were born

Cursing God’s name on high


What will you do when Satan’s loose?

When fearful men run wild?

When rape’s considered mere abuse

And easily reconciled


When murder’s seen as commonplace

When theft’s a bagatelle

What will you do without God’s grace?

Along the road to hell


Consider now; the state you’re in

Consider life at large

Consider too your walk of sin

And who is now in charge


Are you in charge of all you do?

Content with all you’ve done

Or is there something now you rue

That once you thought was fun


Are you prepared to stand in court?

To see your Judge’s face

Would God be pleased with your report?

The sum of your disgrace


Consider now what’s deep inside

Would judgement see you free?

Or are there things you’d care to hide

That no one else should see.....

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.
