It's Free

 

We seek it here we seek it there

Seeking its warmth and glow

Through Christ it should be everywhere

Yet still few people know

 

It heals the sick imprisons fear

Sets heart and soul aflame

Upon the cross we see it clear

When Christ removes our shame

 

A flowing stream of joy and peace

A treasure faithful sought

A wondrous gift, souls to release

To deeds of noble thought

 

It can’t be bought nor is it lent

It frees the heart of pain

It’s valueless until it’s spent

Though many try in vain

 

It’s true, tangible, impacting real

No action of the mind

It goes beyond the way we feel

Although deaf-mute and blind

 

It sees no colour, knows no creed

Is never found to lie

In simplest man this noble seed

Bears fruit to glorify

 

Producing crops before unknown

Refined from wayward sin

A fruit befitting Heaven’s throne

Through living Light within

 

Constant in all who Christ believe

Paving The Way above

Who knows what next man will achieve?

Through selflessness of LOVE......

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.
