Weather Change

Weather Change


The sun is out but rain’s within

The future looks quite grey

I’ve been informed because of sin

There must be change today


What can I do to make things well?

Outside the weather’s fine

But deep inside I feel like hell

With shivers down my spine


My Christian neighbours seem to cope

I’ve thought it rather odd

But change for me I’ve little hope

Without some help from God


Its dismal here depressing there

Miserable day and night

There’s little chance that I may share

Of Heaven’s great delight


In life I never learnt to pray

For such I wasn’t keen

To God I don’t know what to say

To church I’ve never been


They say I only need to kneel

Believe that Christ is true

Believe His birth and death were real

And seek for birth anew


Is this the change I’ve heard about?

Is this what must be done?

Even when still I’m plagued with doubt

If Christ is God’s true Son


Is there still time, sinners to bow?

For me to bend my knee

To pray for change to come right now?

For Christ to set me free?.....

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.
