Let Love Prevail


Life’s not as simple as it seems

Thistles and thorns abound

Shattering hopes, crushing one’s dreams

Where gladness should be found


Domestic quarrels neighbourhoods fight

Arguments night and day

Without God’s grace without His Light

No peace can come our way


Consider God in all you do             

As one, kneel down in prayer

Humble in truth lift high your view

Sweet unity to share


Darkness will quit its wicked wars

Evil will end its strife

Heaven will open true love’s doors

To husband and his wife


Christ is the way to life anew

Love is the death of hate

Nothing’s too hard for love to do

For those prepared to wait


Allow Christ’s hand to intervene

Let Jesus peace restore

No gloom will venture in-between

Where love has locked the door


We need God’s laws to understand

To learn the truth we’ve heard

Obey in depth each royal command

Trusting His living Word


Within the realm of Heaven’s Dove

Where gloom gives way to Light

The hardest heart can change with love

And ancient foes unite.....

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.
