Gross Darkness
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Gross Darkness


Gross darkness keeps the world still blind

Robbing her gift of sight

Impairing earth duping mankind

Failing to see The Light


She’s blind and deaf to Satan’s deeds

His cunning ploys abroad

Lodging amongst hell’s fruit and weeds

Hiding from Christ The Lord 


The wily serpent’s thriving still

Satan’s alive and well

Seeking to rob to cheat and kill

Along the road to hell


Since Adam time he’s lived and learned

Till master of deceit

Whichever way he’s not concerned

Just how he’ll bring defeat


We walk in sin we die in sin

Devoid of Heaven’s Glow

While God still wants to help us win

And teach The Truth to know


We hear of God enthroned in flame

We hear, yet live in doubt

Disputing facts to walk in shame

Thinking what life’s about


God opens ears and opens eyes

To Christ His Lamb and Son

The only Way to Paradise

With all life’s victories won


It’s not a dream these facts are true

Life’s fight is raging now

And God’s still calling me and you

Before His Lamb to bow.....

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.
