Give Life a Try




Few think or care on hell’s dark path

On roads of self desire

Despite of God of Heaven’s wrath

And final pit of fire


God’s warnings seem of little worth

Rejecting Jesus as Heir

So fools continue flooding earth

With evil everywhere


But life will smile at truth’s caress

As facts of Christ appear

When sinful souls their past confess

And hearts learn God to fear


But who has ears or eyes to see?

Who thinks of selfless love?

Whose heart and soul would now agree?

With Heaven’s will above


Who’ll help the weary find life’s goal?

Who’ll help the blind to seek?

Bear a thought for a hungry soul?

For neighbours old and weak


Who’ll love a liar cheat and thief?

Who’ll care for those in jail

The sick the dying lost in grief

Who’s lives seem lived in vain


Who’ll teach their neighbours how to cope?

The drifter void of sight

Restore their faith rekindle hope

Along life’s road to Light


By spending self in truth and love

Showing this world we care

Opens The Way to life above

And all Heaven will share.....

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.
