Be Not a Fool

Be Not a Fool


Living to sin, a stench on high

We walk through life in vain

We need to change before we die

We need to start again


A second chance to live and see

However good we seem

Only a fool would not agree

To drink of Heaven’s Stream


To live to love and not to fight

Be rid of hell’s debris

By faith to share God’s gift of Light

To walk in victory


To know it’s wrong to walk in shame

To live in constant sin

The wrath of God to re-inflame

Through festering filth within


Though sceptics scoff will walk in doubt

Will close to God their door

Yet what their tongues may brag about

The fool has said before


We’ve seen the wicked bloom and thrive

We watch them mock and jeer

While we in Jesus Christ alive

Walk Heaven’s Way down here


Common are much the tales of sin

Frequent of those in Christ

Poor without born rich within

As offerings sacrificed


But when Christ comes to reign on earth

The day we servants yearn

Mockers and fools will curse their birth

Whilst deep in hell they burn.......

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.
