Today! Consider tomorrow

Of tares of golden wheat

Consider The Man of sorrow

And of the time we meet


Think of Heaven, fire and hell

Of life, death’s endless night

Of all the things angels would tell

Of living Bread & Light


Consider well who Jesus is

Consider why He came

Consider all ordained be His

Walking the path of shame


Give thought of mother, father, kin,

Neighbours and friends close by

Think of the state of grace they’re in

Think of the day they die


Soon every knee to Christ must bow

Where each their sin confess

So let’s prepare to meet Him now

And all our ways address


Let all examine self today

Consider all we’ve done

Seek God’s forgiveness as we pray

For those without His Son


We need God’s Lamb as Lord and King

As Counsellor and friend

Trusting in Him for everything

Until the very end


Until we see Jesus return

Upon His steed of white

Before the world begins to burn

And God turns off the light.....

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.
