What Are Your Thoughts?

What Are Your Thoughts?

 

What are your thoughts now fallen man?

How foolish are your ways

Since youth you’ve known my Father’s plan

To never ending days

 

There’s just One Way through Paradise

One Way for death to die

One Guarantee who’s paid the price

To endless peace on high

 

Yet Satan seeks your souls to win

Tempting your earthly tent

You fail through lust through wanton sin

Through ploys devils invent

 

You know I died to set you free

To give you birth anew

But while you’re still ashamed of me

I’ll be ashamed of you

 

You’ve seen The Light! Yet live in fear

Afraid the truth to tell

You know The Way to Heaven’s clear

But filthy walk to hell 

 

Repent! Allow The Truth inside

Renounce your futile lies

Religion reaches ever wide

Blinding more children’s eyes

 

Most find religion’s true and right

The devil veils the mind 

Devoid of Truth devoid of sight

They wander lost and blind

 

Whatever fools may offer now

What worldly wisdom’s planned?

To live my child with love in view

Give Jesus’ now your hand.....

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.
