Who'll Walk Life's Pathway

Who'll Walk Life's Pathway

 

Who’ll walk Life’s way must first perceive

Man’s road is certain death

Must see The Cross must Christ believe

Can give eternal breath

 

Unwilling though to bend their knee

Whilst darkness interferes

The lost walk blind always to be

Plagued with bitter tears

 

We must be silent giving thought

Observing God’s display

Consider Jesus Christ’s report

Then for His pardon pray

 

It may at first seem hard to do

But take a little pause

With past and future plain in view

Observe your present flaws

 

Linger a while a moment more

Allow The Truth to rise

Allow The Light within the door

And open wide your eyes

 

Allow a while once more to flow

Allow yourself unwind

Allow The Son of God to sow

Life’s Seed into your mind

 

Allow awhile to germinate

Let Heaven love declare

Allow your ego next deflate

That fruit may come to bear

 

When closing darkness tight one’s door

Walking by light of day

From here, there and all before

The Lord will lead The Way.....

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.
