The Door's Open


The fool will seek the shadows still

Will wander in the dark

Though Satan there will cheat and kill

And place on us his mark


Most think the church is stiff and cold

Full hypocrites who pray

Stale traditions from days of old

A place for old and grey


What a surprise when gaining sight

When in God’s house we stray

When first The Lord reveals His Light

And shows us Heaven’s Way


What pleasure, joy and peace is found

Excitement never known 

Climbing onward to higher ground

Toward God’s fiery throne


The Father God The King of kings

Creator of the earth

Who calls to sit beneath His wings

And bring to second birth


Washing us clean healing one’s soul

Raising one’s spirit high

Constantly guiding towards our goal

To live no more to die


Thank God for grace for open doors

For Jesus’ blood and love

Calling to us with festering sores

To join His bride above


What worldly king would do the same?

For filthy souls deceived

But bless the day I heard Christ’s name

And by God’s grace believed.....

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.
