Deliberating Facts


Intricate is the human mind

Self consciousness of man

The will to seek one’s hope to find

The essence of life’s plan


Consider ears nose and eyes

Thumbs on a well formed hand

The choice of truth of speaking lies

And seek to understand


What causes sun and moon to shine?

The stars to twinkle bright

What can the vilest soul refine?

And flood with perfect light


Could nature make a brain appear?

A conscious soul to be

Cause selfless love, give birth to fear

And build a child like me


Could evolution cause these things?

Nature life’s wonders form?

Could time or chance warn eagle wings?

To fly above a storm


Or could there be a God above?

A Kingdom in the sky

A Lord so full of selfless love

He chose for man to die


Could it be He who did it all?

Who made all things appear?

Who hears and sees when children call

And dries their precious tears



Why are the worldly wise still fools?

Atheists all but free

Defying life its golden rules

Failing The Truth to see.....

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.
