What's Life Teaching You.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Has true love taught you Godly fear?

Is righteousness your goal?

Or like a thief will death appear?

To steal your precious soul


Will the walk you walk make God content?

Is He pleased how you sing?

What persona will you present?

Before Your Lord and King


Before life’s Judge on judgement day

When fore your peers stand

Have you chose God’s Lamb your debts to pay

And take your case in hand


When you stand before your God and men

When Judgment calls your name

Will Jesus be your Lawyer then?

To save you from the flame


Have you precious time with Jesus spent

Seeking The Lord’s advice?

Did you from your wayward sins repent?

Or throw hell’s loaded dice


Will you waste your life on wanton lust?

Take risks for selfish thrills

Will all your dreams turn into dust?

Seeing what Heaven wills


Make no mistake, your time will come

When everything is done

When countless sinners stand as dumb

Rejecting Christ God’s  Son


Will Hell reveal your way was wrong?

Screaming at hope’s decay

Regret singing misery’s song

Because of your today.....

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.
