There Is a Way.....

There Is A Way

 

Ever felt lost desperate and sad

Feeling to scream and cry

That while the world is going mad

You want to stop and die

 

Have you thought about the consequence?

What happens when you’re gone?

If there was a way of recommence

Of changing things you’ve done

 

There is a way a wondrous Way

A Way absolving fears

To live to never see decay

Beyond this world of tears

 

That Way for all is free today

A road to constant peace

One only needs to kneel and pray

For all life’s doubts to cease

 

Of course there may be troubles yet

Quandaries for still a while

But soon when strong we’ll swift forget

What caused the belly bile

 

It may sound silly quite absurd

Perhaps a pack of lies

A fairy tale a story heard

Where no one ever dies

 

But someone’s paid the price my friend

Though many think it odd

Yet be as me and life won’t end

Through Christ The Lamb of God

 

There is a God! The Bible’s true

Have faith in Him and trust

Our Father has a place for you!

When all else turns to dust.....

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.
