Opponents.....

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


We see them here see them there

How they’re down when they’re high

We see them take and watch them share

How they live when they die

 

When will they love or ever care

How will we ever know?

One’s opponents are everywhere

And standing toe to toe

 

Some have fathers some a mother

Some hate while others love

Can we cease to fight each other?

As one to rise above

 

Love is such a wonderful thing

Quite beautiful to see

Even healing when people sing

Causes foes to agree

 

If only pride would be no more

If love is on the throne

We’d see on earth a different law

Where no one casts the stone

 

For all are wrong from time to time

Sometimes; we can be right

But love can forgive every crime

Where eyes can see The Light

 

We each should cease finger pointing

Let hate be sacrificed

Seek the One with God’s anointing

The One and only Christ

 

Let true love flow let wisdom reign

Living in constant love

Walking in peace healing the pain

Through Jesus Christ above.....

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.
