On Hopeful Knees.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

My God my God what have I done?

Again I’ve gone astray

Although I try to serve Your Son

I fail most every day


 I’m slipping sliding all the time

Abhorrent in Your sight

As if I’m prone to any crime

And prowlers in the night


I know my God I’ve done You wrong

I’ve done my neighbours ill

Singing again the devil’s song

And dancing to his will


I’ve heard him laugh I’ve seen his smile

Within his lustful arms

Slipping a yard falling a mile

A victim to his charms


Not lightly do I come, my Lord

Nor flippant do I plea

Allow once more life’s perfect Way

My foolish eyes to see


Humbly in faith to You, I kneel

In hope, I turn once more

Knowing my heart the way I feel

Lord, please don’t close Your Door


Please shine again Salvation’s Light

Rekindle Heaven’s Fire

Renew my strength my will to fight

Make Christ my soul desire


Quicken the will that once was there

Let love within run true

Hear my cry please hear my prayer

These things I ask of You.....

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.
