God made mankind,  to live as He

To live, never to die

With living' breath, complete and free

To dwell with Him on high

 

Eden, was Heaven, man testing

Living to lose or win

Life, to make more,  interesting

The devil concocted sin

 

Invisible, demonic forces

Infiltrating one's mind

Using satanic resources

Devils would fool mankind

 

Where sin continues, shame will abound

Deceived, man often bows

Bending truth, prolific profound

Where consciousness allows

 

Life's route to Heaven cause to hell

 

Producing outrageous wars

Where walking foul where living well

Depends on open doors

 

Options are given everywhere

For one to leave or take

If love or hate, to keep or share

What choice we choose to make

 

Is God not awesome, amazingly deep

Overwhelming profound

Depending where what, company we keep

Will one's decision be sound

 

This! is the quandary, dilemma, we're in                 

Will one end up with a smile

With sin's pleasures lost what next will life win

Will life or dearth be worthwhile.....

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.
