In An Air Plain.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


 Here I am, in an aeroplane

An ocean far below

What if one’s faith is formed in vain

Would God be sad to know?

 

Would God assist us not to fall?

Would His Breath keep us high

Would He answer someone else s call?

Knowing the reason why

 

What have such doubts to do with me?

Why do I feel distressed?

Surely my thoughts are plain to see

Even if not confessed

 

I’m sorry You find me doubting

Ashamed being so wrong

My failure clearly outing

Singing a different song

 

Why my God did I fail the test

So long, I’ve done things right

Always before giving my best

Before this trying flight

 

Surely it’s testing I’m facing

Nothing, in fact, is true

Instead of myself embracing

I’m learning more from You

 

So much I need to learn still

So much I gave no thought

Until ego slipped down the hill

And pride was swiftly taught

 

My God You know Your children well

Knowing what each  can do

Training always to stay from Hell

To live forever with 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.
