Which To Choose.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

You have a Bible in your room

A widescreen TV too

Which to while away your gloom

Would you daily choose to view?


Don’t think to cheat or tell a lie

Allow wisdom guide you

God always keeps an open eye

On everything we do


Allow wisdom raise its voice

If endless life you seek

Let understanding be your choice

All seven days a week


In both, we see things right and wrong

In both are things to learn

In both is taught a different song

Which causes, much concern


In both we laugh in both we cry

Fill broken hearts with cheer

How man should live how best to die

And how to deal with fear


While both, upon a shelf can fit

Both could change our views

While both can entertain with wit

Which, is better to choose


Which of them serves us best today?

If both when understood

Will teach to walk live life the way

One’s conscience sees as good


Let only one accompany you

As constant guide and friend

If truth and wisdom, you pursue

Until life’s very end......

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.
