Someone Somewhere.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


How safe we feel when young when strong

As children walking blind

Content singing the devil’s song

With foolishness in mind

 

Quite innocent we think at first

Till guilt will intervene

When then one’s heart begins to thirst

For something yet unseen

 

We’ve only heard that someone’s there

Somewhat we can’t explain

Somehow somewhere must someone share

Something to ease the pain

 

We wonder how we question why

Creation came to be

No answers truly satisfy

Until we bend the knee

 

At first, we find it strangely odd

Somewhat shyly we pray

Persistently yet we find God

Will open up a way

 

The Truth was here all the time

Life’s acts clear to see

Not from a bang, not ooze or slime

But by The Lord’s decree

 

From east to west from north to south

Through Heaven's sky and earth

The order came from Jesus’ mouth

Before incarnate birth

 

No searching child will seek in vain

For such is God’s delight

Someone somewhere Christ will explain

Bestowing hearts! True sight.....

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.
