What Must I Do.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

I must be free I need to see

To know the source of love

Walk with the man from Galilee

Beyond the clouds above


I know He can I know He’s true

I know for me His will

But what on earth have I to do?

This craving to fulfil


Nailed and pierced upon the tree

Suffering whips and scorn

Willingly so that you and  me

Through faith may be reborn


Born through water through His blood

Through fire testing within

Teaching to live The Way we should

Eternal life to win


To win to thrive to lose no more

To reign as always planned

Receive The Keys to Heaven’s Door

And all God’s Promised Land


What must one do to have these things?

To walk devoid of strife

To fly on high with eagle wings

And have eternal life


What can one say what must one do?

What has The Lord God’s willed?

What way in life should man, pursue?

To see one’s dreams fulfilled


God says to seek to find His face

To live The Way we should

Walk in love practising grace

Revealing God is good.....

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.
