Born To Tell.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


On earth we’re called the world to tell

The fact of God on high

The facts of life the facts of hell

The fact one day we’ll die

 

That God created life on earth

The universe we see

That as a man of virgin birth

Christ Jesus came to be

 

On earth we’re born by loves request

A daughter or a son

From youth we undergo God’s test

Of how through life we’ve gone

 

O yes there is a God somewhere

Who’ll neither pull nor shove

But handles man with tender care

And with the greatest love

 

A vengeful God He too can be

To those who cheat and thieve

Murderers, rebels who hear and see

But still will not believe

 

Because of lust of wealth of fame

Of all this world can give

But soon so soon they’ll know their shame

The day they cease to live

 

Like all mankind they’ll rise one day

They’ll see and understand

So many will know the wrong way

They sought The Promised Land

 

To hell they’ll go to burn with pain

With Satan and his spore

But those with Christ born again

Will live and want no more....

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.
