Life's Cross Shaped Crook.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

The world still on its self-same path

Revolving soaked in shame

Plagued and selfish she’ll face God’s wrath

Denying Jesus’ name


Through evidence so magnified

Parchments of ancient days

We see Christ came as God’s Lamb died

Revealing Heaven’s Ways


The Way of Truth of endless Life

Remains alone God’s Son

Jesus alone will end man’s strife

And victory truly won


Victory against man’s ancient foe

Since God gave Adam birth

Through Satan’s seed, hate had to sow

The Father cursed the earth


Till Jesus came and paid the debt

The price of all man’s sin

To all on earth willing to let

Salvation to begin


One needs to read The Father’s Book

By faith from front to rear

See wisdom’s love, life’s cross-shaped crook

And consequently, fear


Fear the power of Heaven’s King

Life’s end and certain hell

What personal sin and shame will bring

That Judgement knows so well


God reigns before all time and space

Nothing escapes His view

One must repent, pray God for grace

And life through birth anew…..

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.
