Looking On.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


The world looks on in blind denial

Believing man’s alone

Though devils smile a little while

The Lord God’s on life’s throne

 

The wisest fooled, can’t understand

Where sin yet flows in streams

Almighty is God’s strong right hand

More than man’s wildest dreams

 

None can gauge the power of Christ

Creator of all things

Life’s clout; when He was sacrificed

Returned as if on wings

 

Fools may live, like devils in hell

Deceived, deaf, stumbling blind

Driven, by selfish lust to quell

Polluting fooled mankind

 

We see them prostrate on the street

In vomit, stained with blood

Looking at death waiting to greet

The one who means no good

 

Death; is a curse for disobedience

For selfishness of sin

Resulting through wild expedience

Displayed since man’s begin

 

But who will hear who’ll obey?

Who in the world has learned?

That Heaven’s King demands today

So life may be returned

 

Stop looking on in confusion

Forsake your shameful way

Hinder demonic intrusion

Seek Jesus’ face today…..

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.
