Cooling Down.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

When angry, take care not to sin

Let wisdom cause to rest

Let not the devil rule within

Beware of every test


Let feelings, not exasperate

Anger, not harm the meek

Nor flood your soul, with sinful hate

To make life’s standing, weak  


Compose yourself, seek Heaven’s King

Let calmness, gain control

Resist, the devil’s song to sing

That harms an angry soul


Raise up your eyes from fury’s cloud

Soften your hardened voice

Tone down your weakness shouting loud

Let peace become your choice


Cool down, cool down, grant rage no part

Let Heaven have its will

Let tranquillity in your heart

And with God’s blessings fill


Softly, softly, let love unwind

The pressure coiling inside

Let love, enter and soothe your mind

To turn the raging tide


Just simmer down take care and choose

To breathe a little while

Quietly, discussing your views

Allow your heart to smile


Slowly reach out an up palmed hand

Try first, to make the start

Cause all concerned, to understand

The gesture of your heart…..

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.
