Who! Or What Do You Know.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


What in the world, are you doing?                  

Where through life will you go?

Which goals are you pursuing?

Who, or what do you know?

 

Sombre questions are asked of you

Steeping you deep in thought

About your past, your future too

Your heartfelt true retort

 

Do you believe in God my friend?

Believe, in Jesus Christ

Knowing your life’s beginning and end

For you; was sacrificed

 

As Lamb and Son, on earth to die

Christ left, His royal throne

That Heaven’s love for you and I

Would melt our hearts of stone

 

Removing doubt, we would believe

All Jesus did and said

That truly life we would receive

He rose up, from the dead

 

But true allegiance is to give

For grace, for perfect health

Eternally, for man to live

Sharing all Heaven’s wealth

 

Not gold, silver or worldly fair

Which kings and queens take pride

Nought so useless would earn a prayer

Where God and saints abide

 

Far beyond one’s wildest dreams

Man’s imagination

Mass miracles, constant in streams

Will God bestow life’s nation…..

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.
