Let Truth Be Ours.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Seeing sun, moon, shimmering star

Nature, modern mankind

We know there’s more than what we are

Within our sentient mind


Powers, feelings, like hate and love

Consciousness inside

Bears witness to The One above

Deceit tries hard to hide


As one can see, at each fresh dawn

As night bows low and dies

As darkness flees at true lights dawn

Awakening the wise


For curiosity opens ears

Through research, students learn

Through open eyes, wisdom appears

With diligence return


But not for those who God forsake

Who to the darkness stray

Who Satan’s ways eagerly take

Who live but for today


Who but a fool would God deny?

Life’s origin dispute

Willingly walk condemned to die

Along the devil’s route


God knows your name, as He knows mine

Wisdom is ours to take

Be wise my friend, trust Christ divine

Escape hell’s flaming lake


God’s written truth will never fade

Life’s word will life endue

My shameful debts, Christ’s death has paid

Let Jesus now save you…..

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.
