Try Forgiveness.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Does forgiveness accompany you

Constant follow around

Hindering, spoiling life’s view

Contentment can’t be found


Who can be right, who be found wrong?

What causes hate to rise

Who, what, or which, should not belong?

Life or soul to despise


Is not Salvation Heaven’s Plan?

Revealing perfect Love?

Consider ever hating man?

Obstructing Life above?                           


Forgiveness, mercy, lenience

Who on earth is not weak

Above, far beyond convenience

Is not God’s pardon you seek?


You know yourself, how wrong you are

How devils have deceived

Knowing God’s Grace, each selfish scar

What or not, you’ve achieved


Does not the Bible show The Way?

Jesus, Life’s Key, Life’s Door

Feeding His sheep, calling who stray

Forgiving who’ve failed before


Overcome true Love’s obstruction

Hate can do so much wrong

Hinder Salvation’s construction

Sinners, from singing Life’s Song


Forgive, forgive, be careful of hate

Forgive, as God does you!

Let Love help to procrastinate

Witness what Love can do…..

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.
