The Dirty Old Man...

The Dirty Old Man...
I once knew of a dirty old man.
His way of living—I didn't understand.
To the altar, many times he cried.
You wouldn't believe the things he tried.
His involvement with sex became an addiction.
He began to raise quite a suspicion.
His wife he once loved
 was now despised.
I can still see the tears in her eyes.
What's happened to my husband?”she asked.
After she caught him in
  shameful acts.
He became so confused,
not knowing where to turn.
As the sin in his heart daily burned.
At church... he was one you
could no longer find.
As God gave him over to a reprobate mind.
The details in his life
 began to unfold.
Even beyond the age I would call “old.”
I often wonder what was uttered
in his last breath.
As his lustful life brought
 an early death.
May you seek to live a Godly life.
—in God love—as husband and wife!
Run from temptation's evil grasp.
Enjoy a Godly love with will forever last.
His love will do what no other love can.
It will help you to be a Godly man!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
