I'm Roman Catholic
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


        I’m Roman Catholic

“We’ve called to have a chat with you

God’s word we’d love to bring

Perhaps you’ll share your point of view

Of Christ as Lord and King”


We’re Roman Catholic! We’re all right

We’re part of Heaven’s few

But those next door, I think they; might

Be pleased to hear from you”


“No please my friend, don’t close your door

We’ve news for you today

Please give us but a moment more

Perhaps a time to pray”


“I can’t pray now to my regret

I have no time you see

But go next door, cast there your net

They need you more than me”


“But neighbour it’s we; who live next door

We’re here because we care

Please give us but a moment more

Our faith with you to share


We must be born again my friend

The Bible makes it clear

Christ said we’ll live, we’ll see no end

And need of hell no fear


Alone in Christ we place our hope

For man can lead us wrong

We all must die, as must the Pope

Before we sing life’s song


Unless we heed Christ’s true report

Festooned in shame we’ll die

For all have sinned and fallen short

Catholics my friend and I.....

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.
