Follow the lamb
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

     Follow the lamb

A Shepherd raised a flock of sheep

Tending them day and night

His love for them is true and deep

And keeps them each in sight


Upon the hill to each He’ll call

Through vales His voice is heard

To goats it makes no sense at all

But sheep heed every word


Milling around some push and shove

Some run from place to place

By some The Shepherd’s call in love

Is thrown back in His face


Such wayward sheep are easy pray

A quarry light to steal

The wolf that stalks them night and day

Will often have his meal


The wolf is always on the prowl

His mouth is ever wide

Though foolish sheep hear his growl

They seek no place to hide


To lead them back to pastures green

A ewe, was raised on earth

No ram this ewe had ever seen

Yet to a Lamb gave birth


The Lamb suffered amidst the sheep

Then died to set them free

But rose again from death to leap

Alive for all to see


Once more is heard His guiding voice

Right here, right now, today

We all as sheep must make a choice

Follow the Lamb, or stray?!!.....

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.
