We Need to Talk
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


†††† We need to talk

Itís strange how quiet truth can be

When screaming in a wood

Yet truth can lead the blind to see

And deaf to know lifeís good

I love to talk about my Lord

I do it all the time

Both day and night, Iím never bored

I even speak in rhyme

Since Jesus came and set me free

Iíve had this urge to speak

Just now and then is not for me

But seven days a week

We need to talk an hour or two

Then maybe youíll agree

Perhaps The Truth will speak to you

And cause to talk like me

Then just like fire on the tongue

The facts of God can spread

To make the old again feel young

And stir the walking dead

The word of God is Heavenís seed

And man; the living earth

Growing to meet oneís every need

And lead to second birth

Speaking of God is like a kiss

A hug, a warm embrace

The promise of a greater bliss

When speaking face to face

The word of God is Heavenís dew

Down every route and way

Allow the bible speak to you

The Truth could make your day.....

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.
