Redemption's Kiss
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

     Redemption’s kiss

The world revolves thinking she’s free

She’s strong, rich and wise

Confused in tangled history

She’s fooled by Satan’s lies


Blind to the devil cloaked in light

Bemused to right and wrong

She cheats by day whoring by night

Singing the devil’s song


Religion’s all but free of choice

Man’s future looks so bleak

Selfishness reigns, countries rejoice

Oppressing old and weak


Of God the world has grown so cold

Few of her children pray

Seductive, dancing, flaunting bold

While Satan’s tune they play


In body, soul, the devil’s bride

Fear of God long gone

Preferring Satan as her guide

Rejecting Christ God’s Son


For all redemption’s close at hand

Salvation’s all so plain

If she’d but turn and understand

Devils struggle in vain


But self conceit has made her blind

A fool to Satan’s woo

Whispering constant to her mind

He tells her what to do


Yet if her lover, she’d resist

How demons swift would flee

When then The Truth this world has kissed

Her children will be free......

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.
