Seeking a Place
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

††††† Seeking a place

ďIt matters not what people say

With me thereís nothing wrong

My health is fine my lifeís okay

Iím never down for long

I stand-alone and always will

In man I place no trust

Iím here to live to get my fill

Before I turn to dust

For what Iím worth, Iíve none to thank

Iíve done it all for me!

Iím young Iím well, I owe no bank

My house is mortgage free

I have a bible in my room

Itís still wrapped up as new

Iíve heard itís full of death and gloom

And all about the Jew

Iíve been to church but found it cold

I came out feeling sad

The songs they sang were all so old

Not one to make me glad

There, no one seems to love or care

Theyíre waiting there to die

If thatís the stuff they sell in there

Itís nothing I would buy

Iíve heard of other churches though

With joy they sing and dance

Now thereís a place perhaps Iíll go

If I would have the chance

Like you Iíd share my personal view

Like you Iíd raise my hand

Like you my friend when born anew

Like you Iíll understandĒ.....

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.
