I Hope It's Not too Late.....

I Hope It's Not too Late.....

ďIím fighting back to You my Lord

Iím trying every day

Allow me please return on board

Donít sail from me away

I need Your help Iím not too strong

This rocky mountainís steep

The journey back has been so long

Through rivers wide and deep

Gross darkness held me in itís hand

Each day a little more

Until I saw what Satan planned

And sought again Your Door

While Jesusí arms are open wide

Lifeís Door to love and grace

Allow my God again inside

This child who seeks Your face

My deeds are so that I should die

So dark that I should burn

I turn to You my God on high

Allow me please return

Chastise me here as You see right

Iíll bear all now You give

All filth within me set alight

But let this sinner live

Lord, let my prayer be not in vain

Allow me please to stay

Iíll never turn from You again

Believe what now I say

Through sleepless nights I lie awake

Not knowing of my fate

Please save me from the burning lake

I hope itís not too lateĒ.....

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.
