They Seek Him Here

They Seek Him Here


They seek Him here they seek Him there

They seek Him more and more

For truth they’re seeking everywhere

Yet fail to find The Door


The Door to life may not be smart

Not stout not wide, or high

May turn one’s mind tear people apart

And cause to pass it by


To seek a place to suit one’s taste

A pleasure to the eye

But without Truth, their time they’ll waste

Till just like fools they die


Others believe they have it made

They’ve gone an extra mile

Yet Spirit void, they wilt and fade

Wearing in church a smile


Religion’s spread through every land

Doctrine, take pride of place

Through works, they think to understand

But God still hides His face


For Jesus died to set us free

Portrayed in life’s great book

Wherein The Door is plain to see

If one would only look


A strong delusion! God will give

To those who Christ refuse

Although through deeds they hope to live

Their lives they’ll surely lose


Religion cannot rise above

However much we try

Life’s Door is grace, life’s Way is love

Through Jesus Christ on high.....

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.
