A Tract
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † † † † † † † A Tract

Iíve read a tract, someone had sent

Of those who die in shame

Who live to sin, who wonít repent

Whoíll end their lives in flame


If endless flame is all theyíll see

If sin has made them fall

I know right now, itís not for me

Iíll heed Salvationís call

It says, before a Judge weíll stand

Weíll reap just what weíve sown

Thus said the Lord, with upheld hand

On Heavenís mighty throne

Weíre told the judge, sent forth His Son

Who served His Father well

Though life on earth is not all fun

Heíll save our souls from hell

I think Iíll give the Son a try!

Who knows, I might well stay

If then I live, or if I die

Iíll fear no judgement day

Iíve learned both Judge and Godís the same

Iím glad Iíve heard the news

I too have turned from sin and shame

For what had I to lose?

Of God before I gave no thought

For more! Iíd always craved

But through the tract, this fish is caught

And through Godís Son, well saved

In hope of Christ, I look above

From Christ Iíll never budge

I thank my Lord for all His love

And for my righteous JudgeÖ..

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.
