Have you ever been to Negative?

Have you seen his foolish pride?

Where peace and joy you went to give

Was lightly cast aside?


Did you find your smile was strange to him?

That gloom’s his faithful bride?

His house was cold, so sad so dim?

As though someone had died?


At this he’d groan, at that he’d cry

He seemed to moan at will

To light, he’s always rather shy

And to The Truth quite still


Instead of high, he’s always low

Negative, night and day

Yet positive; when saying no

When yes; he ought to say


But how can change be brought to him?

That joy may dwell inside?

Who can brighten what is dim?

Just who can turn the tide?


Who can move his heart of stone?

Dry those bitter tears?

Stop his grumble grouse and moan?

Even remove his fears?


The bible says that no one can

Except The Lord above

Nothing on earth can change a man

But faith in Heaven’s love


The faith that Christ died once for all

The love, that set man free!

The faith, Christ rose that none should fall

Through love, for you and me…..

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.
