Born in Sin
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


             Born in Sin

The world’s content playing her game

As though there’s nothing wrong

Concealing filth, outrageous shame

Singing a righteous song


What makes her children act this way?

Why should we play the clown?

When Truth ordained to dawn one day

Will surely bring us down


The bible says we’re born in sin

In search of love and care

Thus; change must come from deep within

God’s fellowship to share


Instead, we wear a smiling face

We camouflage our lie

We’ll act serene bursting with grace

Yet secretly we cry


Too proud to show the world outside

The loneliness apart

We seek behind a mask to hide

The facts that gnaw the heart


Our battles start within the mind

Life’s war, midst ear and ear

And though The Lord is far from blind

We show Him little fear


We’re far too lost in selfish lust

Wrapped up in worldly gain

This all to Jesus’ sheer disgust

Filling God’s heart with pain


It’s time to see our greatest need

Put self into the grave

Cut down and burn demonic weed

And pray God’s Lamb will save…..

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.
