The Standard's High.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 2 times

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


† † †The Standard's High.....

Luscious; God formed the earth and clean

Perfect for man to live

Clear Loveís handwork can be seen

Through all Heís had to give

Man at first was safe and sure

A pleasure in Godís sight

Always to live thrive and endure

Walking within the light

But what of Adamís seed today

What path does man now tread?

While Satan leads us oft astray

Till lost and walking dead

We know the devil and his wiles

We know whatís right and wrong

Yet still behind a mask of smiles

We sing his wayward song

If only more this side of hell

Could read Godís righteous mind

Thereíd be no reason now to tell

The Truth to which theyíre blind

Though worldly wisdom may be vast

Godís grace may yet be found

Within the prisons of the past

Range still so many bound

They must be free of Satanís chain

Receive lifeís guiding Light

Through Jesusí blood, be born again

And dressed, in time to fight

For Satan gathers far and wide

The final warís at hand

Where Christ alone with loyal bride

Will live & dwell Godís LandÖ..

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.
