Must Tears Always Flow?.....

†† Must Tears Always Flow?.....

Though peace and joy should be my song

Though love should be my guide

Yet when it seems my life is wrong

I fail to look inside

I fail to ask the reason why

To question when or how

Though God they say can see my lie

I have no thought to bow

IĎll find excuses by the score

From truth Iíll run for miles

Iíll seek to cover every flaw

Behind a mask of smiles

But then when darkness floods the night

When thoughts flow wild in streams

When shadows flutter in the light

The world should hear my screams

What happens on the day I die?

Is hell is Heaven real?

Is all the world confused as I?

And feels as I now feel

I see deathís hand, I see the grave

I feel the sweat pearls flow

If only Christ was real to save

If Godís alive to know

Are You there Lord, is Jesus true?

Can sinners find Your grace

Can one have faith have hope in You?

One day to see your face

Is hell the only place Iíll go?

Is Heavens door shut tight?

Have all my tears to always flow?

Will You not end my plight?.....

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.
