Equal to Live...

          Equal to Live.....

So oft it's hard to stand alone

To walk the path of life

So God from Adam took a bone

And made for him a wife

 

To help Adam, The Lord gave Eve

Equal, on earth to reign

Neither should slight, neither should grieve

Nor cause the other pain

 

Was this an error, made of God?

Was this some foolish dream?

Not few today would think it odd

That man should reign supreme

 

Both man and wife believe they're lord

Instead of David's Root

Seldom pulling in one accord

To bear their union fruit

 

Pulling each other left and right

Pushing each other down

Till harmony is out of sight

Till discord wears a crown

 

Divorce grows rife in every land

Children cry much alone

Where neither side will understand

Where hearts have grown as stone

 

The evidence we all can see

The cross revealed so plain

If selfish pride will bend its knee

True peace can reign again

 

Let harmony be man's delight

Let love, guide groom and bride

Let man truly with God unite

Before death's great divide.....

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.
