 Welcome to My Poetry Site


You mocked - you spat - you growled abuse 

You didn't even wince at MY agony -

Or - you stood silent - indifferent -uncaring -

Staring at my shame -with no word in MY defence.

Either way - I forgave you . 

Throughout it all - I still loved you .

I did not apportion blame on you .

You see - I could see what you could never know -

I knew the end of the story -

I knew what was happening - in the unseen world .

You saw my life passing away -

I saw  your life beginning -

You only saw the moment -

And was glad it wasn't you suffering .

But - I saw eternity -

And was glad that it wasn't you suffering .

I was happy to take your place -

O Yes - make no mistake - that was your place -

It was what you deserved -

The lash - the nails - the separation from MY FATHER ..

But it doesn't have to be that way now -

You can choose-

All you have to do - is die to yourself 

Take up your cross -

And follow ME -

I have done the rest -

Because I love You .

I truly pray that whoever reads this poem who
doesn't know the saving grace of the LORD JESUS
to open their heart to HIM today - HE is waiting to 
give you abundant life - and a hope and a future 
eternally with HIM in HIS glorious Kingdom .
