WALKING IN THE DARK

A darkness one could really feel!

Looked up no stars out there!

Hand close to my face cannot see it!

Sightless, like, I am nowhere!

.

.

Age 20 I had left hometown,

Gravel road crunched below!

Feet instinctively felt for grass

Beside the road should grow!

.

.

Treading carefully soon it was found!

I wondered what lay ahead?

Inching along considering that

“This is like being dead!”

.

.

Or blind, at least, how to figure!

Like, I prayed finally

Moved along like being pushed,

Oh, so glad Grace is free!

.

.

Suddenly white faintly ahead!

A church quite possibly!

Eyes fixed on that brightness up there,

Moved along confidently!

.

.

From Ohio to Kansas City,

Out on that pitch black road.

I had been trying to get away,

Far away from my God!

.

.

Complete the darkness that day Jesus died!

It struck, like, middle of the day!

Priests terrified!  Angels bemoaning,

Not the happiest day!

.

.

Must the Christ put up with this?

An angel asks another,

‘Killing God’s son!’  Shook his head,

Well, Cain killed his brother.

.

.

Stop!  This is GOD!  These are Priests,

Just how can one comprehend?

Assuming sin’s penalty now

Against sin to contend!

.

.

“Wages of sin is death!”  God decreed!

Then God took it on Himself!

Can we make a God like this to

Place up on a shelf?

.

.

Our God lives!  Died but arose!

Forgave our sins the result!

Sins loss, GOD Himself assumed!

Will not find this in no cult!

.

.

Cannot put this story on canvas,

To large for any pics!

God gave Himself to die for me!

Cultists all fiddle-sticks!

.

.

“Meroni,” “I Am,” what have you,

“Mormon,” all pacing in the dark!

Then, see that light?  The perfect church!

Jesus alone my mark!

.

.

I did find my way much later!

Then my God took care of me!

Same God trudged through blackest night!

Gave it all on Calvary!
