Which Of The Two - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Each day outside a man’s locked doors
He begged within the dust
Though dogs would lick his many soars
Yet in His God he’d trust

Although the man could see him there
Although his need was plain
Though rich and had so much to share
The beggar begged in vain

Which of the two are you today?
Which of the two am I?
What will God’s judgement have to say?
Beyond the day we die

Unlike a fool who’ll laugh and scoff
Seek wisdom whilst you may
For even dogs are better off
Tending to man’s decay

The beggar man rose to life anew
The rich to God’s disgust
Perhaps we need to change our view
And seek in whom to trust

To Christ alone would wisdom turn
In Him we’re surely blessed
But foolish souls will surely burn
Without a moment’s rest

Our doors we need to open wide
Serve others bread and wine
Accept The Holy Ghost inside
Through Christ God’s Lamb divine

The bible’s real and always true
And Christ’s on Heaven’s throne
Perhaps He’s speaking now to you
To melt your heart of stone
