About the poet

John Bowlin started writing poetry several years ago. He was laid off from his construction job and the poetry started flowing.

I say to you, if you can’t face another man, and you have to run and hide,

How can you ever face our creator with a weak man’s pride!

You can’t, because all you’ve ever done was lie.

So remember, the gates of Heaven are narrow, not wide!

Because one day God will open your eye

And you will see all you’ve been living is one big lie!

And you will feel unworthy of life and just want to die!

So I say to you, stop and think!

The revelation is coming,

Don’t wait till the brink!

Because in God’s eyes, our life is but a blink!

So let’s get up off the dirt and all the stink!

And live life the way God has planned,

Because it’s not our option, it’s His command!

So open your mind and take a stand.

Live a good life,

And all the evil God will reprimand!

Because He has control of our every breath!

It’s not hard to figure out,

You want life after death?

These words are for you.

You can take them to heart!

You don’t need no schooling,

You don’t have to be smart!

To know God’s always there,

He’s been there from the start!

So keep God’s love and He will never part!

So I say to you, live your life!

And rid yourself of the worldly ways of strife!
