I write what I feel…




Too bad

You’re late*

He was waiting

At the gate

You weren’t there

Too busy

With life’s game

No time

To let him in

So He couldn’t

Erase your sin


This is a play on the word ‘late’.  Many people in South Africa use the word to mean ‘dead’, e.g. ‘He is late.’ meaning ‘He is dead.’

Refer:  (Revelation 3:20)

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Very clever, adee. Thoughtful poem. xxx


    • Thanks, AD! I have been receiving emails for all your comments to and from others who comment on your blog. Also some belonging to Hope. None from others though which makes me think it is only recent ex News 24 bloggers. I hope ‘they’ (WP) sort it out soon.


  2. This one really brings it home, Denise. Blessings – Maxi


  3. This may be brilliant…
    Good for you!


  4. Now that is one fantastic piece of writing….so true to many who do not know The Lord and do not realise what they are missing! Bless you!


  5. Timing is everything in life….And beyond I guess..


  6. Simple but profound. How often we give precedence to trivial things, neglecting the ones of vital importance.


  7. oo there are some things you dont want to be late for….this is one of them….too busy, yep that happens to some…


  8. *Gulp* I’m LATE for this post…yikes! LOL


  9. Very thought-provoking!


  10. Jesus’s door is always open. It is ours that may remain closed. His offering is not a command either. It is an invitation. Heard an interesting twist on meaning of Garden of Eden story. It is man that kicked God out of the Garden not vice versa. Makes sense. We’re the ones that do the door closing.


    • I was just pointing out how easy it is to neglect the important things in life, Carl. The Garden theory, I agree, does make sense. We have His assurance that he will forgive us ANYTHING we truly regret so he could NEVER shut us out – it is we ourselves who shut the door. Thanks for your comment/reply and God bless you.
