Point man by Mike Harris

Hello All,

Something caused me to look this poem up this morning. I wrote it around the time I start the Outpost here in Coos Bay, Oregon. Feel free to share it:




Walkin Point was a risky place.

Sixteen on auto, ready to fire.

Might see Charlie, face to face.

Always watchin, where’s that wire?

Skin whether black, brown or white.

Don’t mean nuthin, in no man’s land.

The long green line, followed til night.

Dependin on you, to deal their hand.

Point Man, Point Man, where are you?

I’ve been lost, these last few years.

Broken and bitter, depressed and blue.

It’s even come, to shedding some tears.

Who’s this Jesus, up on the trail?

I want to follow, it seems a must!

Upon the cross, He did travail?

He walked Point, so I could trust?

Oh Glory Be! I'm beginning to see.

I’m made alive, His oil can anoint.

It’s hard to believe, He has chosen me!

Now He’s asking me, to walk the Point.

Come along Brothers, there’s healing and peace.

Many, many years, you've had to cope.

Your rucksacks are heavy, you need to release.

Give Him your burdens, He is your hope!

Let’s march together, down a different road.

We’re on the Point, only by His Grace.

Just ask Him in, He’ll carry your load.

Giving you strength, to start a new race.

Michael A. Harris - 1989



Only By HIS Mighty Grace,
