My Conversion
by Robert K. Johnson 

        óinspired by a Jonathan Edwards sermon

I reach the words
by Edwards that declare
Godís pitiless feet
will crush out

a sinnerís blood
and make it fly,
and for the first time
in my life

               I feel
the presence of God
óas real to me now
as I am at my worst.
