What We Receive

I’ve danced upon a rolling sea and shed my skin like a snake,
Searched for things that never were real and tried to save a day.

Walked with heroes but never was one, however, I still felt proud,
To know the Lord, and that He still cares, although I don’t wear a crown.

I’ve whispered sweet songs to those I’d loved and danced in the rain at night,
Walked with the dead on their final day and watched them drift off into flight.

I question the wise in search of wisdom and learned a thing or two,
Yet stumbled upon the answers I’d sought, when once in a child’s small room.

I fought to find the meaning of love and fell from the edge of the roof,
Only to land on my feet once again in search of my personal truth.

I’ve traveled the world in search of a queen to find one and settle down,
To dine on grits and golden prawn where gulls they circled around.

I’ve wished on a star and gambled my gains to see that neither did pay,
But learned in prayer that hope is a gift that God grants to those in pain.

I’ve asked for and gotten, prayed for, and lost, assumed and at times was dismayed,
To find in this world nothing is known, and what we receive is through grace!

Johnny Johnstonhttp://www.blufengr-art.com/
An artist/writer as well as graduate of the University of South Carolina with degrees in journalism/20th Century American Literature, and retired senior executive of several international hotel/resort corporations, Johnny is the product of the south having been raised in the ever-changing transient lifestyle of a Carolina coastal resort. A point where he discovered, within his 300-year-old heritage and the world's dramatic social/cultural shifts during the late '60s to early 80’s an ambitious hunger and overwhelming curiosity to touch, see and become a participant in the virtually unlimited possibilities offered to those who wish for and seek life experiences. A journey which when hearing its details initially makes one a bit skeptical, questioning its validity as it is hard to imagine that incidents such as these may have crossed one man’s lifetime. This is the fodder required to step into zones exposing one's personal inner self, which many of his paintings and the words he writes do, openly. An ability to see and hear the tragic, beautiful, accomplished, exciting journey in a life free of inhibitions allowing others the opportunity to live vicariously and become, through his works, a part of its future. His larger works which have been featured in several Colorado and Fredericksburg Texas galleries and resorts have produced a number of collectors and fans. However, over the years, his paintings are mostly viewed by friends, enthusiastic new artist encountered on the streets or a small number of acquaintances he meets when dining in local cafés with his wife.
