 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

When You are Tested

Do not turn away from the right,
If desire is in the light;
Even when faced within a test,
Just keep trying to do your best.

For all who tries to turn away,
Will be tested while you stray;
As you will thirst for desire,
For attractions you acquire.

Then desire gives birth to sin,
With time allows it to come in;
As death develops from this birth,
From the lust gathered here on earth.

Never allow yourself to be fooled,
By all those things that you have drooled;
And are spellbinding in your mind,
That have ruined all of mankind.

Get rid of perverse behavior,
And confess onto the Savior;
On everything you abuse,
Of having immoral values.

Then you can go back to your roots,
And experience the first fruits;
As you have once seen and have heard,
The everlasting living Word.
