 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Speaking Wisely

Not many will become teachers,
Neither will you become preachers;
But teachers will be gravely judged,
Exactly where their life been smudged.

Everyone does make mistakes,
Causing strife with starting the aches;
Some of the times when someone speaks,
Or in your search when someone seeks.

You would be perfect if not so,
Whatever do or where you go;
Everything you would control,
Including the fate of your soul.

Bits go in the mouth of a horse,
To control and remain on course;
Pulling the bridle they obey,
Staying on the path not to stray.

The same goes for lips and tongue,
How too many words have been flung;
Before you put your heart in gear,
Allowing the brain to think clear.

Praise and curse come out the same way,
Wandering words that help you stray;
Polluted words that you can clean,
If you let God to intervene.
