 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Wise Living

The fear of the Lord is knowing,
The direction you are going;
And you will be finding your way,
Without having to go astray.

To love wisdom and discipline,
Means that you are not lured by sin;
Not like stubborn fools who despise,
People that are noble and wise.

If you know what your mother taught,
Then your quests will be wisely sought;
And remembering discipline,
Whence that your father had given.

For the precepts are just a way,
In showing you how not to stray;
Keeping you as sharp as a tack,
And you remain on the right track.

Fools and sinners will try to lure,
By taking you through the wrong door;
Coerce you in an evil deed,
For planting a corrupted seed.

You will be swallowed up in a grave,
Because to sin you stay a slave;
And after you had been enticed,
You never did by chance know Christ.
