 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Respect Authority

Place yourself neath authority,
By those in the majority;
Of the emperor or a king,
The one who rules everything.

No matter if agree or not,
A rebellion must not be sought;
God wants you to do what is right,
But show respect rather than fight.

Live to be free but do not hide,
Behind freedom in the dark side;
Use your freedom in serving God,
Not for reasons involving fraud.

 Honor everyone with love,
In your faith that flows from above;
Show authority the respect,
Abide by them not to reject.

Obey even those as unfair,
The ones that seem as not to care,
As well as those who are so kind,
And concerned on easing your mind.

The agony seems to prolong,
When you did something that was wrong;
Endure suffering as you should,
When you did something that was good.

The Lord will be well pleased with you,
Braving the situation through;
Just as the Father called on Christ,
To suffer while sacrificed.
