 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Instead Love

You were indeed called to be free,
So that you are able to be;
Kin of the heavenly Father,
With Jesus Christ as your Brother.

Do not attempt it as an abuse,
Or making it as an excuse;
To have a corrupted nature,
After made as a new creature.

Rather serve each other with love,
From what flows down from above;
All of that which Moses had taught,
Is summarized what you have sought.

Love your neighbor as you love you,
Telling everything by being true;
Do not spread any pack of lies,
Rather the truth can make you wise.

Do not criticize or attack,
Nor to stab someone in the back;
Be careful never to destroy,
Relationships that you employ.

Live your life as a new creature,
Being in a spiritual nature;
Then you will not let desire,
Corrupt your spiritual fire.

Never attempt to let your lust,
To consider ruling your trust;
Do not mix your wants with your needs,
And find yourself in dirty deeds.

Let the Spirit to be your guide,
In all the laws that you abide;
Remember to stay in the light,
And always doing what is right.
