 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Where is the wise person?
Where is the scholar?
The one Heavenly Son,
Makes us appear smaller.
A persuasive speaker,
We need of our time;
One that is not weaker,
That would give in to crime.
Someone turned the wisdom,
Of the world to nonsense;
Not like in the Kingdom,
The human mind is dense.
The world with its wisdom,
Can never recognize;
The terms from His Kingdom,
Since we cannot realize.
God decided to use,
Saving those who believe;
The nonsense of Good News,
For rebirth to receive.
Jews ask for wondrous signs,
The Greeks look for wisdom;
But following the lines,
They misunderstand freedom.
Our message that Christ,
Having been crucified;
In being sacrificed,
That was undignified.
This offends all the Jews,
And it does not make sense;
In the way someone views,
A person who laments.
