 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


As iron can sharpen iron,
Will be the same for one on one;
The same in classroom or lectern,
Their wits are sharpened by the Son;
Whoever takes a fig to eat,
Must also take care of the tree;
And knowing that the taste is sweet,
Ensure loving care God will see.
Whoever protects his master,
And will always have the respect;
Honored if saved from disaster,
Would not consider to neglect.
As a face reflects in the water,
So a man reflects from the heart;
He will think of son or daughter,
After grown and then they depart.
Hell and decay in evil eyes,
They can never be satisfied;
Just as the deceit and the lies,
For not knowing the crucified.
The eyes of man do not satisfy,
The lust that is within the heart;
The rationale could ratify,
Upon the mind that did depart.
Refine silver and smelter gold,
Heat until it has been made pure;
Then from the way I have been told,
Cool it down until they do cure.
But man is tested by the praise,
That they have been giving to Him;
So man needs to be prepared always,
If it all starts to look too grim.
