 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I am just one man, who has felt,
The suffering under His wrath;
Like a Father using His belt,
When I have taken the wrong path.
But it has driven me away,
Made me walk in darkness instead;
As it caused me to go astray,
Where immoral lifestyles tread.
God beat me again all day long,
Making my flesh to waste away;
Because I have been doing wrong,
As I constantly disobey.
He has broken every bone,
Attacking me with bitterness;
All because He did not condone,
Treating others with vulgarness.
So He made me live in the dark,
Since I was forsaking others;
In the light I could not embark,
To see my sisters and brothers.
Now I was blocked from getting out,
For I am bonded with heavy chains;
Causing me to have so much doubt,
While my blood pours down the drains.
Even when I call and have cried,
God has ignored every prayer;
Because He says that I have lied,
For my true thoughts I do not share.
Like a lion stalking His prey,
As He awaits to ambush me;
For noncompliance I must pay,
Within His eyes what He does see.
Torn to pieces leaving nothing,
His bow drawn I am the target;
As He is aiming for my heart,
Which will be cancelling my debt.
I have become the laughingstock,
Every day they throw insults;
So they ridicule as they mock,
For all my transgressive results
