 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Better to be unimportant,
As you are possessing a slave;
Than as famous and discontent,
With having one foot in the grave.
A righteous man cares about life,
Protects animals in his care;
Never cruel and giving them strife,
While always willing to share.
Whoever helps to work his land,
Will always have plenty to eat;
And there to lend a helping hand,
Never trying to steal or cheat.
The ones who chases unreal dreams,
Will never use his commonsense;
Does not understand as it seems,
Why he would need a good defense.
For your character fully counts,
More importantly than money;
Your financial status amounts,
Valued less than milk and honey.
The roots of the righteous people,
Always produce delicious fruits;
Because their faith in the Gospel,
Have been growing very deep roots.
Evil is trapped in sinful talk,
Always getting them in trouble;
And easily trip as they walk,
From the complaints as they grumble.
You are enjoying very good things,
Because of diligent hard work;
But to the slothful fool life brings,
To the place where the vultures lurk.
A truthful man speaks honestly,
But a lying man speaks deceit;
Since the Lord is judging justly,
The lying man will see defeat.
Careless words stab will like a sword,
But truthful words last forever;
For the wise speak words of the Lord,
That will not falter or sever.
