 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Do you have any confidence,
Getting any comfort from love;
Have you seen any evidence,
Your relationship from above.
 
Do you have any sympathy,
Any compassion for others;
Sorrow from when they take pity,
Mishaps by sisters and brothers.
 
Fill them with joy changing their mood,
And keeping one purpose in mind;
By having the same attitude,
That Jesus did in being kind.
 
Do not show selfish ambition,
By trying to be conceited;
Have a spiritual cognition,
So darkness can be defeated.
 
Humbly think of any others,
As being better than yourself;
Helping your sisters and brothers,
Putting desires on the shelf.
 
Place any of their interests first,
Prior to any of your own;
Be sure to be quenching their thirst,
The attitude Christ would condone.
 
Although He was equal to God,
And was formed within His image;
Never any blemish or flawed,
He never did take advantage,
 
He took the form of a servant,
Becoming more like other men;
Living a life of endearment,
Till the moment they did condemn.
 
He humble Himself to obey,
Till the point of death on the cross;
Never once did He ever stray,
Or justly tried to cause the loss.
 
This was so every knee could bow,
And confess that Jesus is Lord;
Every heart and mind allow,
Never letting Him be ignored.
