 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

The Lord will never change,
And we are descendants;
As it might seem so strange,
In being dependants.
 
We have not been destroyed,
Although we turned away;
Flaws having been deployed,
Since we have gone astray.
 
But how can we return,
When a person cheats God;
How could we ever learn;
How to honor and laud.
 
Because I feel cheated,
Though I am cheating Him;
Since I feel defeated,
Which makes me feeling grim.
 
I know I did not bring,
Contributing my pay;
So a curse that would cling,
For the tithe on Sunday.
 
See if an open door,
To test me in this way;
If I walk on His shore,
After going astray.
 
Or will His blessings flood,
Delighted with the wine;
Through the flow of His blood,
In the drink from the vine.
 
I have used some harsh words,
And spoke against the Lord;
But I have starving herds,
And feel He has ignored.
 
But on that special day,
He will make possession;
As I repent my way,
Stopping my obsession.
