 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I am sure that I know,
Jesus if we obey;
Laud and honor to show,
With love every day.
If I say I know Him,
But I do not obey;
Then my life would be grim,
Since I constantly stray.
The truth is not within,
If I live in the dark;
Life in a world of sin,
Wherever I embark.
But if I obey Christ,
Having His kind of love;
Vowed to be sacrificed,
Devoted to thereof.
That is how we will know,
That we do follow Christ;
And in the light we go,
No longer be enticed.
Those who say that we live,
Then must live the same way;
Helping others and forgive,
Being truthful what we say.
It is a truth that exists,
In both Christ and in you;
When you tell it persists,
Shining brightly as true,
For as the darkness fades,
The radiance shines through;
Because true light persuades,
That truth is overdue.
Those who walk in the light,
Will love other people;
With wisdom and insight,
Believing the Gospel.
Living in the dark of night,
You have no direction;
For being blind to the sight,
Of a bright perfection.
