 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


At one time you were once dead,
Because of sins and failure;
But what you needed instead,
The blessing of a Savior.
You followed the ways of here,
This world having a fooler;
Clinging to things you hold dear,
From a fictitious ruler.
So he continues to work,
Those refusing to obey;
So you think God is a jerk,
Not a problem for to stray.
All are living amongst them,
Having a corrupt nature;
Not knowing God will condemn,
Instead of a new creature.
For their corrupt desires,
Control what they want to do;
The pleasure it acquires,
With the thoughts that are not true.
Because of our nature,
We deserve anger from God;
The judge and legislature,
That causes you to be flawed.
God with His mercy and grace,
Because of His massive love;
Always willing to embrace,
Sending blessings from above.
We were dead from the failure,
But are alive now through Christ;
The Son of God and Savior,
On the cross was sacrificed.
God has brought us back to life,
Together with Jesus Christ;
Helping us to cope through strife,
And avoid getting enticed.
God made us for what we are,
Created us in His image;
For being a shining star,
Upon the heavenly stage.
