 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

We know that if the life we live,
Here on earth ever taken down;
If God did not ever forgive,
We would constantly wear a frown.
But we still do have a fortress,
An eternal house in Heaven,
Where we can relieve all the stress,
That this corrupt world has given.
In our existence we sigh,
Since we long for that sacred home;
Having sorrow that makes us cry,
Because sin has caused us to roam.
We will put a new body on,
No longer will we be as nude;
For a new life for us will dawn,
Giving us a spiritual mood.
How vulnerable what we wear,
Feeling so naked and undressed;
The mortal existence we share,
Is causing us to feel distressed.
God has prepared us for the end,
And has given us His Spirit;
Helping us cope as we defend,
Till we get what we inherit.
So we are always confident,
As long as we are here living;
For it is very evident,
All things that God has been giving.
God has a reason and purpose,
For how we live the way we do;
Guiding with a moral compass,
Through the commands that we once knew.
Your life is not guided by sight,
Rather by faith that we follow;
That is leading us to the light,
Able in keeping us hallow.
Each one of us has to appear,
Before the judgment seat of Christ;
Where we will need to be sincere,
About the sins that has enticed.
