 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Open your ears to what I taught,
Turn your ears to the words I speak;
They will tell you what you have sought,
And continue for what you seek.
 
I will speak in a parable,
Uttering dark sayings of old;
The past is not repairable,
Because you having been too bold.
 
Things we have heard and known about,
Things that our parents have said;
When younger having so much doubt,
Things that did not make sense instead.
 
I will not hide them from the kids,
Unto the next generation;
Remembering what God forbids,
That has been His declaration.
 
Because His power and great deeds,
The miraculous things were done;
Because everything succeeds,
From the Father and through the Son.
 
He established written teaching,
So future generations know;
Through all the ministers preaching,
For the direction they should go.
 
The next generation will find,
That all children yet to be born;
How to mature and to be kind,
In this life while they sojourn.
 
To put your trust into the Lord,
Remembering what He has done;
Let His commands be not ignored,
Rather to be in Him as one.
 
They will not be like their fathers,
Rather rebellious and stubborn;
Their feeling of this world bothers,
Disturbing how we can sojourn.
 
They cannot keep faithful to God,
Refusing to walk in His Law;
No longer to honor and laud,
As Satan grasps them with his claw.
