 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Forget not what you were taught,

Keep all commandments in mind;

They help in what you have sought,

That you are able to find.


The length of days through your life,

Helps to live long through the years;

Promoting peace through the strife,

And calming down all your fears.


Do not let mercy and truth,

Your kindness ever forsake;

It makes you rude and uncouth,

Causing other hearts to break.


Fasten them around your neck,

Engrave them within your heart;

Periodically check,

Remembering to impart.


Find favor and much success,

With a good understanding;

Ensuring that God will bless,

Dwelling in His commanding.


Trust the Lord with all your heart,

Entrusting not on your own;

Lean on God to help you start,

Through prayer for making it known.


Through each day acknowledge Him.

He will make your path real smooth;

Giving you vigor and vim,

To keep running in the groove.


Think not of yourself as wise,

Deviate from all evil;

Darkness will wear a disguise,

Its master is the devil.


God will keep your body healed,

Muscles and bones well nourished;

Your harvest an ample yield,

All of your crops have flourished.


Honor the Lord with your wealth,

Tithing the cream of the crop;

He rewards you with good health,

For the first fruits off the top.
