 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


You were dead for failure and sin,

You followed the ways of this place;

Leaving you decaying within,

Its ruler had given his grace.


This ruler continues to work,

On people who disobey God;

Most of whom acting like a jerk,

As they continue to be flawed.


Every one of us has known,

Lived among these kinds of people;

And through all their action as shown,

Not venturing to the temple.


They just follow their desires,

Derived from a corrupt nature;

But this action never acquires,

The free gift as a new creature.


We do what desire and thought,

Corruption would want us to do;

The darkness guides to what we sought,

No matter what we may construe.


So because of our nature,

Then we deserve the wrath of God;

Not becoming a new creature,

Since we are decaying where flawed.


But God rich in mercy and grace,

Because of having a great love;

Ready to forgive and embrace,

Each of us from His throne above.


We were dead because of failure,

But made us once again alive;

Along with Christ our Savior,

And expected soon to arrive.


We have a place God has given,

His generosity through Christ;

A position up in Heaven,

A gift through being sacrificed.


Through faith as an act of kindness,

Not a result what you have done;

Restoring sight from your blindness,

That the Father gave through His Son.
