 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Is there any encouragement,

Any comfort from having love;

Neglected of acknowledgement,

Of what was bestowed from above.


Participation from the Spirit,

Affection from the sympathy;

Acknowledging any merit,

Only feeling the apathy.


Complete my joy being the same,

Of the same mind and the same love;

Praise and worship His Holy name,

In full accord with God thereof.


Do not have selfish ambitions,

Conceited for personal gain;

Forget not your inhibitions,

Humility counts to restrain.


Let each of you of your own things,

Look not just to your interests;

No matter what pleasure it brings,

Like the self-centered atheists.


Please keep this always in your mind,

Which is yours as was in Jesus Christ;

Always to be humbled and kind,

Your self-interests are sacrificed.


Though He was in the form of God,

Counting equality be grasped;

That Jesus Christ was never flawed,

Unlike us having hearts that clasped.


Christ was made a servant in form,

And born in the likeness of men;

To others He had looked just norm,

No reputation had He back then.


Humbled up to death on the cross,

Exalted highly we proclaim;

The Son of God suffered the loss,

But your tongue must confess His name.


So, everyone must kneel,

As every tongue confess;

For confession of an appeal,

That the glory of God to bless.
