 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Guard your steps going to His house,

To draw near to listen better;

When you go worship with your spouse,

Laudation of Him together.


Offer not sacrifice of fools,

They know not that they do evil;

Be not rash obeying His rules,

Which is favoring the devil.


Do not be too hasty to speak,

Nor impulsive speech from the heart;

For God is in Heaven to seek,

And let only His Word impart.


With so much business comes a dream,

Many words will come from a fool;

Action from promises that seem,

The Word negates to ridicule.


When you make a vow to the Lord,

Delay not in fulfilling it;

And you will never be ignored,

Rewarded what you inherit.


It is best that you do not vow,

Promise not what you cannot pay;

Kneel and pray after you do bow,

Just keep trusting as you obey.


Do not allow your mouth bring guilt,

Before saying it was your fault;

Because that is how sin is built,

Not confessed before you exalt.


Why should God anger at your voice?

To destroy the work of your hands;

When having to make the wrong choice,

Not abiding within His commands.


For when dreams increase as words grow,

God is still the one you must fear;

Your thoughts and actions He will know,

So, you have to humbly revere.


The violation of justice,

Or the oppression of the poor;

Be not amazed of malpractice,

From the deep state within the core.
