 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Who has believed what we have heard,

The arm of the Lord been revealed;

As indicated in the Word,

From the truth that has been unsealed.


He grew up just like a young plant,

Like a root out of the dry ground;

No real impressive form to chant,

Or majestic royalty found.


He was despised and rejected,

A man acquainted with sorrow;

Suffering and grief reflected,

But having hope for tomorrow.


He was like people would avoid,

Being despised and not valued;

Because some people were annoyed,

From the type of His attitude.


For He had borne our sickness,

Carried our sorrow and pain;

Yet stricken esteem in quickness,

Since our sin has left a stain.


He had been pierced for our sin,

Crushed for our iniquities;

Punished for our rot within,

Curing our infirmities.


We are all like sheep gone astray,

He was punished for our fall;

Since we have gone our own way,

While ignoring of His call.


He was oppressed and afflicted,

Although was keeping His mouth shut;

On the cross He was convicted,

While being pierced in His gut.


Like a lamb led to the slaughter,

Silence from before the shearer;

When pierced flowing blood and water,

Made the death look even clearer.


Because of oppression being judged,

Humans that considered His fate;

Those that were threatened had begrudged,

Since the danger they felt was great.


He received the mighty spoils,

And submitted Himself to death;

Bearing the sin many toils,

Interceded through the last breath.
