 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Is it not wisdom found,

Among aging over time;

Wisdom as insanely sound,

Wisdom learned within its prime.


Long life brings understandings,

That we learn from the mistakes;

As the takeoffs and landings,

That a fighter pilot makes.


God has power and wisdom,

Understanding and counsel;

That flows down from His Kingdom,

In your heart and mind to dwell.


By chance if He tears it down,

It can never be rebuilt;

Never to erase the frown,

No confession from the guilt.


If He imprisons a man,

There is not any escape;

Because His iron clad plan;

Keeping you caged like an ape.


If He holds back the waters,

Then the rivers will dry up;

And then your thirsty daughters,

Will have nothing in their cup.


If He would then release them,

The water destroys the land;

Causing a flood to condemn,

As spoken by His command.


With Him are strength and prudence,

Over the fake gone astray;

Persevere with confidence,

While trusting to obey.


He makes judges into fools,

Loosens the bonds of the kings;

For interpreting the rules,

Wrongly to match their own flings.


He leads the priests stripped away,

Overthrows the potentates;

Lions devours its prey,

The deceiving apostates.


He exposes the deep state,

Reveals what hides in the dark;

The shadows will seal their fate,

A torrid lake to embark.
