 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


He would not be like your father,

A rebellious generation;

Never stubborn or much farther,

Having stressful desperation.


A generation with crude heart,

Spirit whose unfaithful to God;

Pagan rituals to impart,

Idol worship that is a fraud.


The Ephraimite were armed with bows,

And using the flaming arrows;

But retreated as God bestows,

A condemnation of sorrows.


They did not keep His covenant,

Refusing to live by His Laws;

Not honored Him as Eminent,

Corruption filled with many flaws.


They forgot all of what He had done.

Wonderful works He has shown them;

All the battles that they had won,

But now the Lord is to condemn.


He worked wonders in their sight,

Amazing things both land and sea;

For their belief to gain the light,

Freeing them from iniquity.


He divided the sea in two,

The water stood firm like a wall;

Allowing them for getting through,

Before their foe had their downfall.


He led them with a cloud by day,

A fiery light through the night;

Showing them how they should obey,

For making the future look bright.


He caused water out of the rock,

Abundant drink to quench their thirst;

Protected them where they would walk,

But they kept putting themselves first.


Water was streaming out of the stone,

Making water flow down the rivers;

The complaints He did not condone,

Because they were unbelievers.


But all of us are His people,

We are the sheep within His pasture;

We must praise Him in His temple,

Hearing His Word from the preacher.
