 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The Word of the Lord came to me,

To open my eyes as to see;

What do you mean by a proverb,

Repeating as said in the Word.


The fathers ate some sour grapes,

While some memory escapes;

Teeth of children are set on edge,

Looks like they were hit with a sledge.


As I hear the Lord God declare,

This proverb no longer will share;

For as I live there is no chance,

For this proverb for to advance.


Behold, all souls belong to God,

Regardless of how badly flawed;

The souls of the father and son,

Souls of each and every one.


But the corrupted soul shall die,

Any souls that cheat, steal or lie;

If they do what is just and right,

They will be taken to the light.


If they eat not on the mountains,

They will drink from living fountains;

Nor look on idols with their eyes,

Wisdom from God will make them wise.


Who defiles no other wives,

Guaranteed to have fruitful lives;

Nor with women menstrual impure,

They will be righteously mature.


If you did not oppress someone,

Blessings from the Lord have begun;

If the pledge of debtors restored,

Blessings will befall from the Lord.


If you do not lie, cheat or steal,

God rewards you with a new deal;

Helping those who hunger and thirst,

Will keep their lives being the worst.


He that does not take a profit,

Loans getting an interest cut;

Withholding justice man to man,

Supporting on a godly plan.


Walk in the statutes of the Lord,

Remaining within one accord;

Keeping His rules to be active,

And able to righteously live.
