 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I rejoice in the Lord greatly,

Now at the length you have revived;

For your concern for me lately,

That is helping as my life thrived.


You were indeed concerned for me,

But had no opportunity;

With the wisdom to help me see,

The strife linked to iniquity.


Not that I am speaking of need,

For I learned how to be content;

So, I am able to succeed,

No matter of the incident.


I know how to be brought so low,

Just as knowing how to abound;

In any circumstance I know,

That a solution can be found.


I learned the secret of facing,

Of hunger, abundance and need;

Opportune times of embracing,

What to avoid and to proceed.


For I can do all things through the Lord,

Hope and faith through Him strengthens me;

As long as He is not ignored,

He gives me the insight to see.


It was so kind of you to share,

The problems and trouble in life;

By including me in your prayer,

Asking God to reduce my strife.


Notwithstanding, you have done well,

And communicate my affliction;

Knowing this body is a shell,

And waiting for its conviction.


For it is a strong belief,

Christ has already paid my price,

By confessing given relief,

Through Him and of His sacrifice.


Not that I have sought any gift,

But the fruit increased the credit;

By giving my spirit a lift,

Guaranteed what I inherit.
