 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


If anyone is blameless,

The husband of one wife;

God certainly to bless,

Believers with their life.


For you must be blameless,

As a steward of God;

Wrongful times must confess,

To cleanse where you are flawed.


You must not be boastful,

Or be drunk on strong drink;

But always be cheerful,

Godly in what you think.


Lover of discipline,

Be righteous and holy;

Hating all kinds of sin,

Seeking the Lord only.


Hold fast to the Gospel,

Be faithful to the Word;

Spreading it to people,

Ensuring it is heard.


Many are unruly,

With poor attitude;

In being unholy,

As arrogantly rude.


For they must be silenced,

In such deceptive talk;

Some not be influenced,

The direction they walk.


A prophet of their own,

The Cretans are liars;

Evil beasts that condone,

In lighting the fires.


Testimony is true,

And must sharply condemn;

So not to infect you,

And not believing them.


So old Jewish fables,

Turn away from the truth;

Harness them with cables,

Not to become uncouth.


To the pure things are pure,

Not to be defiled;

Confession is the cure,

To be tender and mild.
