 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

No longer live of this place,

Rather insist in the Lord;

Vain living is a disgrace,

Whenever God is ignored.

 

Darkened from understanding,

Alienated from His life;

Ignorance is demanding,

More through the toils and strife.

 

Not tolerant of others,

For the hardness of the heart;

The wickedness that smothers,

Any goodness to impart.

 

You reflect indecency,

Practicing immoral ways;

All kinds of impurity,

With the greediness that strays.

 

You did not learn about Christ,

But was being taught the truth;

Not for becoming enticed,

Nor being rude or uncouth.

 

You were taught your former way,

To lay aside the old man;

For a new life and new day,

In sync with God and His plan.

 

A renewed spirit in mind,

Putting a new man in place;

One that is humbled and kind,

A willingness to embrace.

 

From the truth comes righteousness,

Holiness defeats falsehood;

God willing to shed gracefulness,

With love that is understood.

 

Be angry but do not sin,

After the sun has gone down;

No matter to what had been,

Go not to bed with a frown.

 

Show compassion and forgive,

Just as God in Christ forgave;

In harmony for to live,

Through salvation that will save.
