 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I am a captive of the Lord,

Advocating for you to live;

Showing He is loved and adored,

For His willingness to forgive.


With humility and gentleness,

And patience towards one another;

Pray to confess and He will bless,

Consider you as a brother.


Endeavor to keep unity,

Of the Spirit bonded in peace;

To enhance your ability,

For your hostility can cease.


Just one body and one Spirit,

While being called for one hope;

In order for to inherit,

Going through this life you must cope.


One baptism, one faith, one Lord,

One triune God, Father of all;

Your prayers will never be ignored,

Listen and He answers your call.


But to each one grace was given,

For measuring the gift of Christ;

As we are looking towards Heaven,

Letting not this life be enticed.


So, when He ascended on High,

He led captivity captive;

Giving gifts to men who comply,

Without a sin alternative.


The very One who descended,

In order to fulfill all things;

Is the same who has ascended,

To Heaven that righteousness brings.


He made some to be as prophets,

Some evangelists and teachers;

Some as apostles or poets,

Missionaries as out-reachers.


You are no longer a child,

Being tossed back and forth by waves;

Deceitful schemes that run wild,

Rather someone that Jesus saves,


But practice in the truth of love,

Growing up in all that Christ brings;

From Him the body grows thereof,

With harmony in all things.
