 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Whoever lives in a safe place,

The secret place of the Most High;

Dwells in the shadow of His grace,

Secured where He does sanctify.


God is my refuge and fortress,

In the Lord to whom I do trust;

A shelter He will surely bless,

Secluding me from all the lust.


He delivers me from the net,

The snare of the destructive blight;

Diseases shielding not to get,

Cured by shining His sacred light.


He will cover you with feathers,

Taking refuge under His wing;

From the thunder storm that weathers,

For peace of mind that He will bring.


Fear not the terror of the night,

The gun shots flying in the day;

Nor the plague that lusts with delight,

Waits for you in going astray.


A thousand may fall at your side,

Ten thousand upon your right hand;

Chances are they did not abide,

Following what God did command.


You will only see with your eyes,

Witness punishing the sinful;

Able to see through their disguise,

Reasons they are so disgraceful.


Because you are making the Lord,

Your refuge in His dwelling place;

Never let Him to be ignored,

Or you just might fall from His grace.


He will put His angels in charge,

Protecting you in all your ways;

Tasking regardless small or large,

Throughout all of your nights and days.


They will support you with their hands,

So, you will not trip or stumble;

Assisting through daily demands,

Pulling you out of the rubble.


I will please Him with a long life,

Proving to Him my salvation;

Living to endure all the strife,

That is building my foundation.
