 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Is not the fast I choose,

To break the evil chains;

Untie the yoke that glues,

For torment and pains.


Set the oppression free,

Tear off every yoke;

Clothe the naked to be,

Give your garb as a cloak.


Those who hunger give bread,

Bring the poor to your home;

Nourishing to be fed,

From the distance they roam.


Then your light will appear,

Brighter than morning dawn;

Knowing the Lord is near,

Soon evil will be gone.


Your righteousness will show,

Glory will be your guard;

Insight given to know,

Salvation your reward.


When you call on the Lord,

He speaks when you cry out;

Your request not ignored,

You should not have a doubt.


He rids the yoke on you,

Ridicule and insults;

Mockery that pursue,

From oppressive results.


Satisfy affliction,

Offer those who hunger;

Their guilt of addiction,

Confessing their anger.


In darkness your light shines,

Your night as noonday sun;

As it breaks all the vines,

Strength from the Holy One.


The Lord always leads you,

Satisfies in your land;

Strengthens as you pursue,

Rescues from sinking sand.


Like a watered garden,

Whose water never runs dry;

Protects from the harden,

Will take you up on high.
