 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I write for your generation;

A people that will praise the Lord;

Understanding His salvation,

If you remain in one accord.


He looked down from Heaven above,

The Lord gazed out upon the earth;

Allowing the flowing of love,

Because of knowing its true worth.


He hears the groans of prisoners,

In having been condemned to die;

While looking for pardoners,

And continue to wonder why.


As they continue to declare,

The name of Yahweh in Zion;

Praising from his cell during prayer,

To come as a roaring lion.


When people assemble to serve,

And kingdoms abide in the Lord;

God rewards what they do deserve,

When the Father is not ignored.


He has broken my strength in midcourse.

He shortened the length of my days;

And cutting me off at the source,

Detours me from the path that strays.


Do not take me within my prime,

Being the middle of my life;

Forgive me of continued crime,

Through all generations of strife.


Long ago He established earth,

And the Heavens within His hands;

Giving each creature a new birth,

Initiated what He planned.


We will perish but He endures,

We wear out clothing we have worn;

We are laid to rest when matures,

Our offspring replace when born.


But the Lord will remain the same,

His time will never terminate;

New generations may proclaim,

But the old ones will sleep and wait.


His children will dwell securely,

As the seed will be implanted;

As the servants they will surely,

For salvation to be granted
