 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

What does the worker to gain,

Resulting from his struggles;

All the toil and pain,

The brisk schedule he juggles.


I have seen the task God gave,

So, they are kept occupied;

Leading to an early grave,

Nothing gained before they died.


But all proper in its time,

Eternity in the heart;

Living a life that they climb,

Thinking of what to impart.


I know of nothing better,

For to enjoy and rejoice;

Following to the letter,

Making it being your choice.


It is the God-given gift,

That someone would eat and drink;

Letting his efforts uplift,

With taking the time to think.


What God does lasts forever,

No adding or taken of;

Creative work as clever,

Showing compassion and love.


God works so we be in awe,

What is has already been;

For God does repeat His call,

Of what is seen or unseen.


I observed under the sun,

The judgment of wickedness;

Where righteousness has begun,

Glory shines its blessedness.


For God will judge the fiendish,

For the evil they have done;

The conceited and selfish,

Ensuring that He will shun.


We shall all return to dust,

Served purpose for the Lord;

But eternal if we trust,

Letting Him not be ignored.
