 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Divine power gave us all,

Everything needed for life;

But for man after the fall,

We have had to cope with strife.


Godliness through His knowledge,

Called for His glory and goodness;

The Lord does acknowledge,

For a relative closeness.


By these things He has given,

Great and precious assurance;

Through love flowing from Heaven,

For coping through endurance.


So, through God that you may share,

Sharing in a divine nature;

Knowing that the Lord does care,

Making us a new creature.


Escape from the corruption,

Caused by evil desires;

Makes a divine disruption,

For lighting sinful fires.


So, make every effort,

Supplement goodness and grace;

For having peace and comfort,

By feeling of His embrace.


Have knowledge through self-control,

Self-control with endurance;

For godliness for your soul,

His love to build confidence.


Brotherly fondness gives love,

As agape piety;

For the qualities thereof,

Reducing anxiety.


Qualities are increasing,

For keeping you as fruitful;

Through our Lord unceasing,

Since His love is bountiful.


Those who lack these things are blind,

Shortsighted from the past sin;

Having a peanut sized mind,

Because of tainting within.


I endeavor that I may,

And enabled to think back;

When expiring that day,

A bequest that I lack.
