 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


No doubt you are the people,

That wisdom will die with you;

But the words in the Gospel,

Will live on and continue.


But I also have a mind,

And am not inferior;

As being humbled and kind,

And God is superior.


So, what do you talk about,

Of being a laughingstock;

By calling God having doubt,

Through prayer in having a talk.


The righteous and upright man,

A laughingstock to the world;

Because a travesty can,

While insults will be hurled.


If anyone is at ease,

Holds tragedy in contempt;

Thinks he is prepared to please,

Slipping feet make an attempt.


The tents of robbers are sound,

Who provokes God is secure;

In time their minds will confound,

Temptation causes a lure.


The power of God provides,

Ask animals to instruct;

A bird in the sky abides,

Obedient in conduct.


So, ask the beasts who will teach,

They will tell you and inform;

Speak to the earth who will preach,

And declaring you the norm.


Which of all these do not know,

The hand of the Lord has done;

The marvels that He does show,

For soon you will see the Son.


Does not the ear test each word,

As the lips and tongue taste food;

Adhere to what you have heard,

For a holy attitude.
