 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Did what is good cause my death,

Rather death is made by sin;

For sin controls heart and breath,

Corruption decays within.


That through the commandment,

As sinful beyond measure;

Being disobedient,

Honoring earthly treasure.


For we know about the Law,

And spiritual in nature;

But sin sells flesh to a flaw,

Departing from the Scripture.


For I do not understand,

All of which I am doing;

Not practicing each command,

That I should be pursuing.


I practice not what I should,

Rather doing what I hate;

And remember what is good,

So, I do not seal my fate.


If I do my desire,

What the Law would allow not;

Then the lake of fire,

As God will judge my onslaught.


I agree the Law is good,

So, I no longer do bad;

Only doing what I should,

No longer with feeling sad.


But sin is living in me,

For nothing good lives within;

Since sin controls what I see,

For I have no discipline.


No secret about evil,

I do not wish to do it;

But enticed by the devil,

Persists as to pursue it.


What a wretched man am I,

Will Christ rescue me and bless;

From times that I cheat and lie,

Accepting as I confess.
