 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

As long as you are a child,

No difference than to a slave;

Disciplined not to be wild;

And punished when you misbehave.

 

The owner of everything,

Is God the Divine Almighty;

To whom we are supposed to cling,

While we follow His decree.

 

But Christ is under protectors,

And managers until the date;

For guarding against infectors,

As the Father tells Him to wait.

 

When we were children the same way,

Of this world that we were enslaved;

Obedient as to not to stray,

In the manner that we behaved.

 

But when the fullness of time came,

The Father had sent forth His Son;

In order for Him to proclaim,

All that had been stated was done.

 

For to redeem under the Law,

So that everyone receive;

A method for healing the flaw,

Only to those who will believe.

 

Receive adoption as a son,

Who is your heavenly Father;

And that salvation had begun,

Through Jesus Christ as your Brother.

 

You are His sons and daughters,

God sent His Spirit of His Son;

Through the baptismal waters,

That transformation had begun.

 

Abba! Father! Cries in the heart,

So, you are no longer a slave;

Sons and daughters to impart,

Who will be rescued from the grave.

 

For there are no earthly pleasures,

For you matches for that awaits;

Receiving heavenly treasures,

Upon arrival at the gates.
