 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Submit for the sake of the Lord,

To the human institution;

Let not laws of man be ignored,

As based on your constitution.


Whether a president or a king,

Or to governors under him;

The punishment that they would bring,

Could make your life to become grim.


To punish those of wicked ways,

From the evil that they perform;

Those doing good reward with praise,

Through society to reform.


For this is the will of the Lord,

That by doing good as we should;

Silence the foolish that ignored,

The ignorance of how they stood.


Live life as people who are free,

Not to cover up evil things;

Rather what God wants you to see,

Living for what His goodness brings.


Honor and love the brotherhood,

Revering God and the rulers;

Treating of others as you should,

Not like the deceptive foolers.


Submit with all of your respect,

Not only in doing the good;

Of the unjust do not reject,

Follow directions as you should.


Because this is a gracious thing,

While being mindful of God;

One endures the sorrows to bring,

From anything that is outlawed.


Unjust suffering from sorrow,

That all of us has to endure;

For what credit for tomorrow,

With rewards that God will ensure.


When you sin look for a pardon,

You must endure the suffering;

Soften hearts before they harden,

Reach out to Christ for buffering.


He bore our sins on the tree,

For we are like sheep gone astray;

As a shepherd to oversee,

That we do not satanic prey.
