 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Selfish Behavior

It is selfish and stupid,
Of only you in your thought;
Taking pride in what you did,
While others thinking not.

And to sneer with jealousy,
At others who have success;
You have no insight to see,
God is who decides to bless.

You are sowing the wrong seed,
That is unable to root;
And is filled with only greed,
As it only bears bad fruit.

Wrongdoing just leads to shame,
And be marking you for life;
To always tarnish your name,
Causing nothing but much strife.

Without God you are nothing,
While living on this earth;
Be humble to Him and cling,
And God will show you your worth.
