 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Running to the Goal

I have not reached our goal,
That I got for my soul;
None of us are perfect,
Falling short I predict.

So I will keep running,
Till the awakening;
And can open my eyes,
To take hold of the prize.

What is over is past,
Yesterday does not last;
Leaving those things behind,
And let God clean your mind.

For my goal is Heaven,
And if I'm forgiven;
Then victory is won,
For what Jesus has done.

So I eagerly wait,
When I have reached the gate;
Jesus Christ will embrace,
As we enter His place.
