 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Changing Failure into Success

Why do you fight and argue,
Because of a point of view;
Or for selfish desires,
In keeping lit your fires.

It's trying to take control,
Of both your body and soul;
Wanting to put yourself first,
Hot desires make you thirst.

So then you gripe and complain,
Since it's driving you insane;
Because someone else has got,
And jealous since you had not.

When someone gets a reward,
You need to look to the Lord;
Help you do better next time,
And not Satan for a crime.

Support others that do well,
Thanking God they excel;
Then the next time God will bless,
Providing you great success.
