 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

The Eyes of the Lord

You depend on another,
Rather than onto the Lord;
Forgetting Christ your Brother,
As if in being ignored.

Turning to other idols,
Instead of the one true God;
That you think will win battles,
If you just honor and laud.

But you will never defeat,
Your foes as your life stands;
The way that you lie and cheat,
Has you on the sinking sands.

You trusted the Lord before,
But you do not seem to now;
As if you have closed the door,
Or you have forgotten how.

The Lord is still watching all,
No matter where you may go;
And remembering each flaw,
As His eyes run to and fro.
