 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Battle Ready

One thing I know that is for sure,
We are in the midst of a war;
Not just nation against nation,
More like a spiritual erosion.

That is why we need to be strong,
For the agony will prolong;
Keep your faith and remain sincere,
You will be able to persevere.

The fight is not of flesh and blood,
Rather temptations that will flood;
Enticing you with many lures,
While having a choice of doors.

No matter where you may embark,
There are evil forces from the dark;
That are ready for a good fight,
Trying to pull you from the light.

You need the Lord and His power,
While you put on His armor;
For there are struggles every day,
Battling you in making you stray.

With your prayers and deep desires,
Make requests to quench the fires;
Keep watching having a strong goal,
Ever vigilant for your soul.
