 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Demonstrate being a Servant

We do not give people a chance,
Allowing them to take a stance;
In finding fault with how we serve,
Because it would throw us a curve.

Instead our lives show we are,
As a superb servant by far;
Superior like the elite,
And feeling a little conceit.

Maybe we have endured some things,
That suffering and distress brings;
But is nonsense for us to chide,
Allowing us to fill with pride.

Because we tend to criticize,
Thinking that we are really wise;
And we are better all the time,
Not seeing we commit a crime.

The problem is we do not seek,
Being humble as well as meek;
Doing hard work and sleepless nights,
With the love of God that excites.

The love of God willing to share,
Showing others that you do care;
And possibly a chance to win,
Another person from their sin.
