“God’s Inspiration”

By Ryan Dominque

 

From where does wisdom come?

Man’s mistakes fail to clarify,

But the young gain certainty;

Yet it’s God who summons them to testify;

‘God’s inspiration is our sage!’

 

 

 

 

 

Power does not equal strategy;

Skills are gained by mercy,

God finalizes all outcomes;

Pride is dashed to dust,

Shiny metal turns to rust;

It all passes and He remains

Titles, positions and stratagems!

Man implores embarrassment,

Before God he cannot give way;

Wisdom comes not from age,

God’s inspiration is our sage!

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore, cast your grievances;

Before God they are buckwheat,

It is God who tears down gates and walls;

And aligns structures which he calls,

He destroys gluttons who boast;

And weakens the heart of hypocrites,

He baffles the mind of wanderers;

And shuffles the nature of the wicked,

Because wisdom comes not from age;

God’s inspiration is our sage!
