MY POEMS


1ST COMMANDMENT
The Lord I am. I am The Lord.
Your existence I will afford.
Your motivation I will save.
To be by me is to behave.

2ND COMMANDMENT
No other god than me shall you
establish showing what to do.
No idol should be in your mind.
No idol should make up your kind.

3RD COMMANDMENT
Take not the name of God in vain.
To do by guilt will lead to pain.
The work of God is in the earth
of endless joy and priceless worth.

4TH COMMANDMENT
If you work on the seventh day
the way of God is not your way.
By God the days are to be in.
The seventh day you grateful win.

5TH COMMANDMENT
Your father and your mother you
should honour for to be seen true.
Unconsciously you make your way.
See to it night obeys the day.

6TH COMMANDMENT
If you another being kill
your selfishness is very ill.
So by The Lord you cannot be,
since God gives life, not contrary.

7TH COMMANDMENT
If you commit adultery
by God is not the victory.
The body you treat as a thing.
And that will discomposure bring.

8TH COMMANDMENT
If stealing, you have got to be
devoid of God as energy.
By God belongings should be earned
and knowledge gained by theses learned.

9TH COMMANDMENT
If you about your neighbour lie
the love of God to you will die.
The truth to anything is cure.
Because of truth life can endure.

10TH COMMANDMENT
If envying your neighbour you
to God is anything but true.
Belongingness is life to face.
By living we are put in place.
