The End Of The Impenitent - Poem by Richard Ikolo

Nemesis caught up with me
So will it always be
Suddenly, things became rough
Health condition made it tough
Who would deliver me from this calamity?
Reaping the yoke of iniquity
The price for arrogance and stubborness
The reward for haughtiness and unrighteousness
In the vale of condemnation
In the valley of destruction
To surrender means me accepting defeat
I'd rather perish in the fury of the heat
Are the great unconquerable?
Are the mighty invincible?
Oh, it was too late!
Alas, it's time to bow to fate!
In the bottomless pit of hell
Watching helplessly as I fell.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was inspired by God to write this poem to warn those who have chosen the way of destruction, the path of perdition, to have a rethink.It's not His will that any should perish.(2Pt3: 9; Isaiah55: 6,7)
