This poetry births from Joshua 20:3c where The Lord provides shelter for those who accidentally take the life of others without any intent. However, it speaks to me that The Lord is my refuge from those who are jealous of me. There is nothing to be jealous of me. However, my cousin is jealous of me. My parents and siblings told me so. Her intellect and grade is much better than me. I feel hurt with her doings. But I see The Lord protects me from further hurts and protect my son and I when I was pregnant. I also see The Lord’s protection in my family life and destroy my mother in law’s evil scheme. She is trying to sow discord between my husband and I. Though I am do hurt with my husband blindness, something good comes out of it. I see his true colours. He is possessive and biased who do not check the matter out and sprout false accusations. Though i have been living in fear, I can only leave the matter into God’s hand and pray for the blood of Jesus to cover the family. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Seven Senses

Posted on

Hoarding books with a pair eyes
Seeping like a sponge

Listen with a pair of
Sharp rabbit-like ears

Sensing every surrounding
Quiet as a stone aware of potential danger

Sniff extensively
Aware of poisonous or edible consumption

Tasting every life experiences
Lead to self-realization and understand others

Perceive others through observations
Conclude presumptions as sixth senses

Not forgetting to trust the Creator
Self-commitment to trust Jesus in all ways

My friend passed a book to me for advice. The book ‘Careers in Digital Animation’ mentions the graduate artists to do internships and unpaid jobs. It is someone who set this industry practices so this produced another IP acronym. This industry practices spoil the arts company to prey on the new artists to do free work. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Tojiru Yoshiko
Upon hearing such matter from Yori, I was shocked and curious of the book. Upon hearing the stated words, I also have the same disagreements as Yori. This sparked an inspiration in me birthing the above poetry. Any artists reading this, please hear my questions. Please consider the professions of maids, waiters, waitresses, promoters, doctors, nurses, scientists, administrative, secretaries, and other finance industries. Those without experiences will get paid for their full time internships then turns into permanent positions. But why exploit the new emerging artists and even freelancers to do the required arts job? Are arts industries considered nothing? Just preys to exploit?

With the notion of beauty, I took shower. Thinking that many people are obsessed with the sense of beauty. It produced SOB acronym. Then “smear” came to add more meaning in how God’s creation falls due to the first sin committed by Adam and Eve. Fat people are obsessed to lose weight. Thin people are obsessed to gain weight. Slim and slender people are obsessed to maintain their weight. That was how SOB acronym came into mind. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Problems often occur among people. This produced PIP acronym. According to Oxford Learner’s dictionary, pip means (1) The small hard seed that is found in some types of fruit (2) A series of short high sounds, especially those used when giving the exact time on the radio. The synonyms of pip are seed, stone, pit. The free dictionary defines pip as the stone of soft fruits such as peaches and plums. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Party Animal

Do animals party?
How animals party?
Are we like animals?
Do people behave like animals?
The strong devour the weak
And even
The weak devour the strong
Is the society turning into cities of jungles?
Are cities jungles of animals?

Hunger for power
Distracts the heart
Jealousy
Blinds the minds
Empty promises
Enter the ears
Physical appearance
Cover the eyes

What are we?
Where are we?
When do we want to change?
Which do we choose to be?
Who are we?
Why are we the way we are?
How do our Creator sees us?
Do we care what we are becoming into?

Upon pondering of party animals and observing today’s society, the above inspiration birthed out. A party animal is a term being used as a description of people who enjoys party with beer and wines. An idea of associating city with jungle is a paradox to wake the people up to stop the bullying of each other, to do self-reflection and to look beyond a person’s physical appearances. First of all, these reminded me of 2 Timothy 3:1-7 (KJV), “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” God bless you all for reading my poetry of pondering questions to minister.

Bait

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?

The second stanza came first followed by the rest. But the first stanza birthed out upon ending all stanza. First stanza’s purpose and idea came from second stanza with word “hook”. It was an allegory to depict human’s frailty needing of God’s strength.

Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of
faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

This acrostic idea came when I shredding paper. Since SP didn’t give any meaning, inserting “i” seemed suitable letter candidate than “a”. Sip gives the meaning of drinking and dwelling in Christ’s strength and protection. According to the free online dictionary, sip means
1. To drink in small quantities
2. A small quantity of liquid sipped

Tojiru Yoshiko
Upon thinking of sip and Yori’s idea, shield of faith verses inspired my poetry. Graphical design will help to illustrate this message better.

Dove in Love

My 39 months son pulled a strand of his dad’s white hair. Next day, he was looking for it but gave up due to too much white hair among the black hair. He was worried to pluck the black and the white hair at the same time. Upon observing this scene, this birthed out this poetry.

Upon writing this, I realized why people tend to take advantage of me. I talk too much of my weaknesses instead of my strengths. But I found my strengths from my good friends and friends. My weaknesses seem too clear for me without realizing others. No wonder I have low self confidence. Even though with my low self confidence, I find strength in Christ and to persevere. Gradually, my hard work pays off when I see my improvements. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

When thinking of lacking confidence, it produced the acronym of LOC. Inserting K made it more meaningful. Free online dictionary defines lock as

  1. A device operated by a key, combination, or key card and used, as on a door, for holding, closing, or securing.
  2. A section of a waterway, such as a canal, closed off with gates, in which vessels in transit are raised or lowered by raising or lowering the water level of that section.
  3. A mechanism in a firearm for exploding the charge.
  4. An interlocking or entanglement of elements or parts.

Lacking and even losing self-confidence and/or confidence in men may seem a bad point in terms of the world’s point of view. But this may lead us to seek the Truth of our purpose in life. When we found the Source of help in our Saviour, our eyes will be fixed upon Him who cares our broken hearted.

Somehow, this incident speaks to me about the heavy burdens mankind carry on their shoulders.

Draping towel to dry

Needing to do bowel movement
Pulling out hand to tissue roll

Sliding open the bathroom door
Questioning of wet tissue roll
Then back to own room

Huh?

Days passed
Tissue roll increase in wetness
But no wetness when she shower
Analyzing bathroom after the questioner showers
Investigating the root cause like detective
Only to find out
Shower sprayer angle towards tissue roll

Blinded by own self justification
Without God’s Word as compass guide

Being too emotional as a mother when my son misbehaves, unexpectedly, he enjoys irritating me. Sometimes, I locked myself in the bathroom to cry after the struggle ends. After I calm down, I realised that humans are emotional being. EB acronym is produced. Inserting letter B will be EBB. Pondering about it, lead me to a picture. Picture came into my mind of a person being blown by an explosion. It is a movie that I watched before. Afterward, the movie showed that the person disappeared. Thank God it is not gross. According to the dictionary, ebb means

    1. The flowing back of the tide as the water returns to the sea (opposed to flood, flow)
    2. A flowing backward or away; decline or decay: the ebb of a once great nation.
    3. A point of decline: His fortunes were at a low ebb.
    4. To flow back or away, as the water of a tide ( opposed to flow )
    5. To decline or decay; fade away: His life is gradually ebbing.

Upon pondering this word, “emotion”, emotion tends to get the better of me too. It can be disastrous if depend it as compass. Let me share my bad experience into a learning experience.

Excited to get the first illustration project, I willingly accept it when my mom and brother disagreed. They disagreed to accept from my relative whom I felt close during young times. But she flew overseas to further her studies and no contact with her for 12 years and returned. Willingly, I emailed her the sketches. Upon knowing my price
though half lower than the market price, she told me she didn’t want to continue it. Regrets crushed me to know her true mask. If I know, I should believe my mom and brother. Afterward, my sister did mention of my relative character. Before I didn’t believe my relative is a cunning person. Now, it is a hard truth for me. Gulp. Like a hard stone in my throat and I was depressed. Obviously, I wore the wrong spectacle back then. Though no contact now and without her apology, I feel sad to lose such relationship. My dad also dislikes this relative. Then I realised those freelance artists will request for 50% deposit for the charged amount. I feel that I’m like a fool. Thank God that the second client introduced from a friend is approved by my family and completed the project.

Missed Which Boat

Wedding bells ring
Missed the career boat
New family caregiver
Problems with mother in law
Lifelong struggle of either finance and love or abuse
If husband’s contribution loses existence, wife ends as job seeker and
child care
Best to have partner around

Career minded
Missed the wedding boat
Parents caregiver
Problems in finding partner
Lifelong struggle of loneliness
If parents lose existence, loneliness creeps in
Best to have parents around

Which boat to miss?
Which path to tread?
A dilemma
A dilemma

Can’t we choose both?
To provide for children
Can’t we choose both?
Just like in Proverbs 31
To provide for the family
In case of rainy days
