Lock

Lock

~ Hikari Yori

Losing self-confidence
Losing confidence in men
Helps to realize
Human’s frailty
Human’s weaknesses
Own weaknesses
Own lackness
Therefore, let us
Place our confidence in our Creator
Who will be our
Source of refuge
Source of help
Source of problems solver
As we put our trust in Him
As we walk in obedience in His ways

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

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.

Toxin to Nerve

Posted on

Shattered and tattered confidence
For losing the battle
The battlefield of mind
To withstand temptations
Someone is
Losing self-confidence
Losing nerve
To live in this hopeless world
To live in this competitive world

Frustration sets in
Jealousy enters from eyes
Boiling with resentment
Brimming with anger
Heart starts to beat very fast
Whole body feels very tense
Nerves tweak tightly
Nervous
The situation is really
That person is really
Getting on someone’s nerve.

STOP!
Do not do anything rash.
Remove the toxins!

I have been questioning the reason of the idiom “getting on my nerve” so I checked it from the dictionary. Then another idiom, which is the antonym of it (second paragraph), inspired me. The second paragraph was birthed out first, but it seemed like the sequel of the first paragraph. Manga is the source of inspiration where I can see different characters in different situation. Kare-Kano is one of them.

The above poetry is trying to depict someone who has a competitive spirit and dislike people who are better than them. The first and second paragraphs are from the second person point of view. Last paragraph is from the third person point of view, a close friend.
