Hear and Give Ear

Hear ye
Give ear

Be not proud
Humble thyself before the Lord

Never cease to
Give glory to God

In times of blessing
In times of darkness

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

Jeremiah 13 verse 15 to 16 speaks poetically. The importance to hear the Word from God. Only one ear is mentioned. It means listen from one ear and enters into mind, heart and spirit. “Be not proud” means to be more humble before the Lord. “Give glory to God” emphasizes to praise Him in our good times before hardship occurs.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

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

As I return to it and write my inspiration, I am challenged to explore all five senses. Next is to sixth senses and lead to the seventh sense to learn to trust Jesus albeit unforeseen circumstances. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Party Animal

Posted on

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.

Cutting Words

Posted on

Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
To seek the truth
By asking my son’s stance
Instead of assuming
Assuming he wriggles like a dog
In front of his grandma’s door

Cut! Cut! Cut!
This irked me to the core
Cutting my words
To justify her actions
Cutting my words
Insisting her own mindset
Insisting her own way
Babbling like a train
Instead of peaceful discussion
Cutting my words
With her ears closed
With her mouth closed
With her eyes closed
Refusing to listen
Refusing to see
The right perspective

How many times
Do our hearts are
Closed to God’s love
Closed to see God
Closed to find rest
In Jesus Christ?

This kind of conversation irritated me for keeping on cutting my explanation instead of listening after she blabbered. She was furious of revenge from her grandson to hit back. She was angry for him to hit his own dad.

When I probed my son and asked caringly, he responded he hit his dad playfully. His dad often played with him acting like a bad guy so he wanted to play that with his dad. Unexpectedly, she hit him for doing so and the revenge occurred. Heated arguments with my son and disciplined him, but he dashed to my mother out of fear.

Loss

Loss

Loss

Is sleeping soundly good for the just?
Does the wicked has sleeping difficulty?
Not all who have insomnia are wicked.
Losing someone dear to us is extremely painful.
Losing our pathways is detrimental.
Losing Truth from heart is damaging.
Losing the Lord is estrangement.
Don’t lose Lord Jesus Christ in us!

Psalms 4:8 [KJV]
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalms 127:2 [KJV]
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so He giveth His beloved sleep.

Proverbs 3:24 [KJV]
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Proverbs 4:14-27 [KJV]
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. But the path of the just
is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. My son, attend to My words; incline thine ear unto My sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

These past few days, the inspired poetry came before I fell into deep slumber.

What You See & Hear

Posted on

What you see is not what you hear
What you hear is not what you see

Open your eyes widely
Open your ears clearly
Wear your spectacle
Remove the speck covering your eyes
Dig out the dirt in your earlobe
Let your ear as long as the rabbit
Use both of them
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

Please do REMEMBER
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

Revised On: Sunday, 1 July 2012 from 2am to 5:10pm

As I was cycling home from buying groceries, “What you see is not what you hear. What you hear is not what you see.” has been speaking to my mind. Subsequently, I remembered of my situation before. A friend who is guy ever met me at the eateries near my church. Afterward, he seek my permission to follow me in order to know which church building I go for worship then he left as I entered the church building.

Upon reaching home after the completion of Bible class on a certain topic, suddenly my sister questioned worriedly where I went. I answered I went to church for class. Abruptly, she repeated what her friend reported, “I saw your sister walk with a guy to an apartment.” Thank God for His Holy Spirit to give me calmness and replied gently that the apartment was just one out of other apartments I need to pass by from the eateries in order to reach my destination, which is the church building. In my heart, I thank the Lord for the pastor to give a certificate of attendance upon the completion of the Bible class with their contacts. Confidently, I took out the certificate from my school bag. She believed me. And this event has been a laughable matter due my sister’s friend basing his deduction according to what he saw. It will be good if he probed to listen the conversations and followed out of concern, rather than see superficially and report it.

Sometimes hearing people say only without observing may make a mistake also. The animation “Death Note” showed the corrupted officer named Light questioning his suspected underground follower. Light used stackable notes to tell her what to do and telling lies as his other colleagues were listening to his conversations. This what the police officers do to collect evidence. It is not a wise decision either due the incomprehensible of human hearts tempted to go astray (Jeremiah 17:9).
