Think Before Suicide

Posted on

Though suicide is a self destruction form, indirectly it brings hurts to our loved ones. The Suicide Fish* mainly is the decision of a fish who loses his hope and will to live. Suicide seems to be the best solution to the problems we face in everyday lives. Refusing to acknowledge the truth causes self-denial leading to self rejection. Probably, we misunderstand the concern from our loved ones. They either speak the truth harshly or gently with a certain body language. Misinterpretation is similar to filter. As the air carries their words into our ears, we miss out some words. Losing the connected words causes the head and tail to become the conclusion.

Speaking to younger children is a challenge to the adults. Many adults complain their kids’ misbehaviour and lack of obedience. Throughout my experience, I realized my son tends to capture the last words and acts it out. “Don’t jump!” He will jump.

Conversation between my friend’s mother and helper is another good case of misinterpretation. The helper ever mentioned to her that she (helper) wanted to have four children whereas her friend has six children. She said the same thing to my mother in the next couple of days. When my mother commented my helper wants to have six children, I don’t believe. After I check out their conversations, I explain to my astonished mother.

Whenever I am going to attend workshops, voice recorder is the first thing I often grab on. When I listen to it again, I realised the in-between missing words.

Let’s take this article’s title as an example. “Think before suicide” is the theme of my topic. For example, “before” is the lost word to the recipient’s ears. So it will sound “think suicide”. Obviously, the recipients definitely will be upset and feel devalued resulting in angry person who may or may not commit suicide.

Isn’t it good to really open our ears to hear the speaker?

Think Before Suicide

Rather than, thinking suicide, why not think before suicide?

Bait

Posted on

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.

Damaged RAM vs Dead Fish

Posted on

Blank monitor screen!
System failure!
Is it the motherboard?!
Diagnosing and troubleshooting.
Diagnosing and troubleshooting again.
OH! It is just
A bar of RAM is damaged!
Removing it
The computer system is alive again.

Floating, floating.
Floating around the aquarium.
A fish body is turned upside down.
OH! It is
A dead fish!
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Or else,
The whole fishes will also die.

Smearing of conscience!
Darkness dispels out.
Dirt floats onto the river.
Unknown sin appears out.
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Receive Christ,
Receive cleansing through His blood.
Or else,
Clear conscience deadens,
Covered in darkness,
Poisonous river,
Harming and affecting others.

At first, I thought that the motherboard was damaged. My heart felt down. As I was troubleshooting my computer CPU, I was reminded about the RAM. Then I tried removing each of the two bars of RAM. When I found out that a bar of computer RAM was the one affecting the whole system down, the above inspiration birthed out. Followed by the concept of a dead fish in the aquarium. My heart feels joyful and satisfied that my hard work is not in vain. Thank God for that.
