Heartbroken Children’s Voices

Posted on

A pair of large steel scissor
Cut through
A branch

Seeking immediate remedy
Only to be disregarded
Anyway a broken branch is irreparable

Continue the breaking
Every broken branches
Shoots more arrows into my heart

Such sights
Tear two hearts into pieces
My son’s tears continuously roll down

Total broken pieces
produce
Broken hearts and feelings

Fatherly figure tend to hurt
Children’s hearts
Motherly figure cares child’s heart

Earthly fathers
Why do you have to exasperate the child?
Thus impairs Abba Father’s heart

Earthly mothers
Why do you have to spoil child’s heart?
Thus gives wrong signal

Earthly parents and grandparents
Be more cooperative
Stop confusing the obedient children

My dad sits on a chair and opens my son’s blue rainbow Doraemon umbrella. Suddenly, he removes the rainbow Doraemon design cloth. I thought he is repairing it. Suddenly, he breaks it. My son cries. I attempt to stop him from continuing to do so. He doesn’t care. My mum appears and is shocked. She quickly points that is not the spoilt umbrella. Then she takes out my spoilt blue umbrella. However, dad’s words towards my son are extremely hurtful, “You have many other favourite toys. This is nothing. Anyway one branch has been broken.” Cut another branch pieces. My son’s and my heart breaks. That’s so hurting. The more he breaks, the more my heart breaks. Is that how he did when I was young? He still says he wants his children to be united.

However, now I beg to differ. My siblings lack of cooperation is inherited from my parents’ siblings generation. When the Lord bless me through partnerships with the same vision, mission and values, I have to exercise partial judgment. My partners and I shouldn’t let our family members enter into the company to promote cooperative spirit and teamwork. Most family members tend to cause the downhill of cooperativeness. Can provide them financially, but not involved into the partnership company. I can only thank the Lord’s grace and mercy to find favour from the higher management corporate people including my business mentor.

At night, my dad quickly tells me that my son plays with ice cube. I immediately step into the kitchen and I question my son, “Do you play with ice cube?” He nods. Then he asks, “is there an evidence?” My heart aches. Again I question, he answers, “yes.” Instantly, I WhatsApp Uncle WY, “My heart aches when my dad tells me to confront my son for playing ice cube. He nods then begins to say, “is there an evidence?” Please pray for the Lord’s will be done. I feel so speechless.” I really surrender my husband to God. I give up to God. I want my son to grow to be strong in God’s values. In the end, after I repeatedly seek God to forgive then I confess to him that I’m the one who wants to die. I feel so much better. Then he compliments me for doing the right thing. Next he comforts me to laughter as the best medicine.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Please The Lord

Posted on

Thoroughly amend your ways
Thoroughly amend your doings
Thoroughly execute judgment
These please the Lord

Oppress not the stranger
Oppress not the fatherless
Oppress not the widow
These please the Lord

Shed not innocent blood
Walk not after other gods to your hurt
These please the Lord

Obey His voice
Walk in His ways that He has commanded
Acknowledging own mistakes
Confess your sins
Receive correction
These please the Lord

Today’s quiet time in reading Jeremiah 7 sounds so poetic. The poetry is just a summary of Jeremiah chapter 7. May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

One Way Ticket

Drowned into the sea of poetry
Writing in the abyss of sea
Sipping every drop
Gulping the water

In the abyss sea of poetry
Swimming with the poetry
Enjoying every second
Enjoying every minute
Enjoying every hour

Refusing to return to the shore
Not regretting
A point of no return
To the hot arid shore
Shore without poetry
Not regretting
A point of no return
Delve into the sea of God’s love

A one way ticket
Air ticket
Living in the sky
Looking at God’s glory
Shine of glory
Captivated by His beauty
Wishing a lifestyle of obedience
To experience Jesus’ holy life
A life of joy
A life of peace
A life of heavenly voices

Solitude & Silence

Posted on

In solitude
I find rest
From the noisy world

In solitude
I withdraw from the world
Entering into my own world

In silence
I cried of my contrite heart

In silence
I prayed to my Lord for comfort

In solitude
I heard a small still Voice

In silence
I regain my strength in my Lord Jesus
I find my voice

In solitude and silence
I commune with my Lord
My heart is ready to enter the world.

This began with, “in solitude” that slowly reminded me of Psalms and Elijah as described the book of Samuel.

Blaming Game

Life is full of uncertainties
Life is never fair

Everyone has their own stories and background
Some goes through difficult paths
Some have a blessed life
Some are born in a rich family
Some are born in a mediocre family
Some are born in a poor family
Some are born out of wedlock

We can not choose our own family

This world is full of blaming game
This world is full of blaming cycle
A cycle that is always repeated.
A never ending cycle.
Ever since the time of Adam and Eve.
Should we continue blaming?

No.
Stop the blaming.
Instead, we need to be responsible of our own actions.

These words suddenly speak into my heart like there is an inner voice of my observation about life. So I quickly write it down to my paper. In the beginning of creation, Adam blamed Eve for eating the forbidden fruit and Eve blamed the serpent. (Genesis 3) Absalom blamed King David as an excuse of his revenge to kill Amnon and to usurp the throne. (2 Samuel 13-18).

Dark of the Night

Posted on

In the dark of the night
My soul ponders
Ponders about life
Life’s uncertainties
Uncertain about what the future hold.
Holding onto something tangible

But there is more than life
More than what is seen.
Faith, hope, and love are what
I need most in this life.

What can I do in the midst of my busyness?
Now is night
In the dark of the night
All I can do is to
Attune my soul with
The Lord on High
Seeking His will
Seeking His face
Seeking His approval
Seeking His favour
Seeking His love
Seeking His voice and guidance
Seeking His strength
Seeking His wisdom
Seeking His protection
Hoping in Him
To enable me to finish
My life well.

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:) Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea farther; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it. Ecclesiastes 8:15-17 (KJV)

The above scripture resonates in my heart as I go through everyday life busy with my baby, tidying house, spending time with my family and even catching up with my friends. Seems that everyday is always busy.

Nowadays, the source of my inspiration comes from the book of Psalms where the Psalmist hope in God and in His Word during the night, which can be seen from Psalm 119:147-149 (CEB), “I meet the predawn light and cry for help. I wait for your promise. My eyes encounter each hour of the night as I think about your word. Listen to my voice, according to your faithful love. LORD, make me live again, according to your justice.”
