Use Left or Right Hand?

Most sketchings gives soft sense
Producing different feelings
Current animation teacher can tell my
Frustration
Tired
Confusion
Loving the picture

Comparing first and second day of
Gestural figure drawings
First day of gestural sketchings
Better than the second day
Best results are the sketches with left hand
Teacher doesn’t know my problems
Using both left and right hands

Experiment drawing with my left hand
Results are faster and give stronger feeling
Than sketchings with my right hand
Warming up sketchings with left hand
Switch back to right hand
Boost the strength of my gestural drawings
A new discovery of myself and at a loss

Using left hand
Or
Using right hand
Or
Use both hands
This really slows me down
Need the Lord to discover His creation

The animation teacher emphasises my first gesture drawing is much better than the second day. That reminds me of my left hand. As I draw with my left hand drawings, all show more energy compared to my right hand. When I return to my right hand, my right hand drawings have more energy. What happen to my body system? A new discovery about myself. How can I be ambidextrous? Impossible. This really slows me down.

At home, my younger brother gives a news to me that my husband teaches our son in his studies. It is a big surprise to me. Then he reveals dad and mum go to my son’s school so the principal gives my husband a call.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Being An Ambidextrous

Writing with a left hand
On the post-it notes
Seems nostalgic

It has been ages to begin
Writing with a left hand
At the age of three

Only to be dissuaded from using left-hand
It is a scar to remember those times
Being forced to learn

Writing with my right hand
Though I have been writing with my right hand
Left hand and feet are my first reactions

Being too compliant to force myself
Writing with my right hand
Seeking acceptance and to love my parents
Knowing they care

Hoping to blend with the common people
Blending like a chameleon
Writing with my right hand
As a camouflage to be accepted as the norm

But
Left hand and feet are my first reactions
In whatever I do
Right hand and feet are the next movements

Living a confused life
Only to find out the real me
After marriage and teaching my son

My left hand automatically draws and writes
A surprising realisation
Only to be treated as the odd ones in my family

Yes, they care about me
Yet I feel suppressed to comply to their opinions
Because I care about how they feel

Only when my suppression grows worse
The more I am against their opinions for not understanding me
Wishing only Jesus, my Lord and Saviour

Though they mean it for good
God means it for my own good too

Being an ambidextrous

It has been ages for me to write with my left hand. It feels good and sentimental to remember my younger days. The more I understand myself and feeling strange about myself for being the odd one in my family. Hope this poetry able to comfort others who go through the same thing as I do. You are not alone. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
