Mentor Tormentor

Agony during
Trials Of tribulations
Stabbing sharp knives
Lashing hurts and pain
Deeply into hearts and minds
Most mentors behave like
Crazy tormentors towards disciple

Do tormentors hate disciple who make mistakes?
Are mentors tormented before when making mistakes?

Lamenting mentors remember tormenting days
Turn into tormentors once receiving disciples
Mentors, do you enjoy tormenting disciples?
Tormentors, why do you choose to be so?
Mentors, do you ever wish to be
Tormentors during tormenting days?

Doesn’t the agony tormentors’ mindset need to be eliminated?
To be effective mentors to guide disciples and/or students

Upon reading Pat Cegan’s poetry at , a concept popped out to express most circumstances that most mentors
are tormentors. But no words could describe until the last day of inspiration.

把刀放下!Put the Knife Down!






In the room
Feet clasps key holder
Put your feet down!
Don’t be a koala.

Enter the room
Palms grab onto cosmetic container
Pull back your hands!
Put your hands down!

Walk into the kitchen
Small palm grabs a knife
Put the knife down!
Knife flies and plunges into the sink.

Walk into the kitchen again
Small palm grabs a knife
Put the knife down!
Knife flies and plunges into the sink.

It all started whenever my toddler uses both of his legs to clasp the mini-figurine tied to a key. A key that is plugged into my dad’s drawer. My mother let him does it. Upon entering my parents’ room and see him does so, I often respond, “把脚放下”.

Somehow on Tuesday night, those words sounded like, “把刀放下”. Other words popped out to fill in the blanks as my memory remembers his other dangerous actions. Taking my mother’s make up powder, broken make up lotion, and even grabbed a knife from inside the spoon and fork container and immediately throw it onto the floor. Everything he does was found out when I appear. All these happened before he turned two years old while he was with his grandmother. But she wasn’t like that when I was young. She loving yet firm. I just don’t understand her.
