Silence

Silence intertwines in hearts desire
Music interludes with quietness 
Life intermingle with solitude

Interrelation with the existence of light and darkness
Coming from inside
Battling to choose and decide

The seeds of goodness and evil
Sown from external sources
Which part to trod and live out?

Awakened from my dream, I instantly wrote the popping words “Silence intertwines quietness. Silence interludes quietness”. Then I return to sleep again. Writing block occurred in “interrelation” and finally the feelings return upon many visitations and by God’s grace. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Tongue’s Traffic Light

Red light appears
Brake tongue pedestal
Time to keep quiet
Red light dispels

Orange light appears
Slight brake tongue
Time to warn confidant
Orange light disappears

Green light appears
Running tongue
Ticking with certain time
Short period to express words
Before green light hides

Return to orange light
Back to red light

The idea of keeping our mouths quiet at a period of time prevents us from coming trouble. And the time to warn those who needs warning and when to say out our opinions. Traffic light seems that the best analogy and metaphor. Upon writing it down, the above poetry flowed out of my imagination.

Darkness Disciplinary Action

Darkness cover the
Kitchen
Living room
Climb down the chair
Crying
Begging
For mercy
Click!
Light returns to the kitchen
Willingly to correct his attitude.

Darkness cover the
Kitchen
Living room
Climb down the chair
Walk and open
The door of my room
Calling his dad.
Then he runs back to
The kitchen
Drag! Drag! Drag!
Drag his white chair
Climb up to his chair
Click!
Light returns to the kitchen
Then he swiftly drinks his milk.

Yesterday was the first time I implemented such discipline to my toddler when he misbehaved. Unexpectedly, the same disciplinary actions don’t work today and produces the actions stated in the second paragraph.

Don’t Waste

Don’t Waste
Don’t Waste
Don’t Waste

Don’t waste the light
Don’t waste the water
Don’t waste the valuable time
Fully utilise it
While waiting for
the water to fill
The toilet bowl tank
Read book
Close the tap
To prevent tank leakage

The tank of my toilet bowl is leaking. As I turn on the tap water, it takes time to fill it to the full. As I was waiting on Friday night, I don’t want to waste time so I took a book and read. “Don’t waste the light. Don’t waste the water. Don’t waste time” had been echoing in my heart.

Deep Buried Feelings

Deep buried feelings were kept somewhere.
Painful memories were left unidentified for ten years.
Not ten years, more than that.
Unknowingly, it was planted since young.
It was sowed seed by seed.

Motivation of study is from external source.
Motivation of study only comes from mother.
No inner motivation to do so.
No sense of purpose in life.
No compass to guide me.
Only my parents are my compass.

We followed mother to her chosen destination to give us good future.
We lived in an uncle’s house due to lack of finance.
With my own eyes, I saw my mother being bullied.
I wish to stand strong, but I’m weak.
I’m standing at the corner.
I feel lost.
Angry with my self!
Why am I so slow?
Why am I a weakling?
Leave me alone.
I just wish to be quiet.

A slight headache.
Someone came to my rescue.
It is like a Light enters my heart.
There is a sense of purpose.
I need to stand strong.
I can’t!
But in the Light I can.

A door is closed.
But He opens a window.
A window opens my mind to marriage.

With just a few words through written message,
My past deep feelings were dug out.
No, I think I found out now.
Now I found out what it is.
Found out the root cause to fear of marriage.
It is the very seed that takes root in my heart since young.
It shaped my thinking.
It also shaped my heart.
