Wanting to repeat
School dance and singing
To let me see tomorrow
Not to let my friends watch
Only want to let me see
Inside my heart I feel so privileged
Joy bumps in my heart and mind
Wishing he can do so to Jesus
Time for bed
Mouth continuously opens
Repeating his question repetitively
Coming down from his bed
No peace of mind
Steam rises out of my head
Raising my voice to him to sleep
Share the reason he refuses to welcome
A younger boy to his bed
Due to being pushed and knocked his head
Chooses not to fight back
Caring towards younger than him
Instantly compliment his good behaviour
Encourage him to tell me earlier
Comforted of his kindness
As he closes his eyes and mouth
Peaceful reflections run through my mind
Dawns upon me the hurts and pains
In same experiences
In same responses
Better self understanding
Lead to understand my son better

I’m happy for my son just want to sing and dance for me to see. I wish he can do so for Jesus. Oh, it’s so irritating for my son to be so talkative before sleep until I lose my temper. He repeats that he dislikes a younger toddler named Namur because Namur pushed him until his skull hurts. Suddenly, Mr. Peabody and Sherman animation comes to my mind. I also remind him of Sherman with the girl who bullied him. Then they become good friends. In conclusion, I point to him that he has a good heart not to take revenge. I’m attempting to encourage his kind behaviour. Inside my heart, I feel so thankful to God and feel comforted. Suddenly, the Lord opens my eyes to understand myself. After I was pushed by my husband, a few days later I tell to my parents. I thought they know. They are shocked of me not telling them earlier. Oh no! I don’t wish my son to be bullied. I need to take note of him. Though he can exaggerate, his sensitivity level is high as mine. This is a shocking self discovery, realization and reality.
Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Accident phone cable pulls out
Attempting to repair and replace
Beyond understanding scope
Seek my help
God blesses the work of my hands
The phone is alive again
Handle with care
Take good care
That scares him off
Choosing to let me handle those
Since young I have been seeking to understand

There are guests coming for the Cell Group Christmas party. I re-learn to welcome them again. When I am assigned as a group leader with four kids, I feel awkward. However, I learn to accept responsibility as a leader though reluctant. When it is too noisy, my ears can’t take it. It’s good they have a good time. My son is also having a good time.
SS chats with my son. He says he doesn’t like his dad. What? Do I overhear it correctly?
At night, my son is talking with his grandmother (dad’s side). I feel much happier to leave the room and drink detox tea in the kitchen. He moves his body a lot until pulling down the phone and its cable. So the communication is totally cut off. His dad scolds him for not listening and always pulling the cable. Then he attempts to repair it to no avail. The phone rings at my parents’ room. He chooses to tell my son to answer the phone than answering the phone himself. Immediately, he uses his mobile phone to call back and explain the situation.
My husband says that now he chooses to think openly. That makes him much happier. Life is short. Finally, he comes to such conclusion. Then he explains the phone cable issue. I look at it. He opens the phone cable box socket to let me see. No cables are cut off. I close the box off. Next I see the cable is pulled out. Scrutinize it closely. The red and blue is totally cut off. The cable is beyond repair. So I use the other cable for the printer fax machine as the replacement. It works perfectly. He says that he has tried it but it doesn’t work. Maybe he doesn’t plug the head deeply. Suddenly, I am reminded of my previous full time job working days. My two female employees were being bullied by the server. Whenever they switched it on, the server refused to switch on. However, when WC and/or I switched it on, it switched on out of fear. It was the joke and so true. Therefore, I joke with my husband that the cables dislike him and bully him due to his lack of understanding towards them. Then I joke more. Who ask him to bully me? That’s why the cables bully him back. He speaks out to let me handle all those. I respond to let him learn. And conclude to him, “handle with care and maintain well.” Because I remember him saying to throw rather than repair. I believe to maintain and repair.
Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.
Dorr is a multimedia artist who produces social stories visually to help the autistic and ADHD. This is a great news. This Autism Educator & Artist: Dorr to Understanding news introduces Dorr and needs of autistic people. I agree his statements “A lot of these students either are misunderstood or they misunderstand their peers.” Because I often misunderstand the jokes among my peers. His mission in life, “My job is to bridge that gap.” really captures my heart.
We are too diverse
We complement each other
Complement each other’s strengths
Diverseness also causes conflict
Do humans’ weaknesses cause conflict?
Strengthen each other to overcome
An understanding and loving heart and mind
A repentant heart and mind

Mum C’s poem titled We are twisted moves me to birth this poetry. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Call other dumb upsets me
And pisses me off!
It is not the way to do so!
Who are we to say so?
Different people have different level of understanding
People are created by God in His image.
Who are we to call others dumb?
Everyone has their own

While I was resting, the one who employs me in an adhoc basis text message me. He called someone dumb for not understanding his issues. Hence, the above poetry is birthed out and written down. Why do I say so? Because I am the only one being considered slow amongst my siblings. Of course, I always feel stupid for being weaker in my slow response towards others. That is before I know The Lord Jesus. Yet He reaches out to me and saves me from my wrong perspectives of myself. I know what I want in life is to be an author. My parents dissuades me from doing so. The most foolish things I have ever done was to listen to their decisions upon my life – study in the industry I do not want to study. In order not to waste their money, I force myself to complete the studies to bachelor. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
On the vast ocean
Ocean of life’s troubles
Ocean of woes
Floating around sorrowfully
Nowhere to go
Hoping to find
Island of team-ship rather than competition
Passing by many islands
Many islands reject after squeezing me
Give! Give! Give!
All these drain enthusiasm in me
Wearing me out
Where is the island?
The island of mutual understanding and respect
Not the dead sea island
Where is the island?
The island where I can rest
The island of mutual understanding and respect
The island of truthfulness
The island of complementing mutual needs

Whenever failed attempts of finding a full time job after having a child for more than three years, I feel downcast. Am I drifting aimlessly in my job search? I wish to support my parents financially. Whenever there is time, I surf the Internet at home and reply to emails and comments due to financial restriction. Some bosses squeezed me and refused to pay me the little income for the work I have done. Making excuses and even empty promises. Only consider their own interests without considering employees’ needs. These really kill my enthusiasm in my work. Don’t I need to eat? Can’t I earn a living? Their motto is their own benefit. When they want to train me, they say beautiful words.
Project out of the delivery room
A baby is born
His first cry
Enter my ears
Life with baby seems rough
Giving him full attention
Stay with him while he cries
Connect us with
The more I care him
The more he calms down with my presence
The more he communicates calmly
Though not all the time

Upon reaching motherhood phase of life, I search through books and attempt to apply it. Some methods are successful, but some methods are not applicable. So I’m still learning and agree with some of the theories.
