Poetry : Old Man’s Wisdom

Poetry : Old Man’s Wisdom

Author’s Note : This poem was inspired by advises from the elderly, what we here called Old Man’s Wisdom. Old Man’s Wisdom Mine not to lead, but mine to follow, Mine not to weep, but mine to keep aglow; No rights have I to be your elder, Neither rights have I to be your teacher. But friend, true am I in sharing these words, My needs that you keep on the right road; As a friend so true, these words I…

A Perfect Man

A Perfect Man

Job 1:22, KJV “In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.” A Most Beleaguered Man Job was a perfect and upright man, fully righteous. Even God Himself said so, and to the devil no less. If you think however that no evil will befall a righteous saint of God, than you would be wrong. Within the span of a few hours, Job lost everything. He lost his children, his wealth and his properties. He lamented and grieved. But…

Meditative Poetry: The Dreamer’s Hope

Meditative Poetry: The Dreamer’s Hope

They call me a dreamer; They say I lead a meaningless life with no thoughts for the future; They call me a time-waster because I idle the time away doing things they don’t understand, thinking thoughts which are lost to them; Time and Tide wait for no man, they all say; But for me Time is no more: Time has ceased to exist in this chaotic and pathos world our beloved Earth has become; As for Tide – crimson with…

Thoroughly Embarrassed

Thoroughly Embarrassed

Have you ever been embarrassed by anyone before? I’m certain the answer is “Yes!” for all of us. But have you ever been embarrassed by anyone in public before? I’m certain that for many of us the answer is also “Yes!” The Embarrassing Incident Just the other night, a female acquaintance said to another younger, married and still childless female friend, “Hey, by next year you must give birth already in order to get the benefits from our government.” She…

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 7)

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 7)

Even a child that I was, I remember that during the twenty-minute walk back home, I was clutching my bag of toys tightly, and thinking about Old Man Red, and what he did for me. It would have been a trivial thing to anyone, I supposed, for an adult to buy something for a child. But to a child who had simple but (to her) pressing needs, Mister Red was practically a hero! A toy would have been a priceless…

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 3)

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 3)

But no one bothered to explain further to us ‘kids’ what kind of monster or what this ‘monster’ really looked like. They just gave the impression that the monster looked like Old Man Red. However, I did remember that a neighbor visited with my parents once. He was telling us in hushed whispers, that one dark night he saw Old Man Red digging a deep hole in the forest behind his, Mister Red’s, house. He was putting a big and…

A New Creature

A New Creature

2 Corinthians 5:17, KJV “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” If we were the people to judge anyone based on their past for future work commitments, then I’m sure we’re all going to find faults with everyone. Consider the people in the Bible whom God had used to be His messengers and workers. Noah, David, Mary Magdalene, Matthew, and all the rest of them. They…

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 2)

Story : His Name Is Red (Part 2)

For as far as I knew, only a handful of adults would bother to greet him and made efforts to talk to him. At which point, Old Man Red would reply abruptly and gruffly, before turning away as if he didn’t welcome the attention or courtesy. Yikes! I did wonder though, how he came to be called ‘Red’ since nothing about the old man came remotely close to being anything of bright color, or any color for that matter. Everything about him was…

Soldier And Warrior

Soldier And Warrior

Anyone can put on a uniform, hold a rifle and call himself a soldier, but not all soldier is a Warrior. A Warrior is always a Soldier. What is the difference? Bible reading : Ephesians 6:10-18 I know a young man from my church who became a soldier. His mom came to me to talk about him, seeking counsel and prayer for her son. I asked her, “Why did he choose a career in the army?” She replied, “He couldn’t…

Not Ashamed

Not Ashamed

Romans 1:16 KJV “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” “…to the Jew, and…the Greek”, which means to EVERYBODY. In the Bible, Matthew 26, we read about Peter who denied Christ even after Jesus Himself warned him of this fact. Perhaps Peter was frightened. It was after all, a highly tense night during which…
