Tags



Just wanna share with you my poem which is my self title as an introduction to my blog. I've just created this poem four years ago and was published to 'Kalyo', our officicial school literary publication...

rocky

God allows life to be rocky…
full of trials, full of challenge
full of pains, full of aches
full of sufferings, full of cracks
full of fears, full of threats
full of droughts, full of crimes
full of angers, full of wickedness
full of betrayals, full of temptations
full of darkness, full of evilness.
He lets everybody to be rocky…
to be hard, to be strong
to be courageous, to be tough
to be burly, to be sturdy
to be bully, to be ruffian
to be fighter, to be assertive
to be vigorous, to be coercive
to be intensive, to be forceful
to be hopeful, to be faithful
He polishes rocks to be glossy…
to turn rough into smooth
to use pains to lead compassion
to turn fears into faith
to use greed to lead forgiving
to turn doubts into trusts
to use weakness to lead courage
to turn black into white
to use angers to lead love…to lead peace!
Life is rocky…
that sways to and fro
that moves backward or forward
that totters and shakes on every beat
that continuously grind, dig, and crush…
not to put all into dust…
but to shine all into PRECIOUS GEMS…!
