I wrote this poem some three years ago before my Surgery and Radioactive Iodine, I didn’t know anything about Jesus, about His healing power yet He had been with me even when I was not even thinking of Him, I relied on my own strength, trusted my own not knowing there is a greater God after all who can heal all kinds of diseases.
Through the ups and downs,
over the rough and ease of life
Remarkably enduring people whose setbacks turned to be an ambition
remained strong and unshaken
In the midst of all nerve-wracking fiasco
remained to be holding on to the myriad dreams
Unsought and unasked yet their hearts are filled with so much joy
for the magnitude of their hardships corresponds to their hearts’ desires
Moving, Steering, Moving forward to the direction known as success
no hesitation, no surrender, no retreat until victory is attained
Prevailing ’til the end of time, ‘Tis a battle I want to win, ‘Tis a battle I shall win
A battle where no one gets hurt, no pain all but gain
Havoc is everywhere, And hope is power
Two confounding options I shall revere.
And I shall use these means to become stronger and emerge a winner
I shall not fear! I shall not fear!
No suffering will ever be worth it without overcoming
In life, we all have to fight instead of crying and whining
To the cancer cells growing in my neck, to the cancer cells which make my life even more worthwhile
I shall fight, I shall win and I shall stand with a smile.
Now that I am a born again Christian, here’s my own version of INVICTUS (Unconquerable)
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me
to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.1 minute ago 0 likes
