My Warmth When I’m Cold

My Warmth When I’m Cold

My Warmth When I’m Cold

Look at me, look at me
Oh Lord look at me
I am cold, my hands shakin’
How long will it last?

Remember me, remember me
In my coldest hours, Lord remember me
I am freezing, my lips tremblin’
How long shall I endure?

If faith can move the mountain
Let my faith be warmth to me
When I’m cold, in need of hold
Let my faith be warmth to me

Alone I sit in the cold

When I’m bored, I’m productive.

Daily Prompt entry~

Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?

I’m a night owl woman, but I’m not always productive at nights. Ironic. Honestly, I am most productive at dawn, I can write up to 2 poems or conceptualize ideas in just one sitting. However, when I’m bored, really, really bored, my brain is then overly…

Listen to Me

In a world with numerous people,
Here cries a voice so tiny and gentle
Will someone dare to hear?
Will someone notice a voice so little?

In a city with brilliant, colored lights,
Here walks a child so weak and fragile
Does anyone know that tonight is winter?
Does anyone feel what my stomach aches?

In a street with busy people,
Here comes a…

My Divine Savior

Lord and Savior,
Prince of Peace
At the mention of Thy name,
My hands tremble in faith to Thee,
My lips quiver at Thy righteousness
Knees down, humbled at Thy presence.

Holy, holy, holy
King of kings,
my Divine Savior.
Forgive this creature,
I beseech Thee.
Renewed at Thy mercy.

Why “My Divine Savior?”

NanoWrimo CountDown

Alright, I know it’s quite too early for a countdown to NanoWrimo. The National Novel Writing Month is still seven months from now, but I just feel like promoting this novel writing event for some good, boring reasons–

  • My sister’s not at home.
  • I don’t know what to write but I feel like I have to write something.
  • I’m hungry and it makes me think about NaNoWrimo.

Lames reasons, right? Anyway, this…

A Morning Cup

I wrote this poem in participation for the Weekly Writing Challenge, from the Daily Post. Essentially, the whole content of this poem is inspired by my housemates–my sister, my young Uncle, and my cousin. We have different tastes in life, different tasks we are busy about, and different perspectives–but we never forget to smile to one another and care for each other. Despite the busy-ness, each…
