I do know
I do not know how grass grows and gives me hope
I do not know how rainbow appears and make my heart run
I do not know how stars shine and wet my eyes
I do not know how acorns gather together and share stories
I do not know how cancers and leukemia come and steal our life
But I do know that one day, I will see a poem that make me move on.
And we will still live after death to meet again at home.
I was busy in the morning
discussing important issues of poverty and policy
with leaders of the town
I was overwhelmed with the weight of life
I become lazy in the afternoon
I just linger around in a forest of ideas looking for a wild flower
with insects and worms
Then I found a poem from a friend
Like from a water spring in a mountain
I drank some lines
I remember me forever
Whatever happened still has meaning
My current form is just a continuum of the past
Whether that is wrinkled skin or ash
I am still here
Now I am a story
I am a song
I am a poem
I am the memory that you have.
When the sun rises
feel me with your morning coffee
When the sun sets
remember me with your music
When you sleep
meet me in your dream
And when your time comes
let us meet there with love!
Be a song
Be a song,
people can sing in despair
Be a poem
people can recite in darkness
Be a prayer
God will answer in crisis
Our life should shine together.
When an acorn dies
we remember the touch, shape, and smell
When an acorn dies
only long after
we will notice a towering oak tree
Who will remember the acorn
by a giant oak tree?
Who will cry for the acorn?
Under an oak tree
poets will gather and rest
sing new songs and recite new poems
Nobody will remember the acorn any more
The acorn is still breathing there
when people stop talking about her
Who would feel her then
I was there at Troy
Paul decided to go to Europe, not Asia
That was what the Spirit said through a dream and vision
Then Paul went through whipping, ship wreck, imprisonment, and persecution!
His suffering bears fruits
His mission made many disciples
He did not gain many things on this side of the world
He received enough grace though
His life was not in vain
I am still standing on his foot steps
Lord, help us to find eternal life in you!
And have no fear for death!
At this particular moment
in this unique form
God created me
In the middle of all these chorus
without me it is not complete
I am not the center
but without me it is not whole
All the wind and fire
water and air once
go through me to be complete
I am in God and God in me
All are dancing
I am too
in the circle of dancing
I meet all of you
and we are One.
