Stained-Glass

Hey everyone! I do hope you all are having a lovely Palm Sunday! Anyway to get right into today’s poem…Today’s inspiration is from a quote in a blogger’s post.

Viewing life through windows tainted with suffering is a perspective that is either for the better or for the worse. While we cannot control the pain and suffering that enters our lives by no mistakes of our own, we always make the choice of what suffering does to us.

The image I got from this quote was simply, a world of pure glass. A world that looks pure and perfect on the outside, but on the inside is hurting and about to shatter. Obviously you can’t have pure glass whilst having blemishes, so to me, I find the idea of a world of glass to be a paradox. A paradox of perfect if I may be more specific. We’ve all been through hardships and sometimes we’re tempted to try to run away from the struggles in life, and pretend that we’re still the perfect ideal person. But what we need to realize is that even though hardships aren’t fun to deal with and even though they’re like a stain on glass…The result will be even more beautiful than glass, because in the end we will be like a stained glass window; stronger than ever and beautiful. Anyway! Please enjoy today’s poem and God bless ❥

Stained Glass

Stained-Glass

Pure and delicate

We are taught to be

Although those standards sure don’t define me

See a world that magnifies others scratches and smears

Won’t do anything but magnify their fears

Their fears of being real

To actually breathe air; To feel

To feel pain and to feel joy

But in this world feelings can destroy

See we’re told to be perfect; clean through and through

A world made of glass that judges everything you do

Your pain means nothing because all it does is splash perfection

But can’t you see? It’s just a misconception!

Society is teaching us to be perfect figurines

That our lives are to be perfect just like a movie scene

We can’t show our imperfections or let out our hurt

Because this glass world can’t handle any disconcert

When our perfection is splashed with pain, why do they pull away?

Why is society always the one they obey?

When will they realize that our pain just makes us stronger?

Can’t they see what they’re doing will only make it longer?

You can’t run away from the challenges of life

Ignoring those hurt never took away strife

Sure challenges hurt and yeah they cause pain

But you never leave the situation without any gain

I don’t care if it stains me

I don’t care if they see

That so called imperfection really helped me to be

Not to act or to do but to actually be me

Through my pain I’m made beautiful

And in the end my life is plentiful

So when they ask me to wipe all my stains away, I’ll pass

You can have your paradox of perfect but I’ll always be stained glass.

Live Life Well

-Mei

Q/A By Yours Truly:

 What book (or movie) character embodies your personality? I’ve been told that some aspects of my personality are like that of Lucy from Narnia. Other than that, no other fictional characters come to mind. Although Deborah from the book of Judges is someone that I admire!

Who/what inspired your love for writing? I think I’ve always really had a thing for writing, but I didn’t really start writing until I was 12 when my mom encouraged me to enter in a competition for Poetry. I got third in State, so I think that competition really encouraged me to keep on writing. As for inspiration…I can find inspiration in practically anything and anyone so I guess the world inspired my love for writing ❤️

If you could interview one person from the past, present or future, who would you interview and why? Deborah from the Bible, because she was so confident and brave, and too me those are some pretty good traits to have =P

What’s your most played song right now? I can’t really pick just one song! It’s a three-way tie between Love Me, One Call Away, and Let It Go.

What’s your favorite season and why? Fall 100% It’s my absolute favorite season because of all the stunning colors and the change it brings. Plus! The weather is very pleasant during the Summer/Fall transition =]

What MBTI personality type are you? I’m an ENTJ. Obviously not everything in the results matched up (especially the part about having a hard time showing my true self) to reality and I’m obviously not about to think those results are who I am, but for the most part the results seemed pretty legit =]

What’s your dream job? What was your dream job when you were 5? Why has or hasn’t it changed? An Engineer who travels the world as an inspirational speaker =P I’m almost positive that I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was younger, but as I got older I found out how much I’m allergic to the shedding animals and such.

Who is the blogger you read most? (Or top 5-10 😉 I know this is hard to narrow down!!!) I haven’t really had a lot of time to read everyone’s lovely blog posts, but I’d have to say that when I do go through my reader I always look forward to reading Erika’s posts ❥ Her poetry is amazing!

I Am His.

➳Hey everyone! It’s Mei! I hope everyone is having a lovely beginning of their week =] Today’s poem is a declaration of my own, that is simply stating that I wont let anyone or anything tell me who to be. I know who I am in Christ and that’s pretty much good enough, because the rest I, myself can freely create ➳ Enjoy ツ

I Am His.

Go ahead

Call me what you want to

Tell me what you think

You can judge the way I live

And prepare to let me sink

I will not fit a mold

Or strive to be one of your puppets

I don’t aim for the society

Because all it does is bring anxiety

You can laugh all you want

You can try the best you can

But Gods’ the only one who gets to tell me who I am♕

Live Life Well

-Mei
