Draw The Line
I have only visited three elder's homes so far, and from one of it, one day a Granny said if I don't get married early I would destroy another family and get married. I got so frightened of what she said, I came home very upset and I asked my mom whether I am like that??? For that my mom said I should forget about what others say and as long as I know who I am, that's all that matters. In friendships I just need to know when to draw the line. It's more than a person's born nature and the identity. It's the character.
Where do you draw the line?
Sweetest Mr. Moustache 04/04/2016
The Sweetest Pooh has now become a serious Mr. Moustache
It's nicely trimmed, I wonder whether it makes his nose ticklish
But with his moustache he looks so matured and elderly
It is sad his cute facial expressions are now just a memory.
Normally Mr. Pooh's foreign accent becomes a little bit prominent
When some foreign missionaries or pastors visit
So last month I just teased him a little in spoken words
As I felt comfortable with the group and already playing around with words.
No fun with serious people is the lesson I learnt
It made me so upset that he's going to lose his cute British accent
He's adorably cute and funny when he does silly things like that
But I never meant to laugh at him as I don't do that.
I was thinking what I really admired about him even before I rhymed
It was his choice to forgive his dad was what captivated my heart and mind
When he was a seven year old kid his parents were divorced
Though he hated his father, chose to forgive and looked after to his death bed.
He's the first person I came across who forgave a parent who left
I have seen and heard, felt the hurt of my friends who were left
I just cannot handle the separation, the rejection and the pain
I believe that love is not selfish and I don't like causing anyone any pain.
So all of us are waiting for Mr. Pooh's interesting next Biblical lesson.
Pinkish Priest loves to tease him as to what he can do in heaven
Mr. Pooh taught about the Hell in the first part of his presentation
And now again helping at the lyrics to be shown to the congregation
I thought Mr. Pooh is an Alien just like Mr. Bean who drop to the ground
Mr. Pooh is way too decent for a man of his age whom I have been around
Again I thought he's a singing dinosaur who has turned into a baby after birth
As his characteristics are extinct and no way he's from this planet earth.
Mr. Pooh can be very funny through his actions even more than a clown
When I noticed that he was looking at me, he turned around
As if to say 'I like seeing you, but I don't want to look at you'
'You are too small and immature for me to like you'.
Anyway I love the smile as I'm a huge fan of the Sweetest Pooh in the town
Even though he's a peculiar person with a killing frown
Maybe that's how he managed to stay single all this time
I hope he's not annoyed with me for writing this rhyme.
Canvas Expression 4/4/2016
I can't remember when with my mom I went for a wedding celebration
One of my favourite admirable characters' special union
It was grand, beautiful, lovely and wonderful
A blessed moment, a journey that made everything colourful.
My friend, he and I worked together at one time
I translated what I was given and he did the printing at that time
I always thought of him as a 'One cool Christian'
As he's a fantastic, understanding caring leader as a person.
A perfect match made out of love in Heaven
As they both serve in full time Ministry under Heaven
Visiting the prisoners, orphanages and the widows
To touch and change lives, God is opening new doors and windows.
The beautiful petite young woman and her sisters
Sang songs to show their respect and appreciations
As they dedicated their new life before God and the parents
To walk in love and respect as they achieve their inheritance.
Well, after that, me and my mom with another aunt
Went to an Art Exhibition as we were invited by an aunt
As she and some of the artists showcase their 'Canvas Expressions'
Each painting had a story to share and make good impressions.
I liked the art which had so many details of the uphill country with the train
Then Peeping Lara and Hiding Tom, two leopard cubs playing a game
There were some paintings that were not in the book
But I thought all of them were very different from each other and artistic to look.
The colour combinations, the paintings that were painted in oil and water colours
Lovely scenery with beautiful rivers, animals, birds and flowers
To show light and shadow, painted men and women at work
Some were decorated with nice encouraging Bible Quotes in their artwork.
It was after sometime I actually visited a professional art exhibition
Very talented people with loads of patience made their contribution
Soothing the soul as they had taken so much of care on each brush stroke
Capturing moments and putting them into canvas is not a joke.
I remembered at school we were told to draw 'Sigiriya Ladies'
Silly me, went and draw grasses instead of the breasts of the ladies
As I didn't know there was another meaning to that Sinhala word
In English it's like the word 'foot', whether it's the measurment or the body part.
