THE SERENADER’S POEM

The pages of the book are limited

But the serenade of my lover is infinite

140 characters was I limited to

yet growth of double is much of a constraint.

Not even enough to admire the pulchritude of her eyes.

Now I see why angels are not in-love nor is there marriage at Home.

For much is the distractions in the timetable of a lover.

I wish the whole earth is the home of patient lovers,

For much joy and peace reside in the heart

Of the one whose long prepared lover is revealed to.

They say “beauty is fading”,

But with your beauty only eyes fade!

As an eagle, my eyes continually behold more beauty.

Kids see beauty but adults conceive beauty

Oh! Greater access to the Light ignites a visionary beauty in your image.

For thought of you I honor my bachelor
With masters in hope and patience
Yet with you, I’m a doctor in contentment

For you are the epitome of true beauty

And your beauty is the light that clears all doubt & darkness.

PARTIAL ANNOTATION

They say beauty is fading,
But with your beauty only eyes fade!
But as an eagle, my eyes continually behold more beauty.
Oh! Greater access to the Light ignites a visionary beauty in your image.
Kids see beauty but adults conceive beauty.

Meaning: If you see beauty with your eyes, beauty will fade away as you grow older because your eyes become dimmer. This explains why people date or get married for some months/years only to separate from each other during moments of trials and challenges – they are kids carried away by physical attractions without conviction. It does not mean that the lady becomes less attractive/beautiful but the guys’ eyes have grown dimmer and since they’re controlled/led by their eyes, they can no longer see the beauty in her.

This is one of the reasons why I am ABSOLUTELY AGAINST CHILD MARRIAGE because something as beautiful as marriage and the outcome (in most cases, pregnancy), which is to be cherished. They may end up destroying both themselves and the babies because they lack the maturity and training to take care of them.

But if you conceive an idea, it only gets better as you grow older with more understanding and translate (give birth) to something much more beautiful. And you will always look for the best ways to nurture the beautiful idea. Think of when a woman conceives a child, she even avoid some her favorite meals – dietary restrictions, just to make sure that the embryo is well nourished to grow to become a beautiful child.

Your beauty is the light that clears all doubt & darkness
[Your beauty – personality, clears the doubt that you’re God’s gift to me and clears darkness(=other girls floating around me). NO Mrs Portiphar.

The conclusion of the matter is that, dont be led by your eyes but rather be led by your conviction

TO MY COY LOVER

Over the years,

I tried expressing myself in my heart.

But my heart is only known by me.

I spoke with my mentor,

Mentor said I have to express it in language.

But I’m sure you will not understand my language.

I thought of showing you signs, But you’re not a Jew.

Constrained by my vocabulary prowess, I tried using English words.

But words cannot truly express my heart.
And words are only meaningful to those to whom understanding is given.

Even when I gather words to say it,

My meaningful words are meaningless to you because your heart is not connected with mine.

Wait! You understand my heart and you are making me go through this agony?

My dear love, but you know that

If I have eternity on earth, I will spend a million years playing scrabble or crossword.

But even the King get only a thousand years.

Hope you see eternity is calling
And we have to yield the Fruits.

I cannot say that I have fallen in love with you

Because loving you is not a temptation that I succumbed to.

If it was so, I probably would have risen again even the seventh time.

Loving you is an integral part of my life.
That’s why I only see myself growing in love for you.
Maybe the metamorphosis is yet to be completed.

There seems to be a million miles between my heart and your heart

But I hope that Love will bridge the gap before perfection.

WatchOut for the ANNOTATIONS as this writeup is specially filled with allusion, imagery and other figurative languages.

DO YOU LOVE ME?

In a society where violence, hatred, lust, abuse (in all forms and types), pride and interclan rivalry are norms. A world, where warriors are celebrated as heroes while lovers are ridiculed as villains.

Maturity is not growing up to live as you were brought-up or thought to but rather, true maturity is growing up to love as you are supposed to irrespective of how you were brought up.

Though I was born into gross hatred, I am deeply grateful to have been conquered with an extravagant love. And so now, my main purpose is to be an Ambassador of Love.

You loving me is not a requirement for my daily life but me loving you is a necessity for my existence.
It is your choice whether or not to love me but it is my obligation and responsibility to love you irrespective of your choice, decision, belief, background, action, or reaction.
I cannot live without loving you because love has become an inherent and integral part of my life and so I cannot decide not to love.

It is so much of a disservice for me to think of not loving you.
As long as you are human, you deserve my love whether or not you feel you need it, is not a factor.

This should be our decision and vision in life. We should make up our minds to love people irrespective of what they have said, planned to do or have done to us. Like Paul of Tarsus said, “Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.”_Romans 12:21 AMPC. Make it a point of duty to show love to the people that you are privileged to come in contact with.

Whenever someone tells me “Christian, I don’t like you”
In my head: that doesn’t count
My response is: That’s fine, thanks for telling me. I love you anyways.
Because my love for people is not a function of their love for me but rather a spillover of the Extravagant Love of Jesus Christ for me (He loves me passionately and personally despite my erroneous thoughts, ignorance, constant antagonism and disobedience to His Love).

This is why like Paul of Tarsus, “I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.” _Acts 24:16 NKJV. You have to make a conscious effort to live peaceably with everybody, as much as it is within your ability to do so. You may not be able to control the actions or reactions of people towards you but with love, you are able to influence their decisions consciously or unconsciously.

In conclusion,

The more you grow in love, the freer and more joyous you will become, because love brings healing to your soul by binding the open wounds in your heart.
Therefore, loving others (especially those who have hurt you in the past) is a true test of your love for yourself.

I love you all! 🌟
