Didith Marcelo (January 1,1989 / Phillippines)
The obstinate servant
The One called me, I listen not.
The One gave me demands,
but I did not conform.
I ran, and so the One chased after me.
The One followed me wherever I go,
Though sometime I hid myself,
But the One still can found me.
It's useless to hide, I know!
An obvious reason,
The fact that the One owns everything,
The One knows what I have done.
The One can see everything what is in my thoughts,
Behind, being of my beyond.
The One still provoking me,
A fate that is vested on me,
A calling, I can never cull nor decide.
The One brought me into exile,
And will bring me back to where I destined.
Oh the One you lead me O'er!
You brought me here,
But safe, you want me to Learn, I know!
You called me many times
But I submit not.
I know, I feel your punishing me,
Though I do not believed you will,
And never, but still I feel you were.
If it so, then I must Thank you.
You gave me what is in due measure.
