The Obstinate Servant - Poem by Didith Marcelo

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.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A true story, there's a person who has been called to served God and she was given many signs an obvious visions that she may need to submit, she hears it often times but she did not listen to it, she was failed to endure the truth, she changed her course and think of its own desire, but she never knew that it will gave her fate that may exclude everything she has. And it's happenning now.
