UNCONQUERABLE: My Own Version of INVICTUS

Update | Cancel

Posted on May 11,2014

I wrote this poem some three years ago before my Surgery and Radioactive Iodine, I didn't know anything about Jesus, about His healing power yet He had been with me even when I was not even thinking of Him, I relied on my own strength, trusted my own not knowing there is a greater God after all who can heal all kinds of diseases.

Through the ups and downs,
    over  the rough and ease of life

Remarkably enduring people whose setbacks turned to be an ambition
    remained strong and unshaken

In the midst of all nerve-wracking fiasco
    remained to be holding on to the myriad dreams

Unsought and unasked yet their hearts are filled with so much joy
    for the magnitude of their hardships corresponds to their hearts' desires

Moving, Steering, Moving forward to the direction known as success
    no hesitation, no surrender, no retreat until victory is attained

Prevailing 'til the end of time, 'Tis a battle I want to win, 'Tis a battle I shall win
    A battle where no one gets hurt, no pain all but gain

Havoc is everywhere, And hope is power
    Two confounding options I shall revere.

And I shall use these means to become stronger and emerge a winner
    I shall not fear!  I shall not fear!

No suffering will ever be worth it without overcoming
    In life, we all have to fight instead of crying and whining

To the cancer cells growing in my neck, to the cancer cells which make my life even more worthwhile
    I shall fight, I shall win and I shall stand with a smile.

 

Now that I am a born again Christian, here's my own version of INVICTUS (Unconquerable)

PSALM 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation—

    whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life—

    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me

    to devour me,

it is my enemies and my foes

    who will stumble and fall.

Though an army besiege me,

    my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

    even then I will be confident.

 One thing I ask from the Lord,

    this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

    all the days of my life,

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

    and to seek him in his temple.

For in the day of trouble

    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;

he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent

    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted

    above the enemies who surround me;

at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;

    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;

    be merciful to me and answer me.

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”

   Your face, Lord, I will seek.

Do not hide your face from me,

    do not turn your servant away in anger;

    you have been my helper.

Do not reject me or forsake me,

    God my Savior.

Though my father and mother forsake me,

    the Lord will receive me.

Teach me your way, Lord;

    lead me in a straight path

    because of my oppressors.

Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

    for false witnesses rise up against me,

    spouting malicious accusations.

I remain confident of this:

    I will see the goodness of the Lord

    in the land of the living.

Wait for the Lord;

    be strong and take heart 

    and wait for the Lord.

Amen Sis Magic. we are TRIUMPHANT in Christ!!!

Isaiah 40:30-33 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

In Christ we have victory.

God bless!

Yes Thank you Rey and Ellen,

We are VICTORIOUS. Jesus did it for us.
