Amaze Me – A Poem

How you amaze me
Every day
I think of ways
You give me life and meaning

 

No one who
Could be like you
And not change me

 

How you amaze me
How you amaze me
How  you amaze me

 

I travel through
a black blue sea
until I can be
just one of your days

 

Finding words
Like pulling nerves
Too many and all painful
Just let me be pain free
Once in my life

 

How you amaze me
How you amaze me
How you amaze me

 

Just once in my life
Make me pain free.

 

 

I used to call these my lyrical poems. I suppose all poems are lyrical…with the right accompaniment. What you see is what came out as it came out.

#WednesdayWisdom The Future Voice of a Generation. @realSianMei

Please share this post on your Twitter, Facebook, or wherever appropriate. Reblogging would be great as well. Although, if you don’t do any of the aforementioned, I won’t hold it against you, but I really needed to ask.

Some of you may know about my propensity in my former life for encouraging young people, specifically teens. I was a high school teacher and even the Youth Director at my church. I also supervised and managed dozens, if not hundreds, of college students over the course of a decade in a management job I had as a data analyst.Sian Mei Fashion image.

I don’t really have those opportunities now but I can be supportive in other ways. Back during the early days of my Haiku Challenge I had a partner who helped come up with the words from time to time. Her name was Sian the Haiku Girl.

Well, Sian isn’t a little girl any longer. She’s very much a teen and well, you can just see and hear the rest for yourself.

Sian Mei ImageThis being #WednesdayWisdom, I can’t think of anything more wise to share with you than the talent of Sian Mei and ask that you follow her on her various platforms. Every young talent, young mind, young creative, and young spirit needs the world’s love, support, and encouragement to go for their dreams.

We are so focused on hoping people follow our own Twitters and Instagrams and like our latest whatever we put out there, that we forget sometimes to do the same for those we like. We listen to their music, watch videos, or read posts and we forget to do the clicks at the end, even though we mean to. I do it all the time and often try to remember who the person was so I can go back because I thought what they shared was really funny.

All the voices you hear on her recordings are her own. She does her own harmonies. She hits those high notes and the lows. And she is not electronically engineered to sound amazing. I’ve heard live performances as well, and some of them might just rival the ones below.

I’ll be keeping y’all up to date on her career. I consider her a friend and me as a fan, maybe her biggest.

Here are Sian Mei’s various platforms to follow as well as a SoundCloud song and a Youtube Video to check out.

Sian doesn’t just record in English but Korean as well. The song below doesn’t require Korean to enjoy the sound of her voice and the music.  It’s her cover of the BTS hit Euphoria, more upbeat and you get to actually see her recording her vocals.

The Showcase

The Farmers Wife or shall we call her Mrs Farmer was getting dinner ready at home..It was almost midday and the farmer household was quiet. The oldest of Mrs. F’s six was out in the field with Mr. Farmer and the little ones were at different spots all carrying out their allocated chores after they had come back from school. There was absolutely no dearth for work around the house and no one was too young to do their part.

She moved around the kitchen whilst preparing dinner. The Farmers were having meatloaf that evening and as she heard the kitchen timer ding, using her oven mitts she took out her signature dish out of the oven and slowly placed it on the kitchen counter. As the delicious aroma filled her kitchen, she turned to where the carving knives were placed and she could’nt help feeling a tingling sensation pass…
