Bat Mind Return


Batman Returns -- Thanks Google

The animal kingdom
Sought the counsel of the Bat
For the problem that they got
It says the same words and it works.

The Lioness paid a visit,
“I want to divorce my Lion
He doesn’t care for my pride.”
Then the Bat advised…

The Bear paid a visit,
“I don’t want to live any longer
I don’t have my honey anymore.”
Then the Bat advised…

The Ant paid a visit,
“I’m quitting
There’s no way to reach the top of the anthill.”
Then the Bat advised…

The Crab paid a visit,
“I no longer want to follow my dream
What with those crab mentality?”
Then the Bat advised…

The Bumble Bee paid a visit,
“I’m loosing hope
I can’t find job and I don’t want to be a bum.”
Then the Bat advised…

Then one day they all return to Bat
To say thanks for their better life
All because they follow its advice

I visited the Bat too and asked,
“Where do you get that wisdom?”
And it answered, “From my Creator
who told me to hang on and I obey.”

I shared this entry to Idylls For the King and I encourage you all to submit your fiction, poetry and lyrics that glorify God. Go go go for God!

Blessings to everyone as we hang on to Him!

    You are God’s cheerleader and ours too! Loved the bat and the glory to God behind it! Hanging on until your next post . . .:)

      Can’t thank God enough as always Deb! I told Him I want to accept Eden’s invitation and support her so He better give me an idea since I’m not a fiction writer, haven’t written a song nor a seasoned poet. And so came the bat mind and I asked Him again, “Are you sure this is it? What with those excellent entries already shared?” I prayed until I’m comfortable enough to swing the bat. Then I saw a lucky rabbit like it (see the image on the like button?) and so I feel like I hit the home run especially when he advised that there’s no need for the last stanza. I’m blessed by hanging on.

      Deb I said too much and sound silly but I just need to say it, really. Love Him, love you!
