Garis lurus antara biru

Garis lurus pemisah antara biru
Buih putih bersatu menjadi satu
Deru ombak dan angin bayu
Itu yang selalu dirindu

Di depan tak terlihat penghujung
Di atas tak tercapai oleh tangan
Meski berkali dihempas ombak
Ke bawah tetap kaki berpijak
Menongkah arus melawan angin
Mahunya maju bukan lagi ke belakang

Langit… laut… ombak… dan angin
Melerai segala simpulan
Meniup pergi segala sepi
Mengukuh kecintaan dalam hati
Pada yang satu
Juga pada kamu
Itu yang selalu dirindu

Garis lurus tak berpenghujung
Yang memisah birunya laut dan langit
Yang menyaksi setia ombak
Terusan berlari menyapa pantai
Tanpa pernah ada jemu

Hanya pada yang satu
Juga kerana yang satu
Itu yang selalu dirindu

(Pasti kembali)

Path & light

To learn is a life long commitment. You’ll never know/learn enough. The dark path that you thought had brought you down can lead you to the most beautiful things in your life. It is fascinating to see how dreams transform into reality and how much you can achieve in the most difficult times when you least expect them. Trust your instinct, put your heart and mind into it… and venture down that that path with hope and courage. That’s the beacon that will not lead you astray. Look hard and follow the light. That beacon’s light is always there but sometimes you are distracted by the scenery around you making you forget its call. Seek for the light… dare yourself to dream, and dream big. Trust me, you’ll get there…

Have I found mine? I dare not say…

Grieve no more


I learned to ignore

I learned to keep a distance

I allowed myself to grieve

I did not resist

I broke down and cried

Until I suffocated no more

Until I was able to breathe

Until my heart told me that I was ready

To embrace my vulnerability

To embrace my life

And to get back to where I left off

Things will get better, I will get better, that I will always believe.
