The Meeting

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Blowing wind in the midst of my solitude

alludes to one title that never have I met

Such a sinful soul needs assurances

upon the worthiness of me before Him

“Know Him by His names, O you who believe..

if you hope to meet Him when the time comes” prophet said.

***

This poem is basically my thought to the last surah of surah Al Kahf though I also have another intention in writing it. At the last surah it is stated that if those believers want to meet Allah afterlife, they have to prostate to Allah only, do not relate in the worship of Allah anyone, and keep doing righteous deeds.

قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ يُوحَىٰ إِلَيَّ أَنَّمَا إِلَٰهُكُمْ إِلَٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۖ فَمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو لِقَاءَ رَبِّهِ فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا وَلَا يُشْرِكْ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ أَحَدًا

Say, “I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord – let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone.”

Al Kahf – 110

Erat Nanti

 

Sepintas

ada perasaan lega

ketika bisa memahami

makna nasihat sang bunda.

Rasa takut itu ada

karena ia adalah pertanda

hati ini masih penuh dengan dosa

Rasa syukur seharusnya terus mengikuti

karena diberi hati yang berempati

oleh Sang Maha Pemberi.

Keyakinan itu selalu ada

bahwa janji Allah itu nyata.

Akan sampai suatu saat nanti

seseorang akan menggenggam tangan ini

dengan erat, lembut, dan pasti

menuntun serta melangkah bersama

menuju telaga kautsar dengan ridho-Nya 

 

 

A Visitor

​Meeting someone in life is something that’s actually astonishing.

That’s because he brings himself with his past, present, and his future.

That’s because someone’s whole life comes along.

The heart is fragile.

Therefore, it might have been broken.

That heart is coming too.

– Because this is My First Life-

 

Hey,

For the past 365 days,

you’ve worked hard.

You’ve learned about 

how to accept your own skin,

to accept the blood flowing throughout your body

and to seek the perfect comforts in your imperfections

You’ve worked hard, and I do appreciate it.

Bless your soul.

24 is your turn.

Women are strong

they stand 

they fight

they endure

for those they love

Women are smart

they teach

they calculate

they appreciate 

for the things they have

Women are beautiful

they preach

they give

they forgive

without asking for return

But,

women are women

In any shape,

in any dress,

in any skin,

deep down they know

they are women,

deep down we know

they are women,

deep down you know

they are women,

and..

deep down he should know

she is a woman

Memories

Memories were made.

Time flies so fast.

Things have changed.

Moments stuck in your mind.

You cannot go back

no need for you to do so.

All you want to do is just

to keep those memories

as precious as they were.

Do you know why?

Because memories are too beautiful to be forgotten.

Because memories are too powerful to be erased.

Because memories are just.. memories

Menuju Tujuan

Tidak. Aku tidak bisa mengambil seribu langkah. Terlalu berat bagiku.
Untuk saat ini aku hanya bisa merangkak perlahan-lahan untuk sampai tujuan.
Perjalananku masih jauh, sangat jauh.
Perjalananku butuh waktu lama, sangat lama, seribu tahun pun belum tentu cukup.
Tapi aku berharap dan aku yakin aku sedang menuju kepada tujuanku.
Karenanya aku ingin menikmati setiap proses yang kutempuh..
Merangkak, berdiri, berjalan, berlari. Ya aku akan belajar.
