They told us not to show our sadness,
but to show our ambitions.

So this is our generations,
the generations who fight for a fame, not a purpose.
To earn respect and high self-esteem.
This is how they fed their egos. 

But they all are once a soul with a pure heart,
along the way those heart were destroyed by heartache, rejections, and disappointments.
So who does that and who's to blame? 
These people lost their fight,
their own war.

And here is my naked heart,
sharing every sadness I collected,
and again struggling to restart.
None of this are expected.

To all the one who left every single year,
Cheers to each one of you who managed to destroyed a heart.
You have that talent of being a liar and opportunist,
I thanked you for all the priceless journey.

Here is when things begin and end.

 (If only the World is much more peaceful, quiet, mystery and private.
I'm dying to move into the woods and be gone. Let the loneliness do the job.)

This is a documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand about Human, volume 2. 
Check out the whole volume on Youtube.

We forget that there are human around the world who are struggling with poverty, war,
and love, mixed with moments of happiness and sorrow.

Be grateful for what you have.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. 
And if you can't help them,
 at least don't hurt them." - Dalai Lama

“At first you see an open wound, infected and disastrous.
 It breaches chaos and death,
 it cries to be reborn.
 Look closely at the open wound, 
and you can see the past, 
take a closer look and you’ll see the future." 

- Stanley Greene (Photojournalist)

Thank you for the wound.

Weird how our minds can mislead us.
How can I become so weak and strong at the same time?

I'm wondering,
what and who I am?
why am I here?
what is the purpose of life?
why am I experiencing the same pattern of life?
what sort of test that I need to take and pass these grade of life?

Too much disappointment to swallow,
too much energy wasted begging for a STAY,
tired of collecting scars,
tired of being emotionally self-reliant.

You own a colourful chapters of life,
while I'm still here trying to end an endless chapter,
with dry tears and a war in the mind,
crawling through dreadful shadows.

The only person that can kill or save me,

I am my worst enemy.

"Your heart is a polished mirror.
You must wipe it clean of the veil of dust which has gathered upon it,
because it is destined to reflect the light of divine secrets.

If only the light of divine secrets shines upon it,
the night sky of secrets is lit with a thousands of stars,
and by the stars, 
you find your way.

It is not the stars that guide us but the divine light."
- Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani

Bersih 4.0

Thursday, 20 August 2015

I walk around and try to keep up the pace,
how strange every step I take,
feel so further away,
and everything look so grey.

A heart with a heavy burden,
without carrying any hopes,
cause this is the war I can't win,
and I surrender myself to FATE.

Always physically strong,
spiritually lost and found,
mind with a restless heart,
but I know my worth.

It's been a month full with surprises,
life is so beautiful yet so mysterious,
I'm going to return home and enjoy the silence in my own desire.

God blesses and prospers those who put their trust in Him.

The one kind we all know
happens at night,
when we awake in fear
from a terrible sight,
One thing we recall,
A haunted heart never rests well.

"Putting my hand in someone else's has always been my definition of happiness.
Before I fall asleep, often - in that small struggle not to lose consciousness and go into the greater world - often, before I get up the courage to go into the vastness of sleep,
I pretend that someone has my hand in theirs, 
and then I go,
go to that enormous absence of form that is sleep.
And when even after that I don't have courage, 

- Clarice Lispector

( Repost quote from Adriana Zehbrauskas )

"He gave you another sorrow instead of (your) sorrow, 
so that you might not grieve at what had escaped you nor at what befall you.
Then after sorrow He sent down security upon you."

Nothing in this world worth having comes easily,
So much pain to bare,
Head and heart bursting out along the way,
Sometimes it is not fare,
But there's a price for a lasting happiness.

I am somewhere between being within and without,
between sorrow and being content,
between being complete and torn into pieces.

I am a fine light rain that falls in the evening hours.
Evening serenity.

I spent my past year as a ghost,
Crawling through shadows and tried so hard to get lost,
There is no regret,
only secret.

The world we live in is just an illusion.
The bitter and egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains,
As for me, 
Still clinging to the cliff.

Should I let it go or should I save myself?

In misery we seem aware of our existence,
While in pleasure we seem to forgot our Creator.
We're all searching,
For the righteous heart and soul.

My darling soul,
May His love bring you happiness,
And may His love save you from despair.

" Rings the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering,
There is crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in."
- Leonard Cohen.

Now that you're older,
The nights are so much colder.

Hate is poison and enemy,
Love is remedy and warm on the coldest night.
Hope is a ghost in the deepest of memories.
Hope is a breeze that brings me back to dry land.

Teardrops falling.
Memories calling.

It is hard to see inside yourself when you can't see your way out.
Hard to find an answer when the question won't come out.
I don't know what I'm searching for,
I should know by now.

When I'm lost in my imagination,
I'm having a private conversation with myself.,
War is in the mind.

So I talk to keep the silence from my ears,
and I laugh because I'm so close to tears.

With lessons come learning and pleasure comes with pain.
Hearts won't buy love nor will they sell.

Now that I'm wiser,
I don't compromise.

Soul shrink day by day,
A year gone by and still wait to be found,
Oh God catch me,
Im falling apart whenever I let you go.

Min 10.55
" And here is my idea of romance.
You will soon be dead,
life will sometimes seem long and tough and GOD, it is tiring.
And you will sometimes be happy and sometimes sad,
and then you will be old and then you will be dead,
There is only one sensible thing to do with this empty existence,
and that is fill it.
Not feel it. FILL IT.
And in my opinion until i change it,
life is best filled by learning as much as you can, 
taking bride and whatever you will doing,
having compassion,
sharing ideas,
being enthusiastic,
and then there is love and travel,
wine and sex,
art and kids,
giving and mounting, climbing.
But you know all that stuff already.
It is incredible exciting thing this one,
meaningless life of yours.

After all , we all have been blessed by HIM.
