i’m off for a much-needed getaway this weekend. destination? a certain island offshore Terengganu, with a bunch of monkeys colleagues from work. we’ve been planning this for months, and the timing is somewhat perfect, as God knows i needed a break. oh them beaches and sands and boundless sea horizon that goes as far as the eye can see.. i need that!!!

Ramadhan is imminent again… and this time i’m actually really looking forward to it. this time of year has always been quite sentimental to me, for reasons i’m not really sure of.

and Merdeka has actually come early, on the 26th August. (if you know what i mean)

sometimes, it felt like the sky just crashed down onto me and brought me to my knees. like today. there were days when i felt like my legs were trembling so hard i could barely even walk. like today. some days were just so dark and unrelenting, it suffocates me. like today. heart’s been shredded into tiny pieces, just that. again. just your routine, run-of-the-mill, heartache.

which makes me even more proud, of what i’ve achieved this past few years. my successes at work, studies and life. i did it, eventhough some days the sky just crashed down mercilessly. i braved it, eventhough some days i could barely stand, let alone walk. oh i’m made of steel, i am. i’m always strong enough for this.

but i’m lying if i say it doesn’t kill me. i died, every time. it sucked the life out of me, every single time. but i’ve learned that to love anything is to accept that it might be gone, but we still keep on believing anyway, no matter what. tanpa mengharapkan balasan.

faith is humbling. it is content, in every sense of the word. this is a toast to me, a Superman.

cheers.

you’re a few years overdue
i spent them waiting here for you
now your charity’s refused
i can name a penance for abuse

DO HOPE I WON’T
LEARN TO MAKE
THE SAME MISTAKES
THAT YOU WOULD
MAKE ME AWARE
THAT ONLY FEAR
MY ONLY HOPE
IS LETTING GO

went on a limb for you
capsized when I turned twenty two
did it burn as bad for you?
no bottle serves to soothe my wounds

DO HOPE I WON’T
LEARN TO MAKE
THE SAME MISTAKES
THAT YOU WOULD
MAKE ME AWARE
THAT ONLY FEAR
MY ONLY HOPE
IS LETTING GO
