~ Acceptance ~

Acceptance ..........

(The only person on earth you need to be accepted by is yourself.)

When you get what you want in the struggle for the self
And the world makes you king and queen for the day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that person has to say!
For it isn't your father, mother, friend or host,
Whose judgement upon you must pass;
The person whose verdict counts the most

Is the one staring from the glass.
Some may think you are a wonderful chum,
And call you as radiant as the sun;

But if the person in the mirror says you're dumb,
And you can't look him in the eye - you're done.
He is the one to please, never mind the rest,
For he will be with you until the end,
And you will have passed your most difficult test
If the person in the mirror becomes your friend.

You may fool the whole world along the years,
And get pats on your back as the ages you pass,
But your final reward will be hell and tears,
If you've cheated the person in the glass.

~ I Walk Alone ~

I walk alone..............

I walk alone
no one is there
the steps guide me
i don't know where

Alone in silence my heart sinks
Alone at the wayside I wonder
With heart stirred that refuses to be reined
Will the world listen?
Does the world care?

Yet in solemn I struggle and strive
For a bright tomorrow and beautiful dawn
I sing my heart and trot with joy
Cause this dreadful night shall come to pass
The dark curtain, surely will rise

Break the soil at the dry riverbed
Till in earnest from dawn to dusk
For time to plant tears are long gone
Undo the ill of our broken bond
Break the chain and never look back

Give back yourself - Your old self again
Embrace the gift - The gift of life
The smile - The laughter,
Sing with joy - Sing with pride

~ Alone In The Rain ~

Alone In The Rain..........

Standing out here alone in the rain
Trying to wash away all of my pain
Drowning the sorrows
Hiding from my nightmares and fears

The rain just gets harder and faster
I hide from it out here in the wet and cold
And I suffer from the things I've been told

The rain follows where tears once went
The rain like the pain shows no repent
I suffer for everything I am deep inside
And I remember the tears I once cried

I look around and see puddles of rain
Getting deeper and deeper like the pain
The puddles that used to be puddles of tears
The feelings and thoughts from all my fears

I can't explain to you the way I feel
And maybe by standing here I'll heal
I'll somehow wash away some of the pain
And I'll just stand here alone in the rain.

~ A Moment to Reflect ~

A Moment to Reflect ...........

Walking into the sunlight filled field
With the weeping willow slowly dancing in the warm breeze,
The lake smooth on the surface even though
Underneath life flourishes,
Off in the distance there is a deer running back into the woods.
Always dreaming of the simplicity of that life,

Sitting in this picture perfect landscape thinking to myself.
Why must we make life so difficult?

Every once in awhile you need to stop and enjoy the scenery,
Because life isn’t about
how much power you have
how many friends you have,

Life is about trying to find what makes you happy
And not getting caught up in the everyday nonsense.

This field put everything into perspective,
If you rush through life and never stop to look around
Have you ever really lived?

~ Pure Devotion ~

Pure Devotion............

Can love be like silent tears
which explode when they reach the floor?
Or like a thundering storm in the ocean
which smashes itself to death on a rocky shore?

Or like a cold drink to be swallowed and tasted
that makes you feel a joy until you wake up in pain?
Or like a broken cup that cuts when picked up
but has a beauty that makes hearts sing?

~ There is no life, without its share of pain ~

There is no life, without its share of pain.................

There is no life without its share of pain,
Nor can you love and not feel agony,
A need whose hunger drives you near insane,
A state in which you must, but cannot be.

There is no cure, nor anything to say,
Nor any aspirin for unhappiness.
Other friends and loves will come your way
And then pass on through death or faithlessness.

And so if you would ever dwell in joy,
You must embrace the agony of sorrow.
Time will all you love and need destroy,
But you will heal to love again tomorrow

~ Being ~


It is the letting go of all the
the must's,
the have-to's,
the have-nots,
the cannots,
the doubts
and the guilt.

It is allowing your thoughts to come forth -
without judgement.

It is allowing yourself to feel -
without judgement.

It is allowing yourself to do what you want -
without judgement.

It is allowing yourself to be who you are -
without judgement.

When you allow yourself to be,
You find
Peace, Freedom, Love and Joy
Within you.

~ Time Will Only Tell ~

Time Will Only Tell.........

All my life,
I've been searching

All my life
I've been waiting

And all this of this time,
I've waited so long,
but I guess that's just part,
of lifes beautiful song.

Cause if there's a beginning,
there's got to be an end,

and if there's a love,
there's got to be a heart to mend.

Life has got its problems,
and its solutions too,
there's many problems in life,
solutions-very few.

But not everything is easy,
and sometimes you have to wait,

And in my life,
another lesson I've learned well,
you must wait and see what happens,

cause time will only tell.

~ Don’t be the prisoners of past ~

Don’t be the prisoners of past...........

time never stops, it is the ace
it will as always run very fast
at least, try to attain its pace
this life is gift to you
chance it is not the first
dear, it is the last
so, live your present
don’t be the prisoners of past

Present is now and for short
memories are limitless and vast
as you will enter your thought
here your present will pass

I am not telling to forget what happened
I am not telling to leave the memories
but neither regret nor try them to recast
I mean don't be the prisoners of past

Everyday some incidents ends
and the new one starts
someone in some moments comes too close
and in the next they depart
Except it, its nature and forget the pain
neither surrender nor stop the life’s cart
no matter how you move it-slow or fast
but don’t be the prisoners of past.

~ Love Is A Lie ~

Love is a lie......

Thought I was in love once -
Only for a moment.
Just when I thought the time had come,
The feeling went away.

Guess I was just lonely -
Wanted a man.
Guess I'll just be patient -
I'll try to, if I can.

Love is a lie....

I listen to the poets,
Their stories don't come true.
I used to hope they would,
But I'll have to change my view.

The poets show us paradise
But life's a bitter pain -
Get caught up in their fairy tales
Then reality hits again.

Love is a lie......

I've been looking for a gold mine -
Have I passed the silver by?
I've been watching for a sign -
For stars to fall from the sky.

I've been looking for true love -
Have my standards been too high?
I'm standing out here in the desert -
Love has passed me by.

Love is a lie.....

And as I stand here lonely
I'll try not to cry.

Love is a lie.......

~ Ya Ilahy ~

Ya Ilahy...........

tahun berganti tahun
Sekian begitu..
Umurku berkurang...
Namun amalku masih belum bertambah…
Solatku masih belum khusyuk pada-Mu..
Maksiatku masih begitu..
Hatiku masih leka menghitung nikmat dunia..

Ya Ilahy..

Mengapakah aku masih belum mahu…
Mensyukuri nikmat-Mu?
Mensyukuri nikmat hidup untuk benar-benar bertaubat pada-Mu..
Sebelum nafasku berakhir..
Nafas yang belum tentu beakhir dengan Husnul Khatimah
atau Su’ul Khatimah…

Aku takut Ya Allah…
Takut pada-Mu..
Takut pada murka-Mu…
Takut pada azab-Mu..

Ya Ilahy yang amat aku Cintai…

Aku tidak mahu taubatku menjadi taubat orang-orang yang lalai..
Aku ingin inilah taubatku yang bermakna untuk seluruh hidupku..
Sebelum magrib-Mu tiba..
Sebelum umurku berkurang..
Sebelum nyawaku berakhir...
Sebelum nafasku terhenti..
Sebelum hatiku mengeras…
Aku tak sanggup Ya Allah..
Kehilangan Cinta-Mu bisa buat aku merana...

Ya Ilahy.....

Izinkanlah aku merasa sedikit nikmat menyintai-Mu..
Sepertimana orang-orang soleh menyintai-Mu…
Rukuk dan sujud merasa adanya Engkau..
Aku damba cinta-Mu yang Maha Agung..
