Wajah Sendu Senja Jakarta

Kutatap langit merah merona bagai gadis remaja dimabuk asmara
Bunga bersemi di lautan kisah sebuah negeri di awan
Meramu masa kecil seekor merpati kala ia merenungkan imaji hayatnya
dan ia kembali pada titik-titik ….

Bus kota meraung mencari mencurangi waktu dan kesempatan
dan motor-motor menderu berpetualang menantang dewa kematian
Masing-masing bertanya, akankah mereka kembali?
Titik-titik … berhamburan memecah pandang

Seorang anak kecil mempertaruhkan nasib di senar-senar sebuah gitar usang
menyanyikan lagu percintaan penuh gairah
Sesekali ia mencari cinta di antara melodi dan kata-kata
dan ia pun kembali pada titik-titik …

Aku memikirkannya
Sesekali, selagi sempat
Sekelebat menyelusup di antara lembar-lembar berita sore
… Aku juga adalah titik-titik

Apple or Orange or…?

If you don’t want apple, choose orange
If you don’t want both, choose another fruit
If you want apple and orange in one fruit, be a scientist and breed one
If you don’t want to do it either, it’s better for you to eat none

Problems Hurricane – Re-assess, Re-evaluate

In life, they say, there are up and downs. Sometimes we’re on top, we get all the fortune and vast amount of opportunities. We are in the party and we rock the party!

However, at any time, the party might end. The wheel rotates and we might stop for a while at the lowest point. Problems keep coming and it seems that they will never go. At this moment, we might experience fatigue or we even burn out. As we grow up as an adult, problems are part of our lives because adulthood comes with responsibility. However, problems, no matter how bad they may seem, they help us redirecting our messy and full-of-distraction life, because at that time, we pause.

In other words,

“When problems come to you endlessly and they blur your sight, it’s time to re-evaluate, which one is your real problem.”

I think that’s how the universe teaches and communicates with us and that’s how we ought to learn.
