Taubat

Duduknya bertelut di kaki sejadah,
kelompangan jiwanya makin terasa;
Di manakah letak duduknya dirinya
dalam saujana kurnian-Nya?

Omelan hati kecilnya
menggoncang tiang fikirannya,
mengacah pendiriannya,
mengganggu gugah resolusinya;
Begitu lemah diri insan sahaya

Ratapnya atas kehinaan dirinya;
Jauh rasanya dari rahmat Tuhan;
Kecelaruan antara nafsu dan rasional
semakin mengusut di sudut hati

Lepaskanlah aku dari belenggu ini;
Aku ingin kembali ke pangkuan-Mu,
berdamping dengan-Mu,
membelai kasih-Mu,
mengucup rahmat-Mu,
memeluk redha-Mu,
menatap cahaya-Mu,
sesungguhnya
aku hanyalah hamba-Mu yang kerdil dan lemah.



note: this is a Malay puisi, and is religiously-themed. Only my second Malay poem with a religious theme. I have yet to write English ones in this genre.

Taming Tigers

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Of Engineering and Life

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.


Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
