Wake Up

Wake up!

You could make another excuse, as always, but not this time!
The world’s not gonna wait on you.

Say you made a mess. So what? Everybody did.
Say your self-confidence damaged at best. So what? Feel small will lead you nowhere.

Sometimes the path ahead got no light.
Sometimes being in status quo feels right.
But no! You can’t let fear owns you.

You’ve got to find what you love.
If you have, pursue it.
If you haven’t, never settle.

Wake up, you! Just wake up.
This time. For yourself. For your current family and one in the future.

Villain.

“Without the villain, we don’t suffer. Hero won’t arise.
Thus, I stand up and be one.
Cause sometimes, most of us need a hero, or need to be a sufferer. Hence, we could realize, how many friends and fans we have. How precious we all are.”

Malam Masih Panjang

Kadang malam tak terselami
Terlalu luas, sekaligus penuh misteri
Memiliki tengah, namun tak bertepi
Juga terang, meski tanpa matahari

Ya, malam masih panjang
Selalu ada kemarin, untuk dikenang sebelum menghilang
Pun masih ada esok, yang tak pernah lelah datang
Sebenarnya.. Adakah guna aku berlantang?

Ah, malam masih panjang
Yang jalang masih telanjang
Yang malang masih terajang
Dan aku, masih mengerang?

Sakit? Atau Nikmat?
Ah, keduanya kadang tak bersekat
Yang kutahu aku ini bukan malaikat
Meski kadang kau perlakukan tanpa martabat

Ya, ya, ya…
Malam masih panjang, meski hanya sesaat.
