Degradation

ceramic2_rect540I have deep concern to people today. Creativity degradation in writing caused by excessive propensity for gadgets. Most of people no longer write about their life experiences in the diary. Unfortunately, the trend today is to write something private on social media, then it published to anyone even strangers. Some people act like celebrities which is their daily activities should be announced to public. Now seems like private lives work properly as public consumption. Whereas there are not much essences of what they wrote about, mostly just carelessly protesting (not on target), blaming, or complaining about relationship, traffic jam, goverment etc rather than posting useful information or writing helpful articles. The most worrying is when two people do not see eye to eye as they’re talking, one or maybe both of them more focused on gadgets.  I guess respect has been slacked.

Farewell

This is the third time I’ve lost my lovely hamsters. The first  died in June 16, 2010 at 5 months old. Her name is Chaca. The second died in March 22, 2013 at 3 years old because of diabetes. His name is Benyut. The third died yesterday June 05, 2013 at also 3 years old because he’s too old. His name is Bawor. Now, i have just one hamster left. She’s Banchu, and I promise to treat her more and more carefully than ever.

It’s too sad to see the way my hamsters died, on the other side i don’t wanna see them more suffer. Yesterday 12 AM, i was on his side when he was dying.  It’s very pathetic after 3 years we’ve been together. I wish God to put you all in heaven. Thank you for accompany me all this time. Love you all dear😦

Dilemma

dilemma-213562

the same tremor in chest
as never could be stopped though both far apart
one was tied to another by knot of chemistry
circumstances led them to unity
nature swept away the whole differences
how two soul could be reconcilable was unquestionable
stumbling block was their only big barrier that couldn’t be touched
keep taking effort was too much danger
becoz ties could be scattered broken

 

Ocean Heart

blue-heart

Woman’s heart like the ocean
Cannot measured how deep or wide it is
She can keep everything alone for thousand years
No one can even seen, no one knows
She may look beautiful on the outside
But who knows if her heart is blue

If you ask her “are you okay?”
She will say “yes” for sure
But if you believe it, you are blind
It’s not the way she describes her feeling honestly
All is in her eyes and eyes cannot lied
She does it to make everything around her “okay”
Women are always want to protect someone she loved
Doesn’t care if it makes her sad

Some people think women are weak
People can judge through her tears that almost always streaming down the cheeks
For women, tears is a gift granted by God to relieve burden

If she said “Listen to me” then just listen to her
She doesn’t need you to solve her problem
Because women always know what to do when her feeling gets better
Just give her your shoulder and listen…
