The hurtful things he says

And my unspoken defense is just this.

I was never one for pretenders.
Everything I tried to be, just wouldn't settle in.

If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me?


Can I clear my conscience, if I'm different from the rest?
Do I have to run and hide?

My Antinatalism Anthem

by Imagine Dragons

When the days are cold, and the cards all fold
And the saints we see are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood's run stale

I wanna hide the truth, I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside, there's nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come


At the curtain's call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave 
And the masquerade will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come


They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Incredible thoughts

I have this REALLY interesting colleague who always says magical things. This is basically my face every time she says something:

She's been entertaining me from May 2014. And her latest pearl of thought is so incredible that I can't resist the temptation to share it here:

"so cool, no wonder they still enjoy working under great pressure of productivity."

So cool
                           No wonder how
they still enjoy working
under great pressure of productivity.

Under great pressure of productivity.
Under great pressure of productivity.
Under great pressure of productivity.

A t-shirt material right there:

Some of her other incredible thoughts include, but not limited to:
  •  The meaning of STD does not make sense
  • Google search is down (but it's ok if you turn it off then on again)

Everybody's Fool


Perfect by nature, icons of self indulgence.
Just what we all need, more lies about a world that
Never was and never will be. Have you no shame? Don't you see me? 
You know you've got everybody fooled.
Look here she comes now. Bow down and stare in wonder.
Oh, how we love you. No flaws when you're pretending.
But now I know she
Never was and never will be. You don't know how you've betrayed me. 
And somehow you've got everybody fooled.
Without the mask where will you hide? Can't find yourself lost in your lie.
I know the truth now. I know who you are.
And I don't love you anymore.
It never was and never will be. You don't know how you've betrayed me.
 And somehow you've got everybody fooled.
  Never was and never will be. You're not real and you can't save me.
 And somehow now you're everybody's fool.

Bidadari Pagi / Dewi Malam

Bidadari Pagi/Dewi Malam
Puisi dan lagu dari film 'Jomblo'.
A poem and a song from the Indonesian movie 'Jomblo'.

Bidadari Pagi

Engkau bidadari pagi
Engkau ratu di hari Rabu
Engkau adalah embun yang hendak melahirkan…
dan menetes di saat mentari bersemi
Engkau adalah sepi yang datang…
diantara petir badai menderu
Engkau adalah sejuk ….
yang angin bawa di februari
Engkau adalah sinar yang mentari
lahirkan setelah fajar pergi
Engkau adalah tangis yang ku bawa
ketika membayangkan kita berdua
Engkau adalah…
Engkau adalah alasan….
mengapa duniaku….ADA

Dewi Malam

Dewi malam ku pinta
Seorang wanita pada pasir
Dengan butirnya
Wajahmu terukir
Pergi menghamba jawab
Pada air di dalamnya
Ku rasa hangatmu mengalir
Kau datang dengan angin tak terasa
Kau datang menghembus membelai muka
Kupinta pintamu tuk beri nama
Dengar mereka sebut namamu

Dewi malamku, Dewi malamku

Mengasihimu dan menyayangimu
Aku rela pergi jauh tuk itu
Aku mencintaimu dan memilikimu
Aku rela mati rasakan itu semua
Rasakan itu semua

Деревья (Derevya) by Vintage

Твой кумир – полубог.
Он придумал тебя, и ты поверил
В пустоте, между строк
Ты коснулся любви, и она сгорела.

Картинки, машинки, бумажки.
А где настоящая жизнь?
Ты утром проснёшься однажды.
Скажи мне...

Расскажи мне, где ты был?
Где ты был, когда на Земле любовь жила?
Где ты был, когда я одного тебя ждала?
Когда деревья были большими,
Когда все мальчики становятся мужчинами...

Бей меня, мой сатир.
Только я прожила чуть больше жизни.
И держу этот мир,
Как ребёнка в руках, а ты отец лишь на словах!

Картинки, машинки, бумажки.
А где настоящая жизнь?
Ты утром проснёшься однажды.
Скажи мне...

Расскажи мне, где ты был?
Где ты был, когда на Земле любовь жила?
Где ты был, когда я одного тебя ждала,
Когда деревья были большие...
Когда все мальчики становятся мужчинами,
И не играют больше в гонки и в войну,
Не разбивают на осколки тишину
И целый мир они держат на ладони?

На ладони...
Когда деревья были большие...
Когда все мальчики становятся мужчинами,
Мужчинами...

Love Guru

The last rule of guru is to rid [the] student the need of [a] guru.
-Guru Tugginmybuddha.

Tumble out of bed and I stumble to the kitchen.

Pour myself a cup of ambition.

Yawning, strecthing, try to come to life.
-Guru Pitka, '9 to 5'

Red

Here's a song by Jordan Catalano, written either about the girl he's been liking... or about his car.

I was going nowhere, going nowhere fast.
Drowning in my memories, living in the past.
Everything looks dark till I found her.
She's all that I need now, that's what I said.
Oooh ooh ooh, I call her red.
I call her red.

She's my shelter from the storm.
She's the place to rest my head.
Late at night she keeps me safe and warm.
I call her red.. I call her red.

A call to arms..

Soundtrack of the day: A Call to Arms by 30 Seconds to Mars

This is a call to arms, gather soldiers
Time to go to war
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

For one, I've finally decided which song from 30 Seconds to Mars is my first favorite. Despite of everything that I've said about their new album, 30 Seconds to Mars is still inspiring for me. I guess that's what it is with good stuffs, you have to savour them first to be able to truly enjoy them ;)

Did you ever believe?
Were you ever a dreamer?
Ever imagine heart open and free?
Did you ever deny? Were you ever a traitor?
Ever in love with your bloodless business?

Yup, inspiring me. In this dull life, in an even duller world. With the dullest people. Don't get me wrong, I have few great friends, the wisest people you'll ever meet. But compare to others that surrounding me, they are so few and so far.

I've always been a depressed girl by nature. But lately, it's all coming back to me. Like reading too much Ecclesiastes. Feel sick of everything. Where's the promise of "your tears will dry, you'll soon be free to fly"^? It doesn't exist. Just a well-worn dream.

You do this, do that, this, that, this, back again. Like a cassette being played once too often. Thinking those things will make life easier, yourself likable, your dreams one step closer. But nuh-uh. You only one step closer to the end of your life, or the end of the world, or whichever is closer.
And, bad news, things will only get worse the further you go from the time you were born.

Ever want to be free?
Do you even remember?
Want to be God, the Devil like me?
Ever want to just stop? Do you want to surrender?
Or fight for victory?

Good questions. Everyone wants to be free. But few remember.
Look around. No need to be too far. Look at the mirror. Do you feel bitter inside? Lonely? Unloved? Why?
I know few of my friends that have blogs. Most of the content of their blogs are about disappointment, bitterness, anger, hatred. Why?
Because few remember. Of their dreams. Of their purposes in life. Of their motivation. Of the answer of what should they fight for.
But how should we remember, when this life force us to only remember about one thing: MONEY? Gosh, I can go on and on about that.

Darkness falls, but here comes the rain
To wash away the past and the names
Darkness falls, here comes the rain
To end it all, the blood and the game

But everything has an end, right? Based on some beliefs, the world will come to an end. The old will pass, the new comes. Tears, pain, sadness will be wiped away.
Well, bad news again, though, it's only for few chosen ones.

Far, far away in a land that time can't change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold
Far, far away in a land that time can't change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold

Lesson to learn (for myself too): keep fighting. The battle isn't over yet.
If you think you're at the bottom of the pit, take heart, because when you're at the bottom of the pit, there's only one way left to go: UP.

This is a call to arms... brothers and sisters

Who am I?



Who am I? That the Lord of all the earth, would care to know my name, would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I? That the bright and morning star, would choose to light the way, for my ever wandering heart.
Bridge: Not because of who I am, but because of what you've done. Not because of what I've done, but because of who you are.
Chorus: I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind. Still you hear me when I'm calling. Lord, you catch me when I'm falling, and you've told me who I am.
I am yours. I am yours.
Who am I? That the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again.
Who am I? That the voice that calmed the sea, would call out through the rain, and calm the storm in me.
Whom shall I fear? Whom shall I fear? I am yours.. I am yours..
" 'Cos your greed sold me out of shame.."
--Christina A.
what a pathetic person he who thinks money can buy everything
equally sad, if not sadder, he who thinks money can give him rights to do everything
I'm not a princess. This isn't a fairytale..
- Swift

I've heard it few times (just a few times, cos I'm not as strikingly beautiful as I want to) in my life: You're so pretty, you'll go far in your life.
Not always the exact same words, but there's this same message: Your pretty face will get you somewhere far.
Well, that's rather irrelevant, isn't it? Can anyone be success just because of her face --in its literal meaning?

Leave Out All the Rest


I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared.
But no one would listen, 'cause no one else cared. After my dreaming, I woke with this fear. What am I leaving when I'm done here?
So if you're asking me, I want you to know...
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done. Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed. Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty. Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest.
Don't be afraid. I've taken my beating, I've shed but I'm me. I'm strong on the surface, not all the way through. I've never been perfect, but neither have you.
Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well. Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself. I can't be who you are.
I can't be who you are.
"I know that God must love me cos He sent you to me..." ^^


Every Little Things He Does

Soundtrack of the day: Every Little Thing You Do by Westlife

Bolt: Am I missing anything, Rhino?
Rhino
: Just the knowledge that every minute spent in your company becomes the new greatest minute of my life!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Hope everyone had a good one (if not great!)
I sure did have a great one ^^

Gosh! I still can't believe it!

Remember the guy I told you about? Well, he told me that he likes me, 4 days ago!
It's a long exciting memorable lovely story, but I don't want to tell it here :p Let it be a private one.


It's insane... It's another dream comes true... He actually likes me back, can you believe it?! So yeah, yesterday we spent the Love Day together.

It's a great feeling, being loved is. Like a Westlife's song says: I never knew that love could felt so good.. It's been so long that I was made to believe that I don't deserve to be loved. And now, here's an angel comes along and confessed he adores me.


So, here's something for everyone out there: 

NEVER EVER believe if someone told you you are not good (or pretty or rich or whatever) enough to be loved. Give that person a slap on the face and just leave --even if it's your own mom who told you that
(okay, I don't really mean 'slap' slap, but you know, just ignore those kind of nasty sayings).



After so long, now I understand the concept of being loved. It's great; it's not only making me ready to love back, to love more, and to forgive. That's right, to forgive.

Love needs no reason. Look around and think about it. Have you seen someone who's "not pretty" but is happily married? Have you seen a disabled child, but still loved by his/her parents? There are so many proofs that love is unreasonable (needs no reason, I mean :p).

Of course, I'm aware that who knows how long this will last? Honestly, I'm pessimistic. He needs to do his things after graduation, and me, mine. But let's not care about that now. At the moment, let's just feel what we feel...
"You cut me deep and the pain is all I want to feel..."
Soundtrack of the day: Fighter by Christina Aguilera

Thank you for not believing in me; you make me learn to believe in myself...
"After all you've put me through, you'd think I despise you.
But in the end, I wanna thank you.
Cos you make me damn much stronger."

DRAFT!

Soundtrack of the day: Butterfly Cry by Kerli
"Affair of the heart is the undoing of a hero.."

When I'm not, you are.
When I do, you don't.
You're here, but you're so far away.
Within range but unreachable.

I try to deny, but how is it supposed to work?
Even though I don't ever say it, I still feel it.
This feeling is like a butterfly.
So fragile yet so strong.
The urge is so strong I'm suffocated.
Yet it's so fragile I know it'll die soon.
It'll die before we're able to comprehend.
Even before we realize it ever existed.

How good will its life be if it doesn't have to feel guilty
when it does the things that brings
happiness for it.
How should anyone understand?
The sadness of the butterfly.
Cos its existence just another one
In this universe.
Alone.
Ordinary.
In vain.
