spread my wings

i've met so many great people
those with in-depth knowledge
so humble and sincere
and they're willing to share
what they know

but i
i was reluctant
i was confused
...and i was only to listen...
but not to give

we only appreciate when they're out of sight
we only miss when they've left
we only regret when we know
i took it for granted
and now i do regret it

i have another sets of months
to gain and begin to give
to unleash my true potential
before that time comes

choices left

when people asked me
"are you okay?"

should i just said i'm fine
and lying to myself?


tell them the truth
and get carried away again?

the day after

Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah
All praises to Allah the Creator of all mankind

thanks to all who joined the Janazah Ghaib Prayer
although it was quite a last minute announcement
quite a number sincerely waited and joined me.
May Allah bless all of us insya'allah

this is our first time ever
to be the leader of the prayer
I nearly cried
but I already did
during the presentation

who wouldn't?
when someone you care
just passed away
yet you've to present a poem
entitled grandmother
quite ironic

is my mother's birthday
may Allah grant her strength
may she use her time left
in Madinah
pretty wisely.
