you [and I] are NOT for everyone

.

.

.

you [and I] are not for everyone.

there are

poems within us that people will not be able to handle,

storms surging through our bones that young men and women will never be able to weather

.

see,

you [and I] have a love inside of us that will ooze from our very veins

like honey on a hot day

and

you [and I] will never be able to stop it

you [and I] are going to fall deeply in love with the wrong world

— the kind of world young girls dream of, the kind of world where people say how they feel and love whom they love —

.

you [and I] will forever be attached to the deep parts of those you [and I] tangle ourselves within,

though they will never get their hands dirty long enough to uncover the treasure that hums within our dancing pulse

.

.

you [and I] are going to be misunderstood in the way you [and I] care,

for you [and I] will love people not for what is obvious within them,

but for what is hidden beneath their masks

.

.

you [and I] are not going to revel in their freckles,

you [and I] will not compliment the hues within their eyes

you [and I] are going to live for the way they breathe in the cold December air,

watching as their chest rises and falls like our very heartbeat

you [and I] are going to live for the way their pupils dilate when they talk about something they are truly passionate about,

when their cheeks flush from a compliment or the unexpected brush of our foot against their leg

.

.

NO,

you [and I] are not for everyone

you [and I] are never going to be able to stop ourselves from screaming our love from rooftops,

you [and I] will never be able to play it cool

you [and I] are the kind of person who will worry about the strangers you [and I] see in grocery stores,

the kind of person who will stay up at night wondering about our fifth grade crush,

hoping that the sun is setting beautifully wherever they rest their head

.

.

for that,

I hope you [and I] protect ourselves

.

.

I hope that you [and I] do not let the world condemn you [and I]

for being too loud,

too expressive,

too soft;

that you [and I] do not let it convince you [and I] to be perfect instead of real

I truly hope that you [and I] celebrate the fact that

.

you [and I] are not for everyone

.

that you [and I] are not impressing the kinds of people who were built on the foundations of a sad world

If there is anything you [and I] do,

please,

let ourselves rejoice in the fact that you [and I] do not fit in,

that you [and I] think differently,

because there is a chaos that laughs inside of you [and I]

and

it is going to change lives

.

it is going to make even the cynics believe again

it is going to grow love from thorn and glass

.

.

.

elephant and dog

.

an elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time

.

three months down the line,

the dog gave birth to six puppies

.

six months later,

the dog was pregnant again

.

and

nine months on

the dog gave birth to another dozen puppies

.

the pattern continued

.

.

on the eighteenth month,

the dog approached the elephant

it’s questioning:

Are you sure that you’re pregnant?

we became pregnant on the same date,

I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies,

and they are now grown to become big dogs,

yet you are still pregnant,

what’s going on?

.

the elephant replied

There is something I want you to understand,

what I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant,

I only give birth to one in two years,

when my baby hits the ground – the earth feels it,

when my baby crosses the road,

human beings stop and watch in admiration,

what I carry draws attention,

so,

what I’m carrying is mighty and great

.

.

.

.

.

NEVER LOSE FAITH

not even when you see others receive answers to their prayers

NEVER BE ENVIOUS

if you haven’t received your own blessings

NEVER DESPAIR

.

.

say to yourself:

MY TIME IS COMING,

AND

WHEN IT HITS THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH

PEOPLE SHALL YIELD IN ADMIRATION

teka-teki rasa

.

cara terbaik untuk menjawab teka-teki rasa adalah dengan berhenti mencari jawabannya

.

berhentilah mencari tahu apa dan bagaimana sebenarnya perasaannya

.

berhentilah menerka-nerka setiap huruf yang ia reka

.

berhentilah menghubung-hubungkan keadaannya dengan keadaanmu

.

berhentilah mencari tahu semua jawaban teka-teki itu

.

karena ini teka-teki rasa,

semakin kamu menebak,

semakin hilang kemurnian rasanya,

semakin banyak rasa-rasa lain yang turut larut

.

.

.

jadi,

tak usah kamu terus menerka

.

.

bila dia memang memiliki perasaan terhadapmu,

maka ia akan memperjuangkanmu dengan cara yang dicintai-Nya

.

jika tidak,

mungkin rasa itu tidak murni karena-Nya

atau

mungkin saja,

Allah masih belum mengizinkan waktu itu tiba

.

tidak usah larut dalam penantian

.

karena setiap teka-teki,

jika sudah waktunya terjawab,

pasti akan terjawab dengan benar

.

tidak bisa di satu sisi saja

.

ia saling terhubung satu sama lain

.

jadi,

jika kamu bukan jawaban

dari teka-teki perasaannya

atau,

jika dia bukan jawaban

dari teka-teki perasaanmu

.

itu sesederhana

MEMANG BUKAN BEGITU JAWABAN TEKA-TEKINYA

tidak akan bisa

dan

tidak usah disesali

Allah sudah mengaturnya

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

ikuti saja cara-Nya

.

.
