Cinta itu hoax? –Love is a lie?

(Indonesian and English translation)
We once got a task in school (in Indonesia) where we should define „What is love?“ (sounds like a title of a song –what it actually is). For me a quiet weird question to talk about as a school task. We were split into groups of boys and girls and should discuss about the question and our opinion´s towards it.
“Love are words…” was the first answer of a boy´s group.

I couldn´t agree. If love would only be expressed by words it would be worthless, without value. Just a human´s creation.
“Love is a lie” was the next statement. … More Cinta itu hoax? –Love is a lie?

Kehilangang focus

Actually I should be working on my study assignment right now. But my thoughts are just too far away at the moment to focus on things like study work. So instead of starring at the display or rather stalking instagram or old pictures that won´t improve the situation, I decided to write.

So if you want to spend your time for something useful, don’t read this. … More Kehilangang focus

Lah kalau memang ga mau cerita kenapa? Trus kalau mengungkap perasaan kepada “dia” biar apa? Kalau dia bales perasaan itu mau ajak pacar? Mau mengajaknya untuk bermaksiat? … More Pendam perasaan

A Confrontation With Death

Loss is a part of life. People lose children, a spouse, a sibling, a relative or a friend. But looking at the regions where war and destructions rules and death could reach you every moment, from any direction many are losing their parents, their spouse, a lot of friends, their siblings, their relatives and their children. It´s a genocide. There have been many before. But it is spreading and the dimensions become bigger. It´s the death of humanity And I mean it like I say. Because what is happening right now primarily shows us one: It´s not long anymore until Yaumil Qiamah (the judgement day) is coming.
To use the winter break for something useful I went to the Juma´ah prayer with my parents after a long time. The topic of the Khutbah (the talk the Imam gives before the prayer) was the signs of Yaumil Qiamah coming closer considering the actual circumstances. … More A Confrontation With Death

When someone you spend almost every day with would almost not be around anymore if she hadn´t been saved of taking her own life? … More Suicide
