FRIDA

30 09 2010

You rarely appear on the telly, for I watch just occasionally.

Maybe…you’re ordinary woman. But there’s something special hidden behind your brown-sharp eyes. Perhaps…you’re not the best news anchor this nation ever had, as I care only that you’re one of a kind. An elegant rarity. Probably…you sometimes do some sillyness in daily life. After all, you’re just a human. A being of imperfection.

No matter what the topic is. Whether it’s the conflict between Indonesia-Malaysia or the activity of Studi Banding. Watching you conduct the show with polite but striking questions send me reeling. Shall I lie about this feeling?

With or without glasses, your charm still magnifying. Yet the simple smile upon your face is a blister for many viewers across the archipelago.

Thy name is Frida. To me…you’re the stellar of news TV media!





Yang Terindukan

Ramadhan telah menghilang,

Beserta segala kenikmatan yang tersemat di dalamnya

Ketika tubuh sudah mulai terbiasa, harus rela melepaskannya

Melesat menuju luas langit dan pendar gemintang

Tak ada lagi ibadah istimewa setiap malam selama sebulan

Meski jujur, tak selalu mampu kulaksanakan

Merajut temali kasih, mengirim doa dan pinta pada Penguasa Semesta

Sambungan komunikasi spesial dengan Yang Maha Segala

Hari kemenangan sudah berlalu, menjalin hubungan antarsesama

Saling bertukar maaf, bersihkan diri

Kini berganti kenormalan hidup, menjemput rezeki

Menyusuri hari demi hari, berkelebat dengan ujian sesungguhnya

Coba persiapkan jiwa secara gemilang

Walau godaan mesti tak henti menerpa

Sembari menanti hadirnya kembali sang bulan suci

Sebelas bulan masih lama terbentang

Kala nuansa ruang dan waktu terasa begitu indah

Ramadhan selalu kurindu, hingga ajal menghampiri

"The Lyrics"

Sambut hari baru di depanmu, sang pemimpi siap tuk melangkah. Kita takkan berhenti di sini. Mengejar mimpi-mimpi.

Hidup bagai balerina, biar tubuhmu berkelana. Lalui kegelisahan, mencari keseimbangan, mengisi ketiadaan di kepala dan di dada.

On and on the rain will fall like tears from a star, On and on the rain will say how fragile we are.

We speak in different voices, why can’t we say what we’re thinking of? I’m just trying to find a decent melody. A song that I can sing in my own company.

Damn my education. I can’t find the words to say about the things caught in my mind. Life’s a journey, not a destination.

A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs. I look at the world and I notice it’s turning, With every mistake we must surely be learning.

Don’t let the world bring you down. Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold. Remember why you came and while you’re alive, experience the Warmth before you grow old.

You have to learn to crawl, before you learn to walk. What you don’t have you don’t need it now. What you don’t know you can feel it somehow.

Changes happening, what you had in mind turning into something of another kind. Timing’s everything and this time there’s plenty. I am balancing, careful and steady.

Jangan takut, jangan layu pada semua cobaan yang menerpamu. Demi masa depan cipta…Tetap tersenyumlah biar semakin mudah, karena kesedihan pun ternyata hanya sementara.

Better days will come (No you can’t always win, I guess you’d rather just wait) It’s up to us to make the best of all the things that come our way. In the time when new media is the big idea. Be yourself, no matter what they say…

Semua teman yang engkau sayang dan tinggalkan (sengaja atau tidak). Satu per satu menghilang, seiring waktu yang makin lama kian menua. Tapi kita coba kenangi semua walau telah tiada, bagai etalase jendela.

Now the time has come, so I must go. And though I lose a friend, in the end you will know.

Whatever happened to the life that we once knew, can we really live without each other? When you’re through with life and all hope is lost, hold out your hands. ‘Cos right till the end, friends will be friends !!!
