Batas Sabar

Ketika didera tekanan bertubi-tubi
Saat dituntut ini itu tiada henti
Lalu mendadak diminta patuh tanpa tapi
Wajarkah bersabar?

Saat semua yang dibangun diruntuhkan
Ketika hasil kerja keras bertahun-tahun dipandang rendah
Lalu diperintah bagaikan robot berkarat
Boleh 'kan tak bersabar?

Ketika makna hilang dihempas terpaan
Saat tak ada lagi alasan untuk bertahan
Hanya ada tanya berkecamuk dalam dada
Tampak jelas batas kesabaran

Sabar ada bukan hanya dalam menahan cobaan
Sabar mewujud nyata dalam upaya dan usaha
Sabar itu karena menerima dengan lapang dada
Bahwa setiap yang datang kepada kita adalah guru

Guru maha yang datang dengan tanya

"Sabar ada batasnya" atau  "Kesabaran sejati tak terbatas"?

(Sepucuk pelipur lara buat pejuang Komako yang diuji kesabarannya beberapa hari ini. Maafkan alumnimu ya gaes)

Understanding and Curing Limerence

(Excerpt from, nothing was written by me)The phases of limerence
Like other addictions, we see limerence originating from early life psychological wounding. We use it to fill a hole in our soul.  We  describe  limerence as the mother of all distractions and when working with clients in limerence we are  curious to uncover what is it the person avoiding dealing with?  So often there is deep unresolved emotional pain. The client has protected themselves by covering their hearts over the years and decades with layers and layers of reinforced concrete.  This was a survival mechanism necessary from growing up in a dysfunctional and often narcissistic family system. The reality is limerence never lasts – typically it spans from 6-36 months. Just long enough for us to pair-bond and continue the survival of the species. Recent advances in neuroimaging and neurochemistry are now mapping out these pathways for romantic love. We also feel limerence is a gateway to grief. It marks …

(More) On Goodbyes

I was never good with goodbyes
I am uncomfortable with all that come with them
Of saying goodbye
Of saying sorry and thank you of what has passed
Of letting go each and every little thing
Of the longing and missing
Of reminiscing all the memories
Of feeling the loss and the separation
Of knowing things will never be the same again
Of not knowing what will happen next
Of all the things that will change
Of all that will remain the same
Of what had happened
Of what might have happened
When we we are not together
My worst goodbye was when moving from Bandung to Jogja
Because it was home for years, where all my stories were written
Where memories, hopes, and despair was shared
First loves, crushes, and broken hearts were mend
Because I will never go back, and it will never be the same I wish I can just leave and disappear
Without saying goodbyes
Without feeling goodbyes
