A SUFI SONG

Trying to avoid the sun
Enjoying quiet in meditation

A SUFI SONG

 

I have ever felt defeat

Then hide in the cave above the mountain peak

Trying to avoid the sun

Enjoying quiet in meditation

 

Quiet in silence

Get rid of the world to pray

Hoping only on the pleasure of God

Where all love is received

 

I have ever felt disappointed

It is said to smile again

Trying to face life

Untouched by the poison of the world

 

And when the world calls

I hesitate to step outside

To once again step out

To unfold my Sufi cloak

 

Lhokseumawe,

100 Years of National Awakening,

May 20, 2008.

Cepat seperti angin // Tekun seperti hujan // Bergairah seperti api // Diam seperti gunung // Misterius seperti laut // Kejam seperti badai // Anggun seperti ngarai // Hening seperti hutan // Dalam seperti lembah // Lembut seperti awan // Tangguh seperti karang // Sederhana seperti debu // Menyelimuti seperti udara // Hangat seperti matahari // Luas seperti angkasa // Berserakan seperti debu //
