Standing On The Stem

by Syafiq Azhari




Often when I’m alone, the fear of losing things and people that I love pop into my head that I just can’t imagine how my life would be then.

But everyone knows that everything is temporary…even things that we love the most will be gone as time is moving, no doubt.

Only if I can put all those things into a small box that I can bring it anywhere I go, and open it whenever I miss them all anytime I want to, then I would be happy.

But that’s the fantasy of a toddler…and I’m not a child anymore…I’m a grown boy…I have to live in the world of reality and I’ve learned that..

..a grown boy shouldn’t be afraid of losing things that he love, that he has to be independent..

..grown boy has to stand up during the most difficult time in his life, a grown boy has to view a problem as an object to overcome and not to avoid...

..a grown boy knows that he has to keep moving even if he has to crawl on the hardest surface just to keep his dream alive...

..a grown boy has to possess the belief that everything lies in his heart , if he do want something, he has to struggle by himself no matter how challenging is that because no one would willingly do it on his behalf..

..a grown boy must be strong and had the instinct that he’s doing the right thing regardless of what people are saying...

..a grown boy has to be a grown boy...he has to stand on the 'stem' called HIMSELF...

Losing the people we love...even the thought of it scares me sometimes..
There are even times that i pray to Allah so that HE takes me first instead of them.So that I don`t witness the loss...Argh..we humans are so weak.
But fact is we have to face reality.
And with strength from Allah we can confront all obstacles insya Allah
