home away

It's been about four months since I make a trip back to my hometown in Kuantan. Mum and Dad haven't seen me for months. The thing they always ask me is whether I put on weight or lose it. I'm planning to go back next week.

In the meawhile, I've written a sajak (malay poem) about being away from the family.

Kerinduan Penghijrah Kota

Di hamparan bumi nostalgia itu
detik manis sewaktu kecil
ditatang kepastian
kasih keluarga tercinta
sesungguhnya
tiada ruang yang memisahkan.

Bumi nostalgia
tiada lupa mengimbas segala
antara

keasyikan musim remaja
dan
pahit-mahit menggapai cita.

Kini
kian meminggiri
kian alpa
erti makna institusi keluarga
apakah dalam kedapatan
ada kehilangan
dalam kehilangan
baharu beroleh keinsafan?
