Body Celebration

As I have just come to my sense that this cruel world has always been trying to show the life of hell to each of its creature by creating this natural instinct of insecurity that is spread externally and internally, I am finally choosing to refuse all the judgement of myself, by myself, and to myself, especially of how I should appreciate the way I look.

I spent almost the past 10 years of my life believing my soul has been fitted to an un-ideal body as it is bigger than what society thinks it should be, and that bigotry stops now!

Me and my body are as beautiful as a morning sunrise or any of your favourite things. I will still appreciate my body by supplying it with good consumption of food and having exercise as having a tight skin still obviously look nice, but if none of that goodwill turn out to be the way as what ideal beauty demands, I will never be sad and just be totally rocking it.

Wearing larger size of clothing will not me less valuable or less worthy. My body is a celebration and if the society thinks that I look big or fat, none of that thought are my problems. When you tell me “you’re fat!”, that’s your problem and you can all suck it! 😉

Anak Rantau

Anak rantau pergi jauh membawa mimpi-mimpi masa lalu

Penuh semangat memeluk masa kini yang kata orang cepat berlalu

Melangkah gamang menuju semak-semak dan jalan berbatu

Tak ingin berpikir kapan kembali dan bersatu

 

Anak rantau mencintai tempat-tempat baru

Bersorak-sorai berbangga hati membuat kenangan yang tak semu

Memamerkan pigura digital supaya seru

Pantang bersedih agar tak malu

 

Anak rantau rindu Ibu yang selalu memberi restu

Minggu lalu, Ayah berkunjung dalam mimpi haru

Membuatnya bangun dengan tetesan air mata syahdu

Memeluk guling seperti bayi meringkuk sedu

 

Anak rantau membuka kembali catatan terdahulu

Mempelajari setiap jengkal sampai ke ujung kuku

Bertanya kembali kepada dirinya yang dulu

Sudah seberapa jauh dia melangkah maju

Membuktikan bahwa dirinya tak akan pernah kalah dari semua tantangan perjalanan itu
