Jaga Hati


Because

you see, 
your heart has strings.
And pulling on them hurts.

Heartache. 
It is the pain of 
failure,
disappointment, of
unreached ambitions.
It is the pain of
dejection, 
rejection, of 
unrequited love. 

But why does it have to hurt so?
Thing is, 
it doesn't have to.


The dunya is an ocean 
in which the makhluk -
an infinite number of creatures -
swim around in an infinite number
of aimless directions. 
Tie your heartstrings to the makhluk
and your heart gets ripped apart,
broken
because

you see, 
your heart has strings.
And pulling on them hurts.





Why not tie instead your heartstrings
to Al-Khaliq - 
the One who created all creatures?
Tie your heartstrings only to Al-Khaliq
and your heart is not ripped apart,
but uplifted.

Tossed around by the waves of the dunya,
it is nonetheless be at peace,
guided always by the One who created it.

You see, 
your heart has strings.
And pulling on them hurts.

Reminder to self
who also has to 
jaga hati.




Nah, lagu nasyid: 😬
