Why do I feel lonely?
“People come and go, none stayed”
That’s what they believe in
Why don’t people
Make attempts to stay?

What’s so hard about staying?
Are we devoid of social intimacy?
What do we seek in this world?
Is living about standing out?
By showing how “connective” you are?

Why do I feel lonely?
Why am I lonely?
Am I lonely?
I am lonely
I just don’t like to talk about it

Why is there a distance
Between you and me
I can’t handle the pressure
Of always being there all the time
Why don’t you try to be there…


Through the mountains of which I have flew
Here I land on top of the soil of which I will plow
To the land of which I sow
Here comes the plough
I hope something grew

To the opportunities I never know
And the chances I have blow
People come and go
Few stayed and bestow
With memories I can never throw

To the rains of which I have break through
All wet, uncomfortable, and no clue
We will drink hot chocolate and eat stew
Then our dreams will come true
And rainbows will show on our window view

At the end of the day
One must imagine sisyphus happy

Catharsis is a medium for me to channel my deepest feelings. Seldom I externalize my thoughts and feelings, hence to cope the “burden” I ought to release my weight by channeling it here.


Render unto thyself what is yours
Render unto themselves what is society
For in this world you are lonely
And nothing in this world is as pity
Like the person I would not like to be

Catharsis is a medium for me to channel my deepest feelings. Seldom I externalize my thoughts and feelings, hence to cope the “burden” I ought to release my weight by channeling it here.


Istirahatlah tanah
Tak apa-apa gugur
Selagi hujan masih mengguyur
Hilang pegal linu di pinggul
Akibat setahun memikul gabah

Istirahatlah alam
Silahkan berdaur
Selagi kami bertafakur
Seraya menjadi eksamen
Supaya bedebah muram

Istirahatlah kata-kata
Bersyair tanpa makna
Selagi guntur menghantui
Terjadi isak tangis
Berupaya menerka gerimis

Istirahatlah manusia
Hentilah berkelana
Selagi pelangi belum tampak
Jangan kita beragak-agak
Hujan lebat di luar sana

Kafka Alghifari

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.” -Thoreau
