Quote

When i first became a teacher profesionally, i was ashamed of it. I did not want to be a teacher because i held on closely to the saying “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach…” and i questioned myself each n every day. And if everyone else around me can be upfront to me and say what they think of me they must have questioned the same thing. Some, if not most must have felt that i chose the easiest way to live myself. I have now completed 5 years of teaching and with God’s grace there will be more years ahead of me… and now i am no longer ashamed of it… I’m embracing it. It’s part of me, the way my dear students are to me… my doubts, my fear, my struggles, no matter how others see it or undermine it, i am the one that lives through it.

This is my confession

Mereka dan aku

Masih kurasakan hangatnya pandanganmu

Yg jadikanku kuat tetapi juga rapuh

Masih kunantikan saat kau menoleh mencari bayangku

Yg jadikan hatiku berlari dalam diamku

 

Apa kabar bagian hatiku

Lelah ku cari sinar mata itu

Sudahkah bosan kau di sisiku

menghilang dari hadapku

 

Sekali kau buatku tenggelam

Kebingungan di dalam ketidakberdayaanku

 

Dan kini saatnya pun tiba

Saat kau berdiam dlm bayangnya

Saat ku berdiri di kejauhan

Menatap dlm sendiriku

 

Apakah dia yg membuatmu bergetar

Apakah dia yg membuatmu hanyut dlm kelemahanmu

Akankah pandangan itu datang kembali

Dan melepaskanku dari bekuku

 

Bila melepas tak lagi cukup

Biarlah ingatan ini terhapus

Membawa serta tetes air mata yg luruh

Dan sakit dalam peluh

 

Karena pada akhirnya

Kita tak pernah ada

Hanya mereka dan aku
