What would you do when you are attacked?
Fight is out of the question, the persons involved are dear to you.
Flight is also out of the question since you could not simply uproot yourself and run.
The only option left is to curl and cry.
But even a sheet of steel can be eroded and destroyed when the sands hit upon it time and again. What can a heart that is made from flesh endure?
Even a fortress made from mortar and stone will perish with time. How long can a stuttering heart stand?
.........................not too much, not long.
Remember, I am not Atlas....I am not a Titan that can shoulder the weight of world forever, or even Hercules that can hold it up for a while.
I am just made of flesh and bone....and flesh and bone is easily destroyed.
bawak bersabar dan ingat Allah..

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
