MANAGING REVENGE

(for YS and friends)

Everybody knows all of you
who sent me here due to revenge
and all of you were playing god torturing me for ages
apparently because I am a sinner without much thinking
doesn’t torturing me for quarter of a century is also wrong and sinful?

But do know
that’s its your revenge that catapulted me
to this peak
which you could barely climb
and you could only bark profanities for years like a lice infested dog

And everybody knows
your Qiblah is not the Kaabah but a corner in the Holy Land
and your revenge are united with theirs

Oh my! Whose revenge are these riddled in your chest if not theirs?
God thank you
You had given me victories
and that man is bathing in glory of his revengeful win united with their revenge
that inflicted wounds after wounds
on the dome of Al-Quds

Ah! Revenge has proxies too

Sorry, at this end of Ramadan nights searching for Al Qadar
He touched me with inspirations to write a long poem
about your revenge and once again
said, I am God and its not them
keep going with your total submission

Bismillahi Tawwakal Allalah*

Note: Prayers indicating the act of total submission to God in
Islam.

MENGURUS DENDAM
(Untuk YS dan kawan-kawan)

Kita semua tau
engkau semualah yang menghantar ku ke sini
kerana dendam mu
dan kalian mahu menjadi tuhan
menyiksa ku sekian lama
kononnya kerana aku pendosa
tanpa sedikit pun berfikir
sesuku abad aku disiksa
itu bukankah dosa juga namanya?

Tapi ketahuilah
bahawa dendam mu jugalah
yang menghantar ku ke puncak ini
yang sedikit pun tidak terdaki oleh mu
dan engkau hanya mampu
menghambur nista bertahun lamanya di kaki bukit itu
seperti seekor anjing kurap

Dan kita semua tau kiblat mu bukan Kaabah
tapi di satu sudut di bumi Anbia
dan dendam mu
bersatu dengan dendam mereka
Aduhai!
Dendam siapakah yang bersarang di dada mu
jika bukan dendan mereka?

Tuhan ku terima kasih
Engkau telah berikan kemenangan kepada ku
dan lelaki itu gah
dalam kemenangan dendamnya
yang bersatu dengan dendam mereka
memalit duka tak henti-henti di Kubah Al Quds

Ah! Dendam juga ada proksi rupanya

Maaf!
Di malam-malam akhir meniti Al Qadar ini
Dia menyentuh ku dengan ilham
untuk menulis puisi tentang dendam kalian
dan sekali lagi berkata
Akulah Tuhan mu! Bukan mereka
teruskan langkah mu
dalam istiqamah
Bismillahi Tawakkal Allalah
