Quote #119

You either have a God who sends child rapists to rape children or you have a God who simply watches it and says, “When you’re done, I’m going to punish you.”

If I could stop a person from raping a child, I would. That’s the difference between me and your God.

Kemarin aku kembali bertemu wajah kehidupan.

Muram.

Sesekali ia coba tersenyum, namun pahit.

Kupikir ia ingin bicara maka kuberikan telingaku.

Tak sepatah katapun diucapkannya.

Sambil mencoba membagi senyum kesana kemari, kulihat ia menunduk.

Ketika wajahnya muram, ia masih harus menerima beratus kata.

Dan aku bertanya, “Mengapa memaksanya mendengar ketika ia harusnya didengar?”

Fake friends are like shadows:
Always near you at your brightest moments,
but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour.

True friends are like stars:
You don’t always see them but they are always there.

Habeeb Akande

Fake friends are like shadows. They follow you in the sun but leave you in the dark.
