Reciting A Mantra


I recite a mantra a psychologist wrote me one day
“Aku mengasihi perasaan sendiri secara alami”

I wonder how accepting damage caused by others
Needs myself to handle it alone

I’m collecting the tears of my cold heart
and brew it as a tea to sip for myself

It walks like clouds, my memories
and every song I sing silently in my heart

I will rise, unlike a storm but a delicate sunrise
wherever my heart may resides
