Hi! This is Mala who doesn’t know you. Mala who knows you has died.

It is common for a slave to face existential conundrums after being liberated. Slavery could feel safer than freedom. But He who has liberated me promises me a bright future. 

He holds my hand and walks with me through scorching days and freezing nights. He made me shelter to sleep and protects me from wild beasts. He is a provider. He feeds me and will not let thirst and hunger touch me. 

He is warm and gentle. He never forces nor intimidates me. He rather speaks softly to my heart and let me decide. He believes in me. 

He is my refuge, my haven, my sanctuary. He sees me naked and I do not feel ashamed. He teaches me humility and loves me forever. 

I might not know Him, but He knows me. 

I know you want me

I know you want me

Returning Home

Home is not necessarily a place.

It is a certain time when you feel secure and content; when you can be yourself without needing to worry that you will be judged; when you don’t need to wear mask nor makeup; when you can talk about things others don’t even care about; when you can loaf comfortably and eat whatever you want, as much as you desire.

Home is you.

An adventure to chase the rainbow will start soon. I know I will be alone doing it, but at least I am home now. I am home with you.

I just cried a tear singing this song:

Tanah airku tidak kulupakan
Kan terkenang selama hidupku
Biarpun saya pergi jauh
Tidak kan hilang dari kalbu
Tanah ku yang kucintai
Engkau kuhargai

Walaupun banyak negri kujalani
Yang masyhur permai dikata orang
Tetapi kampung dan rumahku
Di sanalah kurasa senang
Tanahku tak kulupakan
Engkau kubanggakan

Tanah Airku - Ibu Sud
