Something to share
Aku just nak share poem ni…byk cara nak blaja….ni salah satu…
Handwriting on The Wall
A weary mother returned from the store,
Lugging groceries through the kitchen door.
Awaiting her arrival was her 8 year old son,
Anxious to relate what his younger brother had done.
While I was out playing and Dad was on a call,
T.J. took his crayons and wrote on the wall
It’s on the new paper you just hung in the den.
I told him you’d be mad at having to do it again.
She let out a moan and furrowed her brow,
Where is your little brother right now?
She emptied her arms and with a purposeful stride,
She marched to his closet where he had gone to hide.
She called his full name as she entered his room.
He trembled with fear–he knew that meant doom
For the next ten minutes, she ranted and raved
About the expensive wallpaper and how she had saved.
Lamenting all the work it would take to repair,
She condemned his actions and total lack of care.
The more she scolded, the madder she got,
Then stomped from his room, totally distraught
She headed for the den to confirm her fears.
When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears.
The message she read pierced her soul with a dart.
It said, I love Mommy, surrounded by a heart.
Well, the wallpaper remained, just as she found it,
With an empty picture frame hung to surround it.
A reminder to her, and indeed to all,
Take time to read the handwriting on the wall.
Cam aku cakap tadi…byk cara kita boleh belajar dalam hidup nih…termasuk la daripada budak kecik…semalam sambil gi beli juadah berbuka, aku singgah jap kat tapak pasar malam…saje nak beli bahan basah sikit…tengah aku jalan2 tuh tetiba sampai kat tempat satu kakak ni…dia bukak surat khabar atas jalan jer…jual ulam2 & sayur sayur kampung…bukan aku nak citer pasal sayur tuh…tapi pasal anak dia…
Si ‘comel’ senyum kat aku masa aku lalu depan diorang…sebaya ngan Marwan lebih kurang…sambil tangan mengangkat plastik…seolah olah menghulurkan kat aku…”tha…tha”…kata dia…sambil tangan lagi satu memegang sayur pucuk paku…sebak aku tengok keadaan mcm tuh…anak2 aku jauh lebih beruntung kalau nak dibandingkan dengan si ‘comel’ yg terpaksa ikut meniaga seusia hijau begitu…semoga Allah melimpahkan curahan rezeki & rahmat kepada keluarga mereka…
