will five years be enough?

Black and white pi submitted by Yaseer and coloured by myself.


Am meddling more with Photoshop.


"Cakaplah dia kakak kita", he nagged at me when I told him I was late because the security guard held me back since it was not visiting hour. The line I made using a colouring pencil became crooked as my hand trembled. My vision became blurry as something was refracting the light that tried to reach my eyes. That was when I found out he wouldn't draw anything whenever I'm not around. The past few days of me neglecting his messages (because I was busy with a few stuff) resulted in him losing a few hundred grams off his already very light and fragile body because his mood started to go down the drain (of course, the appetite and others followed suit). "You're getting too attached to that kid", a friend said. When I popped the question, I had already prepared myself to get attached to this kid. Trust me, I had seen quite a number of similar things before, but none captivated me as he did. But... when one says one is prepared for anything, he/she can never predict what may come, only The All-Knowing knows everything. He/she can only hope for the best. Kerana itu, adanya suruhan agar kita tawakkal (berserah) kepada Allah selepas sudah berusaha bersungguh-sungguh dan bukan terlampau yakin segalanya akan mengikut perancangan dan usaha kita. Kalau tidak, mudahlah putus asa dan kecewa. Aku akan cuba, insya Allah. Ini tanggungjawab yang aku pikul sekarang dan setiap tanggungjawab itu ada suka dan dukanya tersendiri. Semoga kita semua hayati semuanya dengan kesyukuran, insya Allah.


Ayah pernah kata, "... Hidup kita, harta yang dalam tangan kita ni, semuanya bukan hak kita sorang. Ada orang ni punya. Ada orang tu punya. Kalau harta tu, ada daripadanya orang yang lebih tak berkemampuan punya. Jadi kita bagi dalam bentuk sedekah. Kalau masa, kena spend time dengan orang lain...".
