There goes pepatah melayu;
“benih yang baik dicampak ke laut menjadi pulau”
How good the seed can be? how can it be measured? for the seed of a plant takes turn one after another to grow the way it has to grow but no one can expect how fresh it will be right then..
Same implies to human.
(For the common) there are days when parents are ready to set foot on the path of life; they play with the children and kindly gather love for them along the way. never had a thought that the way of raising children is hard for they believe it’s worth sacrificing.
As the days go on, and the weeks, and the months and years, the parents grow old while the children are well brought up and ready to leave home; for better education, for better stage of life (promising they will come back home someday)
Yes we do keep the promise well. we visit parents regularly, we go home very often, never forget to give them a call, never miss to include them in prayer.. but the very matter to ponder, are we performing role as good as we’re expected to do… cause there are certain time when we deliberately commit something we know mothers wont like it.. or we know it had never been taught that way- faking reasons on purpose just to do what they forbid us to do (we know we’re going to tell lies anyway..)
It could be that way – how people live on.. as adults, perhaps as a growing child who carries weaknesses, not as good as we’re first raised at home. how wonderful outside world might be, the best comes from home.
Remember that Allah can meet all our needs through one simple manner – get the parents’ bless, you’ll get His bless.. =)
So lets be the benih yang baik. in case we’re thrown away to the sea, lets be the pulau~
