Di lewat ini,
Perlukah ada cinta?
Saat teman-teman sudah pacaran,
Namun aku masih lagi sendirian,
Lalu aku berfikir,
Apakah suasana yang mendesak?
Atau keyakinan diri yang merebak?
Mungkin juga nafsu yang meledak?
Aku capek melihat impian semu,
Sang pencinta dan cintanya yang dipaksakan,
Hanya untuk mempersembahkan
Yang dirinya juga seangkatan,
Dengan para pencinta yang punya sama fikiran,
Lantas tirakatku berpanjangan,
Membiarkan hati ini kenihilan,
Meskipun aku terus-terusan kangan,
Untuk merasai cinta seorang perempuan…

Love is one of the important elements of life which if absent might caused man to suffer of loneliness. In fact, there are group of people who believed that man cannot live without love. This sacred element has forced human being to strive for it and maybe for this reason, youth nowadays make full use of their time to make love by any possible way: flirting, sms, call, video call, dating and even through evil ways such as black magic (do you believe it?) and etc.
For that reason I was inspired to write the above poem entitled “Perlukah Ada Cinta?” (Is Love is Necessary”) from the point of view of teenagers’ life, and the need for love here I refer to what is well-known among the teenagers as “couple”. Therefore, there come the questions: is the love is necessary because of the circumstances? Or because of the lack of self-confidence? Or because of lust?
What I mean by circumstances here is simply peer-pressure because there are teenagers who desperately “couple” because they see their friends are doing so. I do not know why they feel themselves incomplete and not in the same level with their friends if they do not have boyfriend or girlfriend. Hmm, the second question lies on the individual himself where he has not enough trust toward himself which disable him to lead his life alone. Or the reason why will be the answer for the third question which is lust and this would be the most terrible reason for the existence of love.
Whatever the reason is, I would say sorry for them since they are pathetic if the reason why the need love is the answer for one of the questions above of even for any other reason except the need of love is for the purpose of marriage as what is propose by Islam. Hahaha, by saying so, I am very definite that some people will condemn me for being so fusty, old-fashioned, rigid and out-dated since everything must be linked with Islam. Whatever the critics are, I do not mind because if trying to be a Muslim who follows Islamic teaching is old-fashioned and fusty let I be one of it, hahaha.
