Doa

Ya Allah, All Prise be to You, You are the Creator of all that is between the skies and the earth, Prise be to You for You light all that is between the skies and the earth. Praise be to You for You are the owner of all that is between the skies and the earth and Praise be to You for You are haq, Your promise is haq, and Your meeting is haq, Your words are haq, Jannah and Jahannam are haq, All Nabies are haq, Muhammad is haq, and Qiyamah is haq. Ya Allah, I submit in obedience to You, believe in You and rely on You and turn towards You and with Your might I fought (the enemy) and made You The Judge. Forgive my future and past sins, hidden and open sins and those sins of which you know of more than myself: You are the beginning and the end, You are the Only one worthy of worship and no one besides You is worthy of worship.

Aku

Kalau sampai waktuku
‘Ku mau tak seorang kan merayu
Tidak juga kau

Tak perlu sedu sedan itu

Aku ini binatang jalang
Dari kumpulannya terbuang

Biar peluru menembus kulitku
Aku tetap meradang menerjang

Luka dan bisa kubawa berlari
Berlari
Hingga hilang pedih peri

Dan aku akan lebih tidak perduli

Aku mau hidup seribu tahun lagi
