i referred my life to a music. we knows that music has different genres. like ballad,
classics,metal,mellows, or even rock. all of these has a meaningful definition.

my life has different genres too. sometimes trials, impediments, obstacles, hindrances
consequences stiked my life. but see! i’m still here! it’s still me! i’m still alive!

sometimes i fall, sometimes i win. well, that’s my life in GOD’S HAND. when i fall, God
carry my wings up high. He never leave me when i walk barefooted in the Dark room that
full of thorns and suffocated by the Bondage of sins.

in music, it needs to compose a Good lyrics and nice beat to make a wonderful song. of
course! through the help og musical instrument we can create a perfect music.

to play a Good music, it needs to press the right keys and notes to gain the perfect sound
or else one wrong move leads to imperfect music and do it again and again until it makes

Like life, even if i stumble and fall, i never surrender. ‘coz i know that God is always
there for me to raise me up and walk me until my last breath…
