Jentayu

 

Di paruhmu kemilauan sinar
Menyepuhi sejuta rasa
Kemulian di hatimu
Bening budi terdampar di jagat raya

Di sayap taufan kau jelajahi
Awan gemawan membawa rindu
Kasihmu menentangi kezaliman
Ketidakadilan

Jentayu
Patah sayap bertongkat paruh
Jentayu
Patah paruh bertongkat siku
Jentayu
Patah siku bertongkat dagu
Jentayu
Patah dagu bertongkat kuku

 

This happened to be my most favourite Sheila Majid song. This song was a duet with Nora. It was produced by former husband, Roslan Aziz or RAP.

If I am not mistaken, the lyrics of this song was from national laureate’s Dato’ Usman Awang’s poem, with the same title.

The meaning of this song is very abstract. The fight still have to be continued, with what ever resources and ability that one has, with the utmost sincerity. This is about “Perjuangan”. This is what prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H. wanted Muslims to stood for.
