A LETTER TO A STORY IN THE PAST

As a piece of long forgotten story

A LETTER TO A STORY IN THE PAST

 

All hope

It turns out today to be a barrier

After fighting for so long

It turns out that logic is a winner

 

Forgive me

What you call reluctant to sacrifice

On the old pride

In the dreams ago

 

When the sense of controlling the soul

I had no intention of obeying him

Although half of the breath is restrained

I was still stubborn

 

This is my weakness

Which you call an ivory tower

Even if ever want to say

Want to succumb to an ego

 

When I write this letter

With determination, I decided

I can not and I really can not

Destroy all ideas

 

For you

Let it disappear now

Then with the wind

Untouched away

 

The gates of the fort have I locked

The border bridge is now enforced

And the lamps will be turned off

As a piece of long forgotten story

 

Lhokseumawe, June 15, 2008. The cornered canteen University of Malikussaleh.

Cepat seperti angin // Tekun seperti hujan // Bergairah seperti api // Diam seperti gunung // Misterius seperti laut // Kejam seperti badai // Anggun seperti ngarai // Hening seperti hutan // Dalam seperti lembah // Lembut seperti awan // Tangguh seperti karang // Sederhana seperti debu // Menyelimuti seperti udara // Hangat seperti matahari // Luas seperti angkasa // Berserakan seperti debu //
