HOPE FOR PEACE

Teachers and students “beg” peaceful settlement of the Aceh conflict to President Megawati as the Republic of Indonesia (2001)

HOPE FOR PEACE

 

This loneliness has no meaning

Enter into soul and languish

 

I do not know what will happen

Today, tomorrow and so on

I fell in loneliness and fear

 

Gunshots repeatedly occurred

Cries of children who lost their parents

All froze at heart

Has brought destruction

 

O God, in Your name

In this silence I prostrate

Expect Your hand stretched out

Touching all of us

 

Banda Aceh, Tuesday, June 15, 1999

A Poem was written when the Aceh conflict is at its peak. In every war that suffers most, the most miserable are weak and helpless.

    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 //
