It’s Not My Fight 

It’s not my fight… Over there,
My fight is to train my kids of what’s right….Over here,

What’s proper and ethical,
What’s flow from the heart and what’s logical,

to encourage creativity,
to teach them discipline and responsibility,
to interact in integrity,

to let them practicing persistence and endurance,
to help them to be hardworking and competence,

to have love, big heart and kindness,
to diligently bear any consequences.

Ah, certainly not an easy task,
Help me Almighty, I would ask.

Kelam

Apalah arti menang atau kalah,
Apalah arti sengit,
Apalah arti sibuk,
Bila waktu sudah tak ada,
Semua itu tak berarti.

Waktu berlalu seperti angin,
Masa kecil yang kunikmati,
Masa remaja penuh tantangan,
Masa-masa indah dan,
Tentu tak lepas dari ketaksempurnaan,

Tapi apalah arti itu semua,
Bila mereka telah pergi,
Waktuku telah lewat,
Tanpa ku bisa memberi yang berarti,
Walau hal simpel dan basic seperti,
Waktu dan cinta,
Menikmati kebersamaan dengan kasih sayang.

Ampuni aku, Dad,
Ampuni aku, Tuhan.

Mendung Memancing Emosi & Imaji, Dll LOL

​Mengapa di langit mendung tak bosan mengapung,
dan hujan terus bertahan,
memaksa lamunanku terbang melambung,
emosi dan imajiku bertaut-tautan,
tak mampu diri ini membendung,
riak-riak angan yang merusak tatanan.

Kepada siapakah ku harus bertanya
apakah kepada lidah ku yang tak henti bergoyang,
mungkinkah kepada Bu Endang yang doyan rendang,
atau kepada Pak Bambang penggemar nasi tumpang.

Ada apa dengan Bu Endang dan Pak Bambang?

Bu Endang dan Pak Bambang suka berdendang,
sambil meliuk bergoyang,
tak perlu keluar banyak uang,
yang penting hati tetap senang.

Note: Thanks to tinayap.wordpress.com for the idea of ‘Ada apa dengan Bu Endang dan Pak Bambang’ Hahaha LOL. 

To My Dear Fellows

Fresh water flows to the low,
to the white roses in the meadow,
so much goodness that I owe,
for every good things that you sow,
I’m sure they’ll grow and glow,
time’ll let them shine and show,
hope your every walk be fruitful my dear Fellow.

NOTE:
I’ve been blessed with so much goodness in my life, including so much goodness my friends & fellows near & far have brought to me…. I write this for all my friends & fellows that have supported me in so many ways… In spirit, in enthusiasm, in happiness & distress, you have shared so many insights & wisdoms to me…my life without you all will never be like this.


Confined

My voice is inside let it just confined,
Would you bear it in your mind,
Can you hear or find,
Are we really entwined?

If you ever think what I thought,
Is it something you’ve ever sought,
Or anything the world has ever brought,
Do you realize how the ferment has immensely wrought?

Note: I like Alan Walker’ lyrics style. The lyrics are surreal yet resonate well to many people & life subjects/interpretation. And his music is so emotionally moving. Inspired by his lyrics style & music, I try to write one.
