Unending Love

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age-old pain,
It's ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.
You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.
Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours – And the songs of every poet past and forever.

It's Not Right and It's not OK

A husband left her wife for his mistress, leaving her alone with her daughter, but they're not divorced yet

This woman, thanx to her husband's request before he left, has no job

Her daughter is still attending college but her father pays her tuition and her monthly wage

So they carefully use that money to survive, pay for electric and water bills

They even have to sell things like their fridge, air conditioner , etc

Their life's not like what they used to be, but they keep holding on

Come to think again, this is a common story here but most women, unfortunately, are too ashamed to tell it (Unless they are celebrities with paparazzis around them then the story can be told without being spoken)

It all started with poor knowledge about marriage. About how serious it is so when you decide to do it, you better be ready for the ups and downs because, hey, it's a promise you make in front of God. Not just some sorta legal way to get legal sex

Then comes poor citizenship data-taking. How a person can have so many identity cards in different cities just by paying the officers and automatically, he/she can fake his/her marital status.

Then, fortune. People with money have the urge to get more things in life. Including spouses. Flirting, cheating, all those stuff become the ecstasy from their boring i-can-get-anything-i-want life. On the contrary, people who in urgent need of money tend to do anything to get it. Even when it means you have to be a prostitute.

I'm not judging anyone here. I'll just leave this matter open to the minds of the readers. All I know is, those people in my story are not happy. Yeah, even the father. Because he's cheated himself by cheating the person he had personally chose as a wife. He might have what he wants but he's the truest fool.

From my pessimistic point of view. Good night.



My Dream World or it could be Everybody's Dream World

1. There should be lessons at school that can be really useful for the students. Lessons included making crafts, cooking, sewing, fixing stuff, lessons on administration (banking, tax, etc), so when some students can't continue their education, they won't be BLIND. They can SURVIVE their lives with dignity. People who are clueless tend to do ANYTHING without considering the negative effects. They are closer to things like commiting crimes, prostitution, drug addiction, etc.

2. A proper salary rate to any kind of workers. In Indonesia, workers' salary rate is still in the same amount as few years ago. While the price of basic needs, such as food, oil, etc., are increasing no matter how much they pay the workers. There should be a calculation towards our standard of living. It's ironic how some people can buy luxorious cars while that money they've spent can actually save a village from hunger.For example, there's no way, a single-man, high-school graduate, working as a shopkeeper, living in a monthly rent single-roomed apartment, no parents, no wife nor child, can even survive a month only with his salary of Rp 300.000,- It's our problem, that WE CAN'T APPRECIATE OURSELVES and put a low price upon our heads, despite of our inteligence and abilities. The 3rd world, developing countries are tags given by other countries because they see our people's inferior souls. We've been an independent nation for almost 65 years and still "DEVELOPING"??Somebody should raise and erase that shit!

3. Birth control. There are various methods. WOMEN should choose what's best for them, not men! Because, hey, most of those methods are applied to women, not men.DOOOH??! -_-'
Why birth control? Because raising your child without proper nutrition, control to health care providers even without proper psychological support will result in low weight birth, disabilities or even death/abortion. "OK,so I've made it through delivery.What's next?" Well, beside the bills for the helpers, meds, yadayada, you need to feed the baby with breast/formula milk, give vaccine(normally, it costs >Rp 500.000,-/baby), vitamins, etc. The cycle goes on until your babies grow up. If you don't do that, your babies will be prone to diseases and will not have a quality life. How can you expect to have a great next generation when you ignore their basic needs?

4. Health insurance. It's classic. People are afraid to go to hospitals not because of the syringe-needles, but by BILLS! I won't babble more.

5. Inarrogant leaders who'd listen even to children not to increase his/her popularity but to really listen to their innocent voices that are full of truth, dreams & hope.

I think, that's for now. Please, if there's anything you'd like to add, tell me.

This blog entry is inspired by the boys who sold newspapers until midnite comes, no matter how cold the rainy nite was. They gave me the same answer, "I can only go home after I sell all of these newspapers"
