Beautiful Words

Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.

Not YOUR Dreams / Bukan Mimpi-MU (Two Lingual Poem : English / Indonesian)

Not YOUR Dreams


Today I throw away my dreams

Hunk offutility sheathed with velvet

Scattered around in the dusty ruins


Something  lovely can fool

Like the droplets bitter poison-coated by honey

Sweet for a moment then kills


It is not me

Wake me up from my dream

So that I knit my new one

For this is not YOUR dream

 Don't waste your time

Bukan Mimpi-MU

Hari ini aku membuang mimpiku

Sebongkah kesia-siaan berselubung beludru

Berserak di antara reruntuhan berdebu


Sesuatu yang indah bisa menipu

Seperti tetesan racun pahit bersalut madu

Manis sesaat lalu membunuh


Ini bukan aku

Bangunkan aku dari mimpiku

Agar ku rajut mimpi yang baru

Karena yang ini bukan mimpi-Mu

Jangan sia-siakan waktumu
