Rose.

“ To be sure, an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you.

But in herself alone she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses.

Because it is she that I have watered;
Because it is she that I have put under the glass globe;
Because it is she that I have sheltered behind the screen;
Because it is she that I have killed caterpillars, other than those that we saved to become butterflies;
Because it is she that I have listened to, when she grumbled or boasted, or ever sometimes when she said nothing.

Because she is my rose. “

Sayang

Aku tidak sayang kamu.
Aku tidak sayang kamu sepenuhnya.

Tidak.

Aku menyisakan ruang agar bibit itu dapat berkembang.
Layaknya bunga yang akan indah pada waktunya.

Tapi,kamu memberikan pupuk berlebihan. Karena bungaku cepat sekali berkembang.

Desiderata.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Ehrmann, 1927.

Untitled (3)

Woah, jadi banyak “Untitled” yah~

Untitled adalah kumpulan sepatah-dua patah kalimat yang engga sengaja kepikiran dan ingin ditulis entah dimana. Biar kesannya ada elemen absurditas gitu kan yah. Padahal mah engga.

Tai Banteng :))

Interpretasinya, tentu saja berbeda untuk setiap pembaca kalo ada yang baca blog ini :))

Ya, udah. Karena judulnya udah untitled, nulis ah.

 

Mungkin, mungkin yang dibutuhkan sebuah batu adalah kertas. Bukan, bukan untuk mengalahkan dirinya. Tapi, untuk membalut dirinya yang lebih keras dari gunting, tetapi bisa jadi, ringkih.
