Minah wants to be rich

come back home Minah….
without you I felt lonely
you’ve been gone for 4 days, 7 hours, 21 minutes
felt like thousand years
perhaps the clock works so slow
please be back my dear
I cannot live without you

… indeed I was wrong
  I’ve tried
to make you happy
but you know exactly how big my income is
I am just an administrative employees
how could be able to buy homes, cars and diamonds as you wish
do I have to corrupt?
you should be proud
for having me, Minah
poor but honest

Minah …., come home
I  miss you
trust me dear
my love is greater than houses, cars, diamonds
and even bigger than this earth

I promised
if later you come home
I will take you to ride the bus
we will see the lights at the Thamrin road
while eating the warm fried tofu
I bet you will be happy
so please come
I feel want to die
but better die than being a corrupter

didn’t I told you before?
for not too much chatting with neighbors

eventually turn out this way
Minah …., Minah

Anger and Love have no limit

A man was polishing his new car; his four-year old daughter picked up a stone and
scratched on the side of the car. In anger, the furious man took his child’s hand and hit it
many times, then spanked the child in anger.

He looked up and just realized all the neighbors watching.
The man was so hurt and speechless because of what he had done to a four-year old child
that he walked over to the car and kicked it many times.
Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches,
His daughter had written ‘Love you Dad’.

The problem in today’s world is that people are being used and things are being loved.
It’s so sad because actually  “things are to be used and people are to be loved”

Love Is The Answer
